Place Candlewick into Candle Mold or Glass Jar, pour melted wax into mold / Jar. Once wax hardens, candle is ready to use.
Tip: Always trim the candle wick down to around 1/4 inch or around slightly less than 1 cm. Trimming the wick is important as it will keep the candle burning without any black soot and it will give your candle a longer burn time. When the wick gets too long, it cannot draw wax all the way to the top of the wick. Therefore, the wick itself will start to burn. Even with 100% cotton wick and wax which are low or no soot, you will still see some soot if the wick starts to burn itself. However, if your candle is wide in diameter, do not trim the wick too short as a longer wick can help the candle burn efficiently and prevent tunneling in the middle of the candle.
