How to get the best results from your new Hughes Candle
Now that you have received your new candle, it is important to follow some simple steps to ensure that you get the best results from your Hughes Candle.
Step One: It may take you a couple of tries to get your wick lit at first. When we pour our candles we pour the wax directly on the wicks so they get saturated with the wax to help them burn better. As a result, sometimes you may have to light them a couple of times to get them started.
Step Two: When you light your candle for the first time, it is best to let it burn for at least 2 hours to ensure that you achieve a complete burn pool. If you blow it out prior to achieving a completely liquid surface you run the risk of having your candle "tunnel."
Step Three: It is better to keep your candle away from drafts to prevent your wicks from prematurely burning out.
Step Four: When you light your candles subsequently, make sure that you gently remove any excess, rounded, burnt section of the wick with your fingers or a wick trimmer, keeping your wick approximately 1/4 of an inch when you relight it.
Finally, we hope that you thoroughly enjoy your candle and that it's beautiful fragrance brings you much joy!
