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:
Trim your wick to ¼”. Do this carefully to avoid breaking the wick.
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.
If necessary, use a heat safe tool to straighten the wick. This can help the candle burn more evenly.
Burn for two hours at a time for the best burn and longest burning candle.
Extinguishing your candle:
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.
Use the tool to straighten the wick.
