You thought it might be as easy as just lighting your candle up... well... it's a bit more complex than that!
Did you know that the first burn of a candle is the most important?
The first time you light your candle, you have to let it burn long enough!!!!!!! The whole top layer of the wax has to become liquid and that takes several hours depending on the size of your candle.
If you do not do this, then your candle will not burn evenly.
