What should I know about taking care of a wooden wick candle?

You will need at least 3 uninterrupted hours available for your first burn.
A full pool of melted wax will keep the candle from tunnelling, or leaving wax on the sides of your vessel. Your flame height may vary, and may occasionally even appear to self-extinguish.
Even a low flame will continue to heat, and the flame height should return shortly.
Do NOT burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
When relighting your candle, always make sure to trim the ash off your wick.
You can break it off with your fingers or use wick trimmers, leaving 1/4” of the wick for lighting. Trimming will ensure that your wooden wick will stay lit and regulate your flame.


Can I find quick access to safety information if needed?

ABSOLUTELY! Each candle has a safety instruction sticker located on the bottom of every candle!


How will I know it's time to stop burning my candle and to purchase a new one?

When only 1/2 inch wax remains in your vessel, it is time for a new Cedar Ave candle! If you continue to light your candle past this requirement,
you take the chance of your jar overheating, causing a safety concern.
