Love Pillar Candle - Three Sizes
Get prepared: Even though a pillar candle is designed to stand on its own, it is a good idea to have something underneath it to catch wax drippings or just in case it gets bumped while burning. Find a level place to place your candle(s), away from drafts, and place it on a decorative candle plate or tray.
Trim the wick: You’ll want to trim your wick for your pillar candle just as you would for a container jar. Trim that wick from 1/8-1/4″ long. The best tool for this is a wick trimmer, but I think we’ve all used a pair of scissors or such to trim a wick.
Burn, Baby, Burn: Once you’ve lit your candle, let it burn long enough to form a full wax melt pool across the top. A general rule of thumb is you want it to burn 1 hour for every inch in diameter. So, if you have a 3″ diameter pillar, you’d want to let it burn for approximately 3 hours during that first burn to get a full wax melt pool. This will help your candle burn evenly for future burns and help deter the dreaded drowning wick.
Hug your pillar today: Pillar candles are designed to burn down from within leaving an outer shell. Part of the beauty of a pillar candle is how it glows as this process takes place. As the candle burns down within, you’ll notice the hard, outer shell is not melting but it is softening. Gently fold over this wax wall toward the center of the candle toward your flame. You’ll want to push in and down with your thumbs while the wax is warm and soft. This is called “hugging” your candle, and it allows more of the wax to be used.
Rotate: Sometimes you might notice that your pillar candle is burning unevenly. One easy trick to try is to rotate your candle 1/4 to 1/2 turn. The candle could be burning unevenly because of a draft or unevenness of the surface you have it on. By rotating the candle, you just might help it right itself.
