How do I care for my candle?
To get the most out of your candle follow the tips below for ultimate candle care:
Always remove the lid or duster (if you candle has one) before lighting.
Trim your wick to 1/8 inch before every use. This means you should trim your wick before lighting your candle every single time after the first burn.
Burn your candle for at least 2 - 3 hours especially the first burn to prevent tunneling. Don’t burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
Let your candle cool completely before touching or relighting (Tin candles get hot do not touch until wax is cool).
If your flame seems too big, snuff your wick, let the candle cool. Trim the wick and light again.
Keep wax pool clean of debris.
Burn on a flat, hard heat resistant surface.
Never move candle while lit or leave unattended.
Make sure candle is away from any flammables or draft.
Always keep candle out of reach of children and pets.
Remember to always use care and precaution when handling and burning candles. Burn at your own risk. Always place candle on heat resistance coaster/surface. B. Elevated Candle Co. and B. Elevated Candle Bar assumes no responsibility for damages that may occur from improper use, handling and burning of our candles and other products.

One of my same sized candles seems to have more wax in it.
All of our candles are poured by hand meaning there will be variations which is expected and normal. Your candle will always have a minimum of 1.5 oz. (Candle Shots), 3 oz. (Travel Tins), 6 oz. (Signature Tin) or 12 oz. (Area Vessel) of wax in its vessel. If you get lucky it may just have a little bit more!
