There is a proper way to burn candles.
You may have assumed it would be as simple as lighting your candle, but it's actually a little more difficult than that! Did you know that a candle's first burn is the most crucial?
You must allow your candle to burn sufficiently long the first time you light it! Depending on the size of your candle, it may take several hours for the entire top layer of wax to become liquid. Your candle will not burn evenly if you don't do this.
