Burn the candle until it has melted all the way out to the edges. This may take 1-3 hours.
Trim the Wick
Before each burn, it is important to trim the already burned portion of the wick. This will keep the candle burning even, last longer, and keep unnecessary soot away.
Burn the candle for 3-4 hours at a time to maximize the lifespan of the candle as well as maintain the scent throw. Soy candles burn at a slower temperature and last much longer than paraffin candles.
