There are a few simple steps to consider to get the most effective and pleasing burn from your Koselig Candle.


  • The first burn is the most important. You will want to burn your candle for about 2-3 hours or until the melt pool reaches the edge of the jar. This will set the burn pattern and greatly reduce the possibility of tunneling (unmelted wax on the sides of the jar).


  • Trimming the wick to approximately 1/4" before each burn will help maintain a steady flame and reduce soot buildup on the sides of the jar. You can do this with a pair of scissors or gently break off the top of the wick with your finger and dispose of the wick shrapnel before lighting.


  • It is best to try to burn your candle long enough each time so that the melt pool reaches the edges to maximize the life of your candle. Don't sweat it though if you don't, you will most likely get it on the next burn.


  • Lastly, keep in mind that candles are fire and can be dangerous when used improperly. Please pay attention to the warning label on the bottom of each candle.
