The ritualistic burning of sage can clear negative energies and bring in the good stuff. The sage in this candle carries with it salt breezes from the Adriatic — a scent that alleviates stress and promotes a sense of well-being.
When burning your candle for the first time, allow it to burn for 2 to 3 hours (but never more than 4), until the top layer of the wax has completely melted. This will prevent the wax from tunneling around the wick. Ideally, we recommend keeping the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times to prevent the candle from emitting smoke or the wick falling into the wax. After each burn, see that the wick is centered in the wax. This will also ensure that the glass does not overheat. The wick and flame should never be touching the glass.
