Maintaining A Traditional Beeswax Candle
Trim the wick before, during and after each burn to a quarter of an inch, slightly longer for tapered candles.
As the candle burns down, gently thumb in the melted wax inwards, to contain the wax pool.
To extinguish, smartly press the wick into the wax pool. This will not only ensure the absence of smoke but will re-coat the wick for the next lighting.

Beeswax has been used as a household aid for centuries; poured into gaps in wooden floors to prevent squeaking, rubbed on draws for an easier glide, drawn onto saw blades to prevent binding and rust, and even on metal zippers.
Bees Wax Works candles are best burned in a draft free environment, to ensure a dripless candle.
