Always burn your votive in a votive holder. We have recently changed our votive wick to a hemp wick which has been primed with beeswax. This is a larger wick and puts off a nice big bright flame and burns through the beeswax well.
You want to keep an eye on your burning votive. On occasion, if the flame is really large, or you can see a big ball on the end of the wick, blow out the candle and trim the wick.
Using a long lighter, relight your votive and you should get hours more of that nice big bright flame!
When you first light your pillar, you need to burn the candle 1 hour for every inch of width. For example, a 3"x 3", or 3" x 4" pillar, you want to burn for at least three hours per burning session. With the 2"x 3.5" or 2"x 4.5" you want to burn for at least 2 hours per session. If trouble relighting, make sure wick is trimmed pretty short, take your lighter and push it gently into the wick, this breaks up the wick fibers and your candle should light right up! This candle needs a hug!
Burning tealights is super simple. You burn them right in their little plastic cup. Even though they have a small wick, if you don't burn through the whole tealight in one session trim the wick before trying to relight.
Place your tealight in a candle holder and watch how much beautiful light they put out!
