just like us, candles hold onto the memories of their past experiences. if a candle is blown out too soon it will gain a memory ring + all subsequent burning will be restricted by that first incomplete burn.
to prevent memory rings + tunneling, always burn your candle long enough for the wax to melt to the outer edges. this is especially important for the first burn.
never allow your candle to burn for more than 4 hours at a time. we find 3-4 hours to be perfect.
always trim your wick to 5mm prior to lighting.
keep your candle free from foreign objects, including matches + wick trimmings.
always burn on a level, fire resistant surface, away from drafts + vibrations.
the ritual of candle lighting is an opportunity to take a moment in the present. allow yourself a few minutes to breathe, relax + enjoy the aroma.
