Candle Care

The proper burning of a candle is very important, especially for a beeswax candle.  The first burn, along with subsequent burns should allow time enough for the candle to 'well', meaning melt completely across the diameter o the candle.  The standard is for every inch of diameter you allow 1 hour of burning time.  In doing this a candle will burn so there is very little, if any, waste of the wax.  The only thing left will be the metal wick holder on the bottom of the container.
