To optimize your Ebee Candles burning experience, I recommend these guidelines:
The first time you burn Ebee Candles, it’s important to allow it to burn for at least 2 hours to create a full “melt pool.” (Allowing the melted wax to reach the edge of the container)
Burn for no more than 3-4 hours at a time.
Trim wick to 1/8” before each lighting
Never leave a burning candle unattended
Always burn candle on a stable, heat resistant surface
Never burn a candle all the way down
Please note: Trim wick to 1/4 inch before each burn. Please see warning label on the bottom of the candle for safety instructions. To get the most out of your new candle, please burn until entire top layer (wax pool) is melted or the candle will tunnel (bore a hole straight down) and your burn time will be reduced dramatically. Do not let the candle burn all the way down to the bottom of the container. Stop burning when wax is at half an inch.
My candle wicks are a flat braided cotton wick with paper threads woven into the cotton; they are lead and zinc free.
