How to Burn Properly

WoodWick Candles are safe to burn, but as with any candle, there are some best practices when dealing with an open flame to not only ensure a clean burn of your candle but also to ensure the safety of your home.

Best Practices for WoodWick Candles

Most people will have experience with cotton string wicks, but because all WoodWick Candles have wooden wicks you may not think that there is the same level of maintenance; indeed there is. Below are some of the most important practices to ensure a proper burn, starting with the wick.

  • When lighting Hearthwick candles for the first time, make sure to light the entire way across the wick to allow for an even burn.
  • Most other candles are recommended to burn for a maximum of 2 hours. With WoodWick Candles it is suggested to burn for 3-4 hours to ensure the melted wax reaches the edges of its container.
  • Give enough time for the candle to completely cool before relighting.
  • Trim the wick to 1/8 of an inch and remove all the wick trimmings before each new use.
  • Set candle on a burn free surface and keep away from pets and children.
  • It is also strongly recommended to avoid setting the candle near vents or open windows to prevent drafts catching the flame or prematurely blowing the candle out.
  • WoodWick Candles should be smoke free but if your candle is smoking it is likely in a drafty area and should be moved.
