Keep your week trimmed to a length that is 5-7mm. Not only will tis help your candle to burn better but it will also prevent smoking and minimise black soot forming on the glass. A small amount of black soot on the glass is normal and it may inscrease the closer your candle gets to the bottom of the vessell. To remove simply wipe a wet cloth over it to clean it onc the wax it cooled and hardened.
Candles develop a “burn memory”. The first time you burn your new candle aim to burn it for at least 2-3 hours. You need to ensure every time you light it that you allow it to burn all the way to the edge of the glass leaving an even pool of melted wax. Failure to do this will result in your candle ‘tunnelling’.
Keep your candle away from a window or drafty areas. The candle can be damaged if it is accidentally extinguished before it has been able to burn evenly to the edge.
