These Candles Won’t Self-Care Themselves
A quick guide to maximizing your candle experience. Let's enhance those rituals!
Prior to each lighting, trim the wick to 1/4” for a clean and smoke free burn.
Consider using the Boy Smells Wick Trimmer.
Also, always protect the surface on which the candle sits.
On your first light, allow the entire surface of wax to melt — Minimum of 3 hours. There will be some “wax wall hanging,” but that’s normal.
After the first burn with wax melted to the edge of candle vessel, never let it burn for more than 4 hours. Discontinue use when there is only 1/4" wax left in the vessel.
Ensure the wick is centered.
After each burn, adjust the wick while the wax is still molten.
When a 1/4” to 1/2" of wax is left in your candle, it’s time to discontinue use and upcycle the glass.
Always remove the remaining wax.
Pro cleaning tip — put the candle in the freezer until the wax is frozen, then said wax should pop out easily.
