Make sure that you burn your candle so that the melted wax goes all the way to the edges to prevent tunnelling.
Never burn you candle for then 4 hours. If you burn for more than 4 hours you then risk the potential of the jar combusting. All Torched Candle Co jars and container are heat treated and should be fine if you burn a little longer.
Always trim your wick. The ash that is created can effect the burn time and whether or not the candle will light.
