Candle Care

Here are a few tips to help keep the integrity and quality of your Fawn Joan & Co. candle so that you may enjoy each burn.
  1. When lighting for the first time, burn candle for 2-4 hours to ensure the candle melts across the entire surface. This will help to avoid tunneling.
  2. Trim wick to ¼ of an inch before each burn to promote an even burn, steady flame and limit sooting/mushrooming of wick.
  3. To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle more than 4 hours at a time.
  4. Trim the candle wick after each burn. This will prevent the candles from smoking on the next burn or from burning the sides of the glass. We recommend trimming them to 1/4th to 1/8th of an inch each time. Do this with wick trimmers which will cut and remove the excess wick cleanly.
  5. Extinguish candle with a snuffer, or dip wick into melted wax and then straighten wick to prevent smoking and to prevent hot wax from splattering. Do not blow out.

CAUTIONARY HACKS

Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. These signs indicate the candle is not burning properly and the flame isn't controlled. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before re-lighting.

To maximize scent throw, burn in desired space for 30 mins with the door closed. Open windows and doors will disperse scent.

Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place.  Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting.

Do not burn your candle all the way down.  Always leave at least ½ inch of non-molten wax at the bottom.

Always burn candle within sight.
