Candle care cards are included with each candle purchase, and following the care instructions will help you get the most out of your candle. Always start with trimming the wick between 1/8 - 1/4 inch before lighting. This becomes harder to do with regular scissors as the candle wax level gets lower in the vessel, so its best to use long scissors that can reach the wick. Better yet, get yourself candle wick snips specially designed for this purpose. Wick snips have a round flat surface at the cutting edge to catch the snipped wick and other debris for easy disposal.
