Your candle is ready to light right out of the box, but each time afterwards its vital you trim the wick down to 1/4 inch- this will give you a longer, cleaner burn! Not only does keep debris out of the wax, but leaving the excess “mushroom tip” on the wick creates a larger flame which can leave soot on the rim of your candle as well as into the wax which can affect the burn and smell. After you put your candle out, let the wick and wax set back up and harden. Before you relight it you can use a pair of scissors or a wick trimmer to cut off the excess wick down to 1/4 inch.
