A Few Candle Burning Tips ...
Get it right the first time.
Just like the first cut is the deepest, that first burn is the most important. Candles should burn one hour for every 1 inch in diameter of the actual candle size. For example, a candle that is 2 inches across should burn for 2 hours. If a candle is not burned for long enough to allow the wax to liquefy or to melt from edge to edge of the container, it will create a "memory ring." Once a candle has a memory ring, it will continue to tunnel for the life of the candle.
Don't keep candles burning for too long of a period without a rest.
In general, it is recommended that candles do not burn for longer than 4 hours and cool for at least 2 hours before relighting. Burning a candle for too long will cause carbon to collect on the wick, leading it to "mushroom." The wick will then become unstable and produce a dangerously large flame. Plus, your candle will start to smoke and release soot.
Always trim the wick and check for debris.
Before you light a candle, always trim the wick to¼ inch and remove any debris left in the wax pool such as wick trimmings or matches. Any debris will add more fuel to the candle than it's designed to handle. Too much fuel can cause the flame to unexpectedly flare up or even start a small fire near the candle flame. Wicks that are left long or crooked can cause uneven burning, dripping, flaring and sooting. Trimming wicks will help prolong the life of your candle. Your candles will burn up to 25% longer if you trim the wick every couple of hours.
Avoid crackling and popping.
Lighting a "mushroom" can lead a wick to crackle and pop and release soot into the air and onto your candle container. Always trim your wicks to 1/4 inch before lighting, and never burn for more than 4 hours, otherwise carbon will start to accumulate again.
