HearthWick Candle Care

HearthWick Flame Scented Candles combine the best features of WoodWick and RibbonWick candles. When burned, the candle sounds like a crackling fire, and the long flame provides a warm glow. These candles allow you to experience the cozy comfort of a glowing fireplace anywhere in your home. Because the HearthWick Flame Candle is unique, it can occasionally display different burning characteristics than other candles. So, we want to provide a few simple tips to ensure you get the best burn from your HearthWick!

Light the wick all the way across not just on one end.
This helps the candle burn evenly.

Allow the candle to burn until the wax melts out to all the edges of the candle container.
This usually takes about 30-60 minutes. The flame height may vary at times and occasionally even appear to self-extinguish, but that’s okay! Even if you are experiencing a "low" flame, it will continue to heat and soon the flame height will return. The recommended burn time is 3-4 hours.

Keep the candle away from drafts.
Avoid having a candle burn where a ceiling fan, air conditioner or breeze will affect the flame.

Never move or handle a candle while it’s burning or while the wax is hot.
This is very unsafe, and pouring or removing liquid wax from the vessel will cause the wick to extinguish or "drown" in the wax.

Keep the wick trimmed to between 1/8 and ¼ inch.
If the candle begins to smoke, or if the flame height is greater than 1½ inches, gently blow out the candle, allow the wick and wax to cool, and trim the wick by gently running your finger across the top of it. Remove all wick trimmings before lighting the candle again.

Know that the candle is designed to self-extinguish when 3/8 inch of wax remains.
The candle is designed to self-extinguish at this point for your safety. Typically, once the wax gets to within half an inch from the bottom, you should stop using it.

If you follow the above burning guidelines, your HearthWick Candle should burn clean and straight down the sides of the glass jar with little or no wastage. Remember to follow basic safety guidelines when burning any candle: never leave it unattended, keep away from flammable materials and only place on heat resistant surfaces.
