The Art of Candle Burning

The Art of Candle Burning

There is a subtle art to candle burning. If you adhere to the following tips, it will ensure that you get the most enjoyment and use from not only your Gavin Luxe Candles but your other candles as well.

Burning - The first time you burn a candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the entire top is liquid with wax. This will help your candles to burn more evenly the next time.

Trim the Wick -  Always always trim your wick prior to each burn. It's best to trim your wick to 1/4-inch in length before lighting it.

By shortening the wick your candles will burn slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around your vessel glass.

Tip: Should you get black marks around the inside of your vessel, simply wipe with a damp towel and allow to dry before relighting.

Placement - Always place your candles on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning.

Realign the Wick - After blowing the flame out, re-center and straighten your wicks.

Tip: Bamboo skewers are perfect to use to recenter your wick. Safety Never leave me unattended. This could be a fire risk.
