Black Sage Home candles are made using a vegan coconut and soy wax blend and an eco-friendly, sustainable, non-toxic wooden wick. For the first burn, allow the wax to melt across the entire candle. This will typically take about 2-3 hours to achieve and ensures a long lasting, even burn each light.
Wood wicks need to be trimmed to 1/8” or less prior to burning your candle – every time! This allows for an optimal burning experience, preserves the look and longevity of your candle. Use a sharp wick trimmer to ensure a clean cut. Remove any debris or wick trimmings to prevent reigniting and creating a large flame (remember, safety first).
Do not allow the candle to burn longer than 4 hours at a time and refrain from lighting when there is less than ¼” of wax remaining. And lastly, light and enjoy your candle – it should be an experience for the senses!
