Candle Care

You got your candle! How exciting!! Welcome to the Scented Kindly Family! 

1st burn:

Your 1st burn is the most important burn! Yes, it may take hours but please do not blow out your candle until the melt pool reaches the edge of the container.

Wick Love

Trim your candle wicks before using it again! Not a lot, just a little. If you see a "mushroom" cut it off. If you see the tips of your wick are grey, cut it off. We want to make sure when you burn your candle again, it is truly burning the wick and nothing else. (This is also on the bottom of every candle)

Too Much Heat

To avoid too much heat, don't burn candles for more than 4 hours at a time. I know, I know, I know, this will be hard for my candle lovers! But please try to remember 4-hour intervals. Give the wax, wick, and glass a break after 4 hours. 

Bye Bye Candle

When there is only about 1/2 inch of wax in the container, it is time to say bye bye to the candle. I know it will be a sad day, but it is okay, Scented Kindly has plenty for you!

Don't throw away the glass!

You can reuse the glass once the candle is left with 1/2 inch of wax. If the wax is back to being solid, try this!

1. Boil some hot water

2. Pour the hot water into the candle container & wait about a hour

3. The wax should have floated to the top!

4. Take the wax out, pour out the water, and throw away the wick. 

5. Clean the glass & now you are able to use the glass anywhere around your home.
