Step 2: Preparing the Candle:
Trim the wick to approximately 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) before lighting the candle. A shorter wick helps control the flame size and prevents excessive smoking. Remove any debris or burnt wick remains from the candle surface to maintain a clean burn.

Step 3: Create a Safe Environment:
Place the candle on a heat-resistant surface, away from flammable objects and drafts. Ensure the candle is out of reach from children or pets. Lighting your candle in a well-ventilated room will prevent soot buildup.

Step 4: Light the Candle:
Use a long-reach lighter or matches to ignite the candle's wick. Avoid using paper or other flammable materials. Gently hold the flame near the base of the wick until it catches fire. Do not blow on the flame, as this can cause wax splattering.

Step 5: The First Burn:
Allow the candle to burn until the entire surface is melted. This process typically takes one to two hours, depending on the candle size. A full melt pool prevents tunneling, where the wax only melts around the wick, ensuring an even burn throughout the candle's life.

Step 6: Subsequent Burns:
Keep the candle lit for a maximum of 3-4 hours at a time. Extinguish the flame by using a candle snuffer or gently blowing it out. Before relighting, ensure the wax has solidified and trimmed the wick if necessary.

Step 7: Safety First:
Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep the candle away from children and pets. Do not move the candle while it is burning or the wax is still hot. Avoid placing candles near curtains, bedding, or other flammable materials.

Step 8: Enjoy Your Candle:
Relax, unwind, and let the soothing ambiance of your candle enhance your surroundings. Bask in the gentle glow and delightful fragrance as you indulge in some well-deserved me-time or create a cozy atmosphere for a special occasion.

By following these simple steps, you can maximize the burn time, fragrance, and overall enjoyment of your candle. Remember to prioritize safety and care for your candle, and it will reward you with countless hours of tranquility and charm. Happy candle burning!
