How To Properly Burn A Multi-Wick Candle - Pour & Penchant

How To Properly Burn A Multi-Wick Candle

A few simple steps will ensure your scented candles burn properly and safely while optimizing burn time and maximizing fragrance diffusion.

THE FIRST BURN. The first time you light your Pour & Penchant multi-wick candle, let it burn 3-4 hours until the pool of wax reaches the edge of the glass. The first burn is the most important and will prevent tunneling, which will extend your candle's life. The first burn should melt the top layer of wax thoroughly and evenly.

TRIM YOUR WICK. Trim your wicks to 1/4 inch before each burn. A large flame indicates your wick is too long. Trimmed wicks make for a cleaner burn with less smoky residue, optimize burn time, and maximize fragrance diffusion. For best results, we recommend a wick trimmer.

BURN TIME. Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time, and allow your candle to cool for 24 hours before relighting. With proper care, our hand-poured, multi-wick candles burn for 50-60 hours.
