Candle Care Crash Course: 

Thank you for spending your hard earned money with us!  I know that if you are vibin’  with Liberate and Lather… self-care is of the utmost importance.  Now that you have your candle to burn as you sip wine, chat it up with your besties, spark it by the hot water and  bubbles in your soaker tub, or my favorite ignite and write in the pages of a journal, we must give your candle the proper care.

Candle Relationship Guidelines: (Cotton Wicks)

Plan on burning the candle for at least an hour but no more than 4 hours. The wax needs to pool from edge to edge about 1/2″ deep. Not burning the candle until the wax pools to the edges can cause the candle to tunnel and burn incorrectly.
Trim the wax to 1/4″ after each burn. Taking care of the wick will allow your candle to burn properly. Use the wick dipper to straighten the wick upright and re-center in the candle.
Never blow the candle out. You could accidentally blow hot wax or a flame trail nearby.
Extinguish the candle flame by hoovering the candle snuff over the wick just above the wax pool to smother the flame.
Let the wax completely cool and harden before putting the lid back on and storing it or relighting it.
Never burn the candle to the bottom of the container, only to the last 1/2″ of wax. This could result in the container overheating and a fire.

Wooden Wick Candle Care

Always trim your wick before each use, removing all charred wood from previous burns. If you don’t, the wick may not stay lit long enough to fuel the flame, causing it to  extinguish itself. to trim a wooden wick remove all charred wood (we suggest a wick trimmer. 
Make sure to allow the wax to melt across the entire diameter of your candle on the first burn- this helps prevent tunneling, which can impact how well the candle burns.
As with any handcrafted product, variances in color and texture of wax and wicks may occur. 
Wooden wicks burn differently than cotton—treat it like a burning fire.
Hold candle at an angle when lighting; contact wick with flame for at least 5-10 seconds. This is super helpful if you are having issues with the wick catching fire.
Bic wand lighters or rechargeable arc USB lighters are more ideal than strike matches. 
Upon first lighting, allow the wax melt pool to reach the edge of glass before extinguishing to prevent wax tunneling. This may take at least 2-3 hours.
Before each use, trim excess burnt wood on the wick to 1/8-1/4”. This is very important! If not properly trimmed, the wick may not light, or flame may be too high.
If you notice the flame height getting too low after burning for an extended amount of time, it may be necessary to snap off any excess ash or burnt wood along the top of the wick. The flame will then return to its proper optimal height.

Quick Review 

Burn within sight on a level, heat resistant surface away from drafts, children, pets and flammable objects.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Do not touch hot glass on a burning or cooling candle.
Keep the wax pool free of debris and wood wick trimmings.
Always burn candles in a well ventilated room.
Never burn a candle for more than 4 hrs.
Never extinguish candles with water.
If smoking occurs, extinguish the candle, trim the wick and relight.
Handle glass jar with care. If the jar is broken, chipped or cracked, discontinue use.
Discontinue burning once 1/2" of wax remains. Burning beyond this point can present a fire hazard.
Due to the unpredictable nature of soy wax, it is normal to see some adhesion changes within the glass over time. This does not affect the ability of the wax to burn or mean the candle is defective.
