Did you know your first burn of your candle is the most important burn of all?
The first burn establishes the candles "memory" and determines how well the candle will perform throughout its use. The memory burn in the candle sets a pattern made by the candle wax on its first lighting and marks the edge of where each future burns will reach.
Therefore, we highly recommend for the first burn, that the melted wax pool reaches the edges of your vessel with at least 1cm deep before extinguishing. The candles needs to stay burning for approximately 2-3 hours (depending on the size of your vessel ) for the first time you burn it.
By not allowing the wax pool to reach the edge on its first burn, a small memory ring will be formed and tunnelling will begin.
