1. Light With Intention

Whether you light your candle with a moon-charged match by the Altars or a stick from a restaurant matchbook, take a second to appreciate the spark of something new. 

2. Let It Burn

Once lit, let your candle burn to the edge of its container to ensure the wax stays even.

3. Take A Short Cut

Trim before every use to avoid pooling around wicks.

4. Keep It Clean

Cover when not is use to avoid dust.

5. Reuse

When it’s all done, repurpose your candle as a vessel for plants, pencils, brushes, or matchbooks to light the next fire.
