Before each lighting (including the first use), trim the wick to approximately 1/4" in height for a clean and even burning experience. Trimming the wick will also help extend the life of your candle. Keep completely out of drafts. Burn at least 1 hour (but no more than 4 hours at a time) then allow to cool completely before moving or re-lighting. Extinguish and stop using candle when only 1/4″ wax remains. Keep foreign matter and wick trimmings out of candle to prevent fire. Only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface. Do not leave a burning candle unattended. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
