Husky, how much wick do you leave at the top of the oil to light? When the oil tips a bit, or when it sits, does the wick just absorb enough of the oil to burn but not too much? I really want to have this skill down, and I know this sounds so very dumb to ask, but I want to get it right. Does the candle do a lot of smoking when it is burned? I like that it is contained in a glass jar for safety. It would have to sit well out of reach of children, but then, don’t all candles? It is just – if it tips over for some unknown reason…the oil won’t burn on it’s own, will it? It doesn’t when it is in the jar, so I can’t see how it would if it got spilled.
