Do I need to trim my wicks?
Yes, you should trim your wicks down to 1/4 of an inch between each burn to ensure that your candle does not smoke or produce soot.
Is it safe for me to burn my candle all day?
No, burning your candle for longer than 3-4 hours at a time is not recommended. You should also be sure to burn your candle on a fire-resistant surface away from drafts and pets. Do not burn your candle unattended.
Should the wax melt across the diameter of the candle on the first burn?
For some waxes, yes it should. However, Morningstar Chandlery uses a coconut wax blend that may take several burns before the wax pool melts across the entire diameter of the vessel. Any wax hang-up left around the vessel's diameter will evenatually melt on subsequent burns.

What inspired your scent names?
