These babies make you work... 

Alright - so... wooden wicks can be a bit temperamental. But, we promise you that the work you put into these beauties is SO worth it. Here’s what you need to know: 

The first burn is the most important

our wicks are custom made to fit our jars perfectly - but give your wick a little love before you light it by giving it a bit of a trim - about 1/4” above the wax. Remember, our wicks are wood + untreated - so they need a little help to get going. We recommend using a BBQ lighter + leaving it on the wick for about 20-30 seconds to get it going. The wick might not catch right away (just like when you light a bonfire!)... but keep trying until you see a strong flame. 

make sure you let your candle burn for at least 1 hour to allow the wax to melt evenly across the entire candle. This will allow the candle to burn beautifully + evenly every time you light it. If you don’t - you might end up with a candle that tunnels... and nobody likes that! 

Trim those wicks! 

Be sure to break off the burnt pieces before each re-light. This helps your wick have a strong burn + allows the wax to melt evenly every time. This is super important - don’t forget! 

Keep out of reach from children + pets

This is a no-brainer... but just in case - keep your candle out of reach from your kiddos + fur babies. 

And finally...

Burn on a heat safe surface + away from drafts
