The First Burn: The Memory Ring

The initial burn sets the stage for your candle's life. Allow your candle to burn until the entire surface becomes liquid wax. This prevents tunneling and ensures an even burn throughout its life, typically 1 hour for every inch in diameter.

Wick Wisdom

Trim the wick to about 1/4 inch before each burn. A trimmed wick ensures a cleaner, brighter burn. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping, or flaring.

Burn Time Balance

While our candles are designed for longevity, it's wise to limit individual burn times to 4 hours. This preserves the candle's integrity and fragrance. Always secure the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface away from drafts.

Safety & Serenity

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep the flame away from moving air, flammable materials, and out of reach of children and pets. Extinguish your candle with a snuffer to prevent wax from splattering and preserve the wick's integrity.

The Art of Extinguishing

Gently blow out your candle or use a snuffer to prevent hot wax from splattering. This method also protects the wick for future burns.

Wax Wisdom

Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches, and debris at all times. A clean candle is a happy candle.

Storage & Longevity

Store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to preserve their fragrance and color. When not in use, consider using a candle lid to keep dust out.

Repurposing with Purpose

Éclairée embraces sustainability. Once your candle has fully burned, repurpose the beautiful vessel. It could find new life as a planter, a holder for makeup brushes, or a chic storage solution for small treasures.

By following these candle care tips, you ensure each Éclairée candle remains a pure and elegant testament to your refined taste and environmental consciousness. Each flicker and flame is a reminder of the beauty of taking time to care, the joy of living sustainably, and the warmth of being an esteemed Éclairée Bae.
