What's the best way to burn your candle?
First. Unbox that baby and take it all in. Remove the lid and set it aside. Take in a big breath and enjoy those luscious notes that will take you to the next level.
Second. Grab your phone and set a timer for either 3 or 4 hours. (Once that alarm goes off you'll remember to blow out your candle. We all know we can all be forgetful at times. It's better to be safe than sorry.)
Third. Trim the wick to about 1/4 inch or so. Place the candle on a level, fire-resistant surface away from flammable materials, kids, pets, and drafts.
**If you would like to set an intention before lighting, please do so! Grab some chalk and write it on the candle!
Fourth. Grab the hemp wick that came in the box with the candle. Ignite the hemp wick and use it to light the cotton wick in the middle of the candle (you may also use the hemp wick for a sesh with some plant medicine...your choice). Extinguish the hemp wick (this hemp wick bundle will come in handy when the candle is half full).
Fifth. Enjoy the aroma & vibe that your candle creates!
Final Step. Wait for your alarm to sound and gently extinguish your candle. Repeat when you need to #lightyourvibe.
