How to Burn a Soy Candle

The first time you light your soy candle, be sure to burn it one hour per every inch of the candle’s diameter. For example, the first time you light a three inch wide candle, let it burn for three hours or until the wax is melted completely across the top of the candle. A candle that has been “trained” in this manner will result in a completely consumed candle, that is, an empty jar. Lighting the candle for only a few minutes initially will result in “tunneling” or only melting the wax that is closest to the wick and wasting the rest of the wax.
