candle wick, extinguish your candle, trim and relight as
this mushrooming may cause your candle to produce smoke.

not allow the flame to touch the side of the jars, as it may
become hot. Handle carefully.
•Minimize the wax left on the sides by burning the candle
until the wax pool reaches the edge of the jar. It’s normal
for some wax to remain, and the amount varies per color,
fragrance and burning environment.

Q: Why do your candles have a black fume towards the end
of the candle life?
A: According to the EPA, a small stable flame has a lower
emission rate of black smoke than a larger flickering flame
that burns with visible black particles. Air around the
burning candle causes this to happen. This is why candles in
glass jars cause more soot -- as the candle burns down the
needed oxygen reduces. Additionally, black smoke occurs when
blowing out the flame and not cutting off the tip of the
wick. This can cause the candle to smolder. Smoldering
candles create smoke that contains unburned particulate
