Keys to a Perfect Candle Burn
#1) The First Light
Candles have what’s called a “burn memory.” That means when you burn a candle then extinguish it, the next time you burn the candle, the wax will only melt across as far as it did the first time.
That’s why it’s so important to burn your Kush Candle until the melt pool reaches the edge of the glass the first time you light it.
#2) Burn Pool
The burn pool is where the all the fragrance and terpenes are at! You want the candle to burn all the way to the edge of the glass, but then also burn down at least 1/4″ deep to get the best effect.
#3) Dip the Wick
When it’s time to put the candle out, use a candle dipper [we just use the handle of our dab tool] to dip the flame in the wax. Try to avoid blowing out the candle, as it’ll cause the wick to smoke (and ruin the awesome smell of your room!)
#4) Trim the Wick
All candle wicks can “mushroom” at the the top, causing excessive flickering and smoke. It’s important to always trim your wick to about 1/4″ before lighting. Usually, the “mushroom” knocks right off.
#5) Keep Away
This ones a no brainer, but we all get a little stoned and forget things sometimes. Keep the candle away from drafts in the room, and anything flammable. Always keep candles out of the reach from children and pets.
