A handy guide to help enjoy your Yankee Candle® for longer!
Trim the Wick
Keep your wick trimmed to 3-5mm at all times, even the ﬁrst time! Yankee Candle wick trimmers are recommended. If any smoking should occur when burning, extinguish the ﬂame, trim the wick, remove the trimmings,and relight the candle.
Let the Wax Pool
Each time you burn your candle, allow the entire top layer to become a fragrant pool of liquid wax and you’ll get the biggest, boldest scent possible. This will also help prevent tunnelling.
Burn it Safely
Always burn your candle on a heat resistant surface, keep it out of drafts, away from children and pets, and never leave unattended while lit.
Know When to say Goodbye
When only 1.5cm of wax remains, it’s time to let your candle go. A candle snuffer is recommended to extinguish candles with care.
Illuma-lids and jar shades are great candle tools that help prevent tunnelling and promote a clean, even burn and can enhance the look of any room.
Votives are made to liquefy, so must be used onlyin appropriate holders; never burn freestanding.
Place a melt in a suitable non-electric meltwarmer, and light an unscented tea light candle beneath (Yankee Candle® Unscented Tea Lights,are recommended).
