  2. Candle Burning Instructions

Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Keep burning candles away from small children and pets. 
Keep candles out of drafts.

Beeswax tapers:

  • Cut candle wick to approximately ¼ inch.
  • Keep candle away from drafts. Candle will burn smoke and drip free.
  • To extinguish flame use a candle snuffer.
  • Trim wick to ¼ inch when re-lighting candle after wax has cooled.

Beeswax pillars:

  • Trim wick to ¼ inch.
  • Allow candle to burn 1 hour for each inch of diameter, or until the wax pool has come to the edge. The wick has been chosen to burn as intended, but some maintenance is required.
  • Use candle snuffer or push wick into wax pool to extinguish flame; pull wick out of wax pool before wax hardens.
  • Keep wick trimmed to approximately ¼ to 3/8 inch.
  • If wick develops a 'mushroom top', extinguish flame and trim wick.
  • If flame is very small and flickering, some wax may have to be poured off. This is usually the result of not allowing the candle to burn longer.

Beeswax votives:

  • Trim wick to ¼ inch.
  • Always burn votive candles in a votive container. The candle will melt wax completely and will need to have a container to keep the wax pool in.
