These Candles Won’t Self-Care Themselves

A quick guide to maximizing your candle experience. Let's enhance those rituals!

  • Step 01

    Trim

    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.

  • Step 02

    Burn

    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.

    For all burns, never let it go on for more than 4 hours.

  • Step 03

    Center

    Ensure the wick is centered.

    After each burn, adjust the wick while the wax is still molten.

  • Step 04

    Upcycle

    When a 1/4” of wax is left in your candle, it’s time to 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.
