Get the best out of your candles by following these tips.
-Trim the wick: "trimming a candle wick to ¼” before each burn, you will get the optimal burn time over the life of your candle. The trimming of the wick not only helps with burn time, but it also ensures you don't get any residue or soot from your wick.
-Create a firesafe space: due to the oils and herbs in the candle, Lunar Libra candles are extremely flammable. Keep in a firesafe space, such a shallow bowl of water, away from curtains, and be sure to remove the paper tarot card before burning. Also, have it set up so you won't have to move it too much.
-Set intentions: don't light the wick until you've set a clear, specific, positive intention! Your candle comes with a card just for this.
2. During Burn
-Minimal movement: try to not move your candle too much while burning. Sloshing hot wax, and a flame swishing all over the place is not good.
-Allow the entire surface of the wax to liquify before you even consider putting the candle out. This creates the optimal condition for relighting without problems.
3. Post Burn
-Snuff don't blow! This not only keeps the magick in your candle, but prevents wax splatter. If you'd like, however, you can use a wax dipper to dip the wick into the wax to extinguish it, or spoon it over the wick. This stops the billow of smoke that comes after snuffing a candle, and makes for easier relighting.
