How to Properly Care for Your WoodWick Candle

WoodWick Candles are very popular items. And if you are a candle lover, then you want to be sure that you are taking good care of your WoodWick Candle so you can enjoy it for as long as possible. We sell WoodWick Candles to Edina residents, and we wanted to give you some tips on how to best care for and maintain them as well as how to use them safely.

  • This might sound obvious but it is worth repeating: always use extreme care when burning WoodWick Candles. Make sure you do not leave them burning unattended, and make sure there is nothing nearby that could ignite.
  • Make sure the wick is always trimmed down to about 1/8 of an inch.
  • Make sure WoodWick Candles are always out of reach of children and pets. The glass container gets hot when the wick is lit, and this can be a hazard to little hands and curious dogs and cats.
  • If your candle is nearly out of wax, stop burning it when there is ¼ of an inch of wax left at the bottom. If you burn the candle all the way through the wax to the bottom, it could cause the glass jar to shatter.
  • WoodWick Candles should be burned in a room that is well ventilated but protected from drafts.
  • Do not burn the candles for more than four hours at a time. Extinguish them after four hours, allow them to cool for two hours and then trim the wick again before you relight them.
  • When not in use, WoodWick Candles should be stored in a cool, dark and dry place. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight. That could cause them to fade if they are left in sunlight or harsh indoor lighting.
  • If you notice smudges or dust on your candle jar, it can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth or piece of nylon. You can dampen the cloth if you want to.
  • After you have extinguished WoodWick Candles, make sure they are not smoking and that the flame is completely out before you put them away.
  • You should keep the lid on your WoodWick Candles after they are cool. That can help prevent dust from getting into the candle or on the wick.

How to Get the Best Burn from Your WoodWick Candle

WoodWick Candles are growing in popularity. More and more people are learning that these candles are a lovely home decoration or gift. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they come in a wide variety of scents. Plus you get that great sound of crackling wood every time you light it. We sell WoodWick Candles in Woodbury, and we wanted to give you some advice on how to get the best burn out of your new WoodWick Candles.

If your WoodWick Candles are burning properly, they should burn the wax straight down the side of the glass jar and they will not produce a lot of wasted wax. A good rule of thumb is to stop using your WoodWick Candles when the wax has burned down to about a half-inch from the bottom of the glass jar.

When you burn WoodWick Candles, be sure to burn them for about two to three hours at a time. This will ensure the melted wax pool reached the sides of the glass jars, which will increase your candles’ burn time. You should also be sure to keep the wicks trimmed to about one-eighth of an inch. Snap the excess off with your fingers after the candle has cooled down.

If you don’t burn your WoodWick Candles for the recommended time frame, you will probably notice that the wax is pooling in the center of the candle and not burning evenly throughout the entire glass jar. Once this has happened, it is difficult to reverse. The wax could “drown” the wick and cause the candles to not light or burn properly.

If you notice that your WoodWick Candles are smoking, don’t panic. There are usually two reasons a candle will smoke. The first reason is the candle is in a drafty area of your home. Simply move the candle from where it is and that should help. But if that doesn’t work, extinguish the candle and after it’s cooled, check the wick. Chances are, the wick is too long. Trim it down to one-eighth of an inch and then re-light it.

In general, 10-oz. WoodWick Candles will burn for up to 100 hours, and 22-oz. WoodWick Candles will burn for up to 180 hours if you use them properly.
