Trim your wick to 0.25”
Trimming your wick is important for so many reasons - the most important being that your candle will burn properly.
You can trim your S&O candle using a wick trimmer, scissors or nail cutter. We recommend trimming to 3/16th of an inch (0.25”). Wood wicks perform best when they are closer to the wax.
Re-trim your wick before every use, not just the first time you light your candle. Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris.
Burn for at least 2 hours
When you light your candle for the first time, be sure to let it burn for 2 - 4 hours, or until the wax has melted to the edge of the jar (full melt pool). If you do not do this, your candle will tunnel. Tunnelling means that the wick is burning straight down the centre of the candle without creating a full melt pool within 2 - 4 hours of being lit.
If a full melt pool has not occurred after 4 hours, don't worry. Extinguish the candle, allow it to cool and try again. Wood wick candles need a lot of tending to, for an enjoyable experience.
You can also use a spoon or chopstick to scoop unmelted wax into the wax pool.
The more you burn your candle, the more the wax melts. A full melt pool would have been achieved when you’ve burned your candle half way through.
Stop burning after 4 hours or when your candle has achieved a full melt pool
Once your candle has burned for 4 hours, extinguish it. Do not burn longer than this time to maximize the full benefit of your S&O candle and to keep the glass jar from getting too hot. Relight it once the candle has cooled.
Pay attention to your candle
Never ever leave your candle unattended, especially if you have pets or kids
Never burn your candle close to anything that is flammable
Never use a candle as a night light
Never extinguish candles with water
Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room
Safety instructions are on the bottom of your S&O candle. Please read and follow them carefully
Stop burning when there’s only 1/2” of wax left
Once 1/2” of the wax is left, don’t burn any longer. This prevents the candle from overheating and damaging the surface below it. Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes or the flame becomes too high.
Our candles are quite the sensory experience and we understand if you just can't get enough. However, there's only so much wax to burn. Our wick clips keep the flame at safety height above the bottom of the candle jar. This is in place to reduce the risk of overheating at the end of the candles life.
Reuse or return your candle jar
When you are done burning your candle, remove the remaining wax and wash your jar with soap and warm water. Voila! You now have a new mini terrarium, makeup brush holder, propagation jar or whiskey glass. Whatever your preferences, you can reuse the jar to your hearts content.
Can’t find any use for it? No worries, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to send us the empty jar intact and you would get 10% off your next order.

Zen Candle - Chinotto, Palo Santo, Sage and Cedarwood
Seventh and Oak candles were the perfect gift to give to someone! Myself and the person who I bought the candles for can both agree that the scents in the set filled the room with warmth and felt so cozy! Definitely would purchase these candles again!
Thank you so much for your review, Emery!
This candle is amaZen!
Usually I choose which candle to light based on what I’m in the mood for. Sometimes when I just can’t decide, I invariably choose a Seventh & Oak candle. The entire Wellness collection has been well thought-out from materials to scents to packaging. Each candle’s description provides a guide for use, and my experience with Zen has been personally therapeutic: I burn it in a small room, walk in from time to time, inhale deeply and feel the peace and calm wash over me. Ahhh!
You are just so awesome, Tammy! Thank you for your review.
A friend bought me this candle, and it was the first one I burned in my new home! Such a joy to have this "Zen" as I unpacked.

Wood Wick vs Cotton Wick - What's the Difference?
Wood wicks have been used in candles for only a few years, but they are quickly becoming the preferred choice of consumers.
In love with S&O candles, especially the Asana scent! We use it in our massage studio and everyone enjoys it. Also addicted to the Campfire scent! We’ve gone through over 25 jars in the past year. We’re in love with S&O candles THAT much!
