Little Bee's Candle Burning Tips

To get the most out of your beeswax candle, follow these tips for the longest, cleanest burn.

Lighting your candle:

Light at the base of the candle and hold for several seconds to hydrate the wick.

Relighting your candle:

  1. Trim your wick to ¼”. Do this carefully to avoid breaking the wick.

  2. Light at the base of the candle and hold for several seconds to “rehydrate” the wick. We recommend holding the candle at a slight angle to avoid burning your fingers if you are using a regular lighter.

  3. If necessary, use a heat safe tool to straighten the wick. This can help the candle burn more evenly.

  4. Burn for two hours at a time for the best burn and longest burning candle.

Extinguishing your candle:

  1. Rather than “blowing out” the candle, use a heat safe tool to dip the wick in the wax pool long enough to extinguish the flame. 

  2. Use the tool to straighten the wick.
