With the Holiday Season approaching, I thought we should cover some candle basics...
1. Use a wick trimmer for a perfect trim.
Wick Trimmers make this task easy and create a nice clean cut that properly maintains the wick. Here’s how to properly use a wick trimmer:
Place the bottom of the trimmer flush with the surface of the candle. Rock the trimmer back so that the “elbow” now rests on the surface of the candle. Ensure that your trimmer is at a 45-degree angle to get the proper wick length. This will prevent the wick from being cut too short, causing the candle to burn improperly. Bring the two handles together to trim the wick. Discard the remnant wick before lighting.
2. Candles should not be burned for more than four hours at a time.
It is recommended that after burning for four hours, candles be extinguished, allowed to cool for two hours, and trimmed before relighting.
3. Follow the half inch rule.
Discontinue use of a candle when ½” of wax remains at the bottom of the jar. This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface or container itself. The glass can get hot on the bottom as the flame nears the base of the jar and most of the wax has been consumed.
4. For safety’s sake.
Always burn candles well away from drafts, other heat sources, and anything flammable. Make sure burning candles are out of reach of children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended.

When it comes to the next big thing... Wooden wicks are desirable because they create a uniquely visual and audible experience. As a candle burns, it gives off a soothing, soft crackling sound reminiscent of a fireplace. We will be adding wooden wicks to our product line in the near future.
There has been a major trend toward the scents that we all know and love, but may not typically associate with candles. Surprising fragrances such out tobacco fragrance have all risen in popularity – especially as more men become candle buyers and prefer more masculine scents. Be on the look out for more unexpected scents for your senses.
