#1 Keep the wooden wick short.
This is the most important tip we can give you....keep your wooden wick trimmed. After each time you burn your candle before re-lighting it, please trim the wooden wick to 1/4 inch. If the wick is too long, it cannot absorb the wax and burn properly. Most problems with wooden wick candles can be solved by trimming the wick!
#2 Burn in 2 to 4 hour increments.
Your first burn should last 60 plus minutes so the wax can melt evenly. An uneven wax pool can drown the wick and cause problems lighting it. To preserve longevity of the scent in the candle, do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time. Lastly, please keep your candle out of air drafts. Wooden wicks don't like air drafts, the flame will blow out.
