Here are a few tips to make your Simple Ritual candles burn as long and safely as possible.
The first burn is the most important
When lighting your candle for the first time, make sure you wait until the wax has melted evenly across the candle. By ensuring the whole surface has melted before you extinguish your candle, you'll avoid tunnelling and help your candle last longer.
Burn your candle for 3-4 hours at a time
While you may want to burn your candle all day long, to ensure your candle lasts as long as it can (40-50 hours), make sure you don't burn it for longer than 3-4 hours at a time. However, if you do choose to burn it for longer than that per session, it just means you get to buy a fresh candle a bit sooner.
Trim your wicks
Before re-lighting your candle, make sure you trim it to a 1/4 inch to ensure the smoothest possible burn.
Don't leave your candle unattended, and keep it away from young kids and pets. Make sure there are no flammable objects directly beside, below or above your candles while they are burning. All my candles are made from recycled glass, metal and ceramic jars; on rare occurrences, candles can burn too long or get too hot and the jars could crack, spilling hot wax onto your tabletops, making them very flammable. Please make sure you place your candles on heat proof surfaces and away from fabrics and flammable items.
