Keep wick centered and trimmed to 1/4". Any shorter and it may be smothered by the melting wax, any longer and it may smoke and candle will burn too fast. For best results, burn candle for 1 hour per inch in diameter that the candle is. Example: 2.5" in diameter...burn for approximately 2.5 hours at a time. Never burn for longer than 4 hours at a time.
Nudge any wax that has not melted down the sides/corners of the container. Go ahead and enjoy the soy wax on your skin!
Then allow it to cool and harden completely before relighting.
DO NOT OVER TRIM!
Extinguish candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly or the flame becomes too high. Cool, trim wick if needed, check for drafts and relight. Never leave a burning candle unattended and place it on a safe, stable and heat-resistant surface.
