TAPERS 

Always burn in a securely placed and level taper holder. 

Burn in a draft-free area. Drafts will cause tapers to drip.

Trim the wick to ¼ inch and maintain this length throughout use. The best time to trim the wick is shortly after extinguishing it. Cutting the wick while it's still warm will prevent it from breaking off. Because all of our wicks are 100% cotton, they become fragile once used. This is a normal. If you choose to trim the wick once it's cool, you can easily trim it using your nails. Careful not to cut the wick too short; if this happens, expose fresh wick by lighting the candle and allowing enough wax to melt around the wick. Pour the wax out and relight. Burn for a minimum of 1 hrs afterwards. 

Burn for minimum of 1hr to a maximum of 2 hrs at a time. 

Extinguish candle by using a candle snuffer or by very carefully dipping wick into wax pool. You want to make sure the wick doesn’t touch the wall sides as this may weaken the side wall causing it to drip later.


Troubleshooting


Taper Dripping

Tapers will drip if they are exposed to drafts. Only use tapers in draft-free area. Make sure to trim wick to 1/4 inch. 

Wick Won't Stay Lit

This can happen if the wick is cut too short. Expose fresh wick by lighting the candle and allowing enough wax to melt around the wick. Pour the wax out and relight. Burn for a minimum of 1 hr afterwards. 

Wick Emitting Smoke

The wick is either too long and needs to be trimmed or the candle is exposed to a draft.
