Frequently Asked Questions

What is "The First Burn"?

The first time you burn a candle, it's important to allow the wax to melt all the way to the edges of the jar or container. This is known as a “candle memory,” and it helps prevent the candle from tunneling or creating a small, deep well in the center as it burns.  During The First Burn, a candle should burn one hour for every 1" in diameter of the actual candle width. For example, a candle that is 2" across should burn for 2 hours. If a candle is not burned for long enough to allow the wax to liquefy or melt from edge to edge of the container, it will create a "memory ring".

How long do TFB's candles and diffusers last?

Our candles burn 5 hours per ounce.  A small candle, 8 ounces will burn for approximately 40 ounces. Our diffuser glass is hand blown from the UK and we offer refills of the oils, so you can continue using the same glass once it’s time for a refill.  They contain 6 ounces of liquid, and our reeds we use are Dacron Diffuser Reeds which offer the latest technology in fragrance diffusers, delivering improved performance compared to standard rattan/reed sticks.  Flip the reeds once a week for the best fragrance throw.  Our customers enjoy their diffusers for 6 months+.

What can I do with my used candle vessel?

There are many ways to repurpose your beautiful vessel such as a vase on a shelf, barware, container for q-tips, makeup brushes, pens, etc., or you can plant your favorite flowers or succulents!  We also offer candle and diffuser refills for our local customers.

Are TFB's candles and diffusers safe?

At The First Burn, we use Coconut-Apricot Wax, which is gluten-free, toxin-free, paraben and phthalate-free, cruelty-free and soy-free. The entire blend utilizes only FDA-approved waxes. Our wicks are zinc-free and the natural cotton, flat braid and paper core properties offer enhanced rigidity and burning properties for natural waxes. Our vessels are made of handblown from the UK.  We offer refills for local customers so you can reuse your vessel multiple times with no waste of your current glass.

What size candle should I use for my space?

We recommend, the bigger the space, the more wicks you need to fill that space. Our small, 8 oz has 1 wick, and we recommend this for small rooms such as a bathroom or small office. For a medium bedroom, or medium size space we recommend our medium, 2 wick 15 oz candle. For a larger open area we would recommend 3 wicks or more, that would include our 32 oz 3 wick option or our 60 oz 5 wick option for a statement piece on your island or coffee table.
