Helpful Tips

  2. Once your candle has solidified use a hair dryer on low heat and low air to level out the top of your candle and melt any wax that may have splashed on the sides.
  3. Trim your wick after each burn keeping it at 1/4 inch above the wax.
  4. Only burn your candle for 4 hours at a time to avoid uneven melting.
  5. Once you've burned through your candle, clean the vessel with water and alcohol to use as a planter!
