In order to make the most of your candle, it is important to let it burn the right amount of time.          (neither to short, neither too long) The ideal burning time may vary in function of candles sizes/ models. The rule is to  always let burn the candle until the whole surface becomes liquid this will avoid the candles to hollow and preserve its exceptional quality ( it will take a long time of first burning when the wax is harder)

But ones the whole service becomes liquid do not le burn more that around extra hour. The amount of liquid wax should never be beyond 2 cm high. A wick leaning and burning against the glass could likely cause the blasting of it! 

Little tip: There are four sizes of AMBERSEA candles and they should be used differently. A small candle up to 10 cm will be liquid shortly, it is perfect to light up for 2 to 3 hours but it cannot burn longer!

A super big candles can be burn a way longer time without any risk, but it cannot be lighted for a very short period otherless it will hollow.
