Extending the Life of Your Favorite Candle

Did you know there are things you can do to extend the life of your Joyful Living candle? It’s true!

Here are three things you can do to ensure you get the very most out of your favorite candle.

Trim Your Wick

Trim wick to a 1/4 inch before lighting. Every. Single. Time.

Wax Pools Matter

Allow wax pool to melt across the top, especially on the first burn. Doing this prevents tunneling and ensures an even burn for future burning sessions.

A Safe Place

There are ideal burning conditions for your candle. Burn no longer than four hours at a time. Keep away from drafts, sunlight and vents as they can impact the wick performance and cause the candle to burn unevenly or too hot.
