Cocosoy candles are a popular choice for their eco-friendliness and clean burn. To get the best performance and longevity from your Cocosoy candle, follow these tips:

1. Initial Burn

  • Burn for 2-3 Hours: The first time you light your Cocosoy candle, allow it to burn long enough to create a full melt pool. This means the melted wax should reach the edges of the container. This prevents tunneling and ensures even burning in future uses.

2. Trimming the Wick

  • Keep the Wick Trimmed: Trim the wick to about 1/4 inch before each use. A properly trimmed wick prevents soot, promotes an even burn, and extends the candle’s life.
  • Remove Wick Trimmings: Ensure you remove any wick trimmings from the melt pool to avoid debris catching fire or causing uneven burning.

3. Burning Practices

  • Avoid Drafts: Burn your candle in a draft-free area. Drafts can cause uneven burning and lead to tunneling.
  • Use a Candle Snuffer: When extinguishing your candle, use a candle snuffer instead of blowing it out. This helps avoid wax splatter and reduces the amount of smoke produced.

4. Safety Measures

  • Burn Time Limit: Don’t burn your Cocosoy candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Extended burning can cause the wick to mushroom, leading to soot and excessive flame size.
  • Supervise the Flame: Never leave a burning candle unattended, and keep it out of reach of children and pets.
  • Correct Container: Ensure your candle is in a suitable holder that can withstand the heat and catch any melted wax.

5. Storage

  • Cool, Dark Place: Store your Cocosoy candle in a cool, dark place when not in use. This helps preserve the fragrance and color of the wax.

6. Maximizing Scent Throw

  • Room Size Consideration: For larger rooms, consider using multiple candles to ensure the scent fills the space adequately.
  • Allow for Scent Release: Burn the Cocosoy candle long enough to allow the fragrance to disperse, which usually means reaching a full melt pool each time.

7. Proper Disposal

  • Recycle the Container: Once the candle is finished, consider reusing or recycling the container. Cocosoy wax is easy to clean with hot, soapy water.
