Is There an Optimal Flame Height?

  • The height of the flame will vary based on the size of the candle. You can see a candle height between 1/2″ to 2″ depending on the vessel used.
  • Best practice is to always trim off the ash from the wick every time you light the candle. The best height of the wick from the wax is approximately 1/4″.
  • The most important thing about your wick however is to look for soot or excess smoke. You may have a bad wick or the wrong wick for that container.
