How can I figure out my ring size to know I'm ordering the right one?
Jade: Hi @rachurq!
This is an awesome question!
Since I only have a limited amount of space here and I can't really demonstrate visually how I'd measure I'm going to let you know where you can find some great resources that'll hopefully be able to clear things up for you.
Size charts - If you search google images for ring sizing charts you'll be able to find infographics or charts that correlate your finger measurement to your ring size
String measure - You may want to google this one for more info - you essentially wrap a piece of string around your finger and then measure the string to find your size
Ring measure - you can always measure a ring that you already have that you know fits you well
Paper sizer - If you google "paper ring sizer" you should be able to find a PDF that you can print out to then use to measure your finger.
I hope this info helps! I'm definitely going to go more in-depth on this one in our blog or maybe I'll even do a segment in my Jade's 2 Scents videos!
Should I trim my candle wick EVERY time?
Jade: Hi @kayla.reumann,
For some reason, I get a lot of skepticism on this one but YES! Say it with me y'all... Trim Yo Wicks!
It's a quick and easy little way to extend the life of your candle and help it burn cleanly and efficiently. Now, who doesn't wanna get the most bang for their buck? I know I do!
Every time you go to use your candle you should make sure to trim your wicks down to about 1/4 of an inch. You don't have to be super precise, you just want to make sure that it isn't really tall, bending over, or "mushrooming" at the top. When you start with a nice trimmed wick it'll keep the flame from getting too hot and too high.
Thanks so much for your question!
Do you pick all of the new candle scents yourself?
Jade: Hi @k.marie327!
I wish I could say I do but I can't take all the credit for our amazing candle & bath bomb scents! I work with my lil candle squad (they're pretty awesome people) and as a team we sniff ALL the scents lol. We mix and match fragrances to try to bring you some really fun, unique candles each season.
