2. First Burn Vibes

Picture this: your candle is lit, the mood is set, and magic is in the air. Well, the first burn is crucial to keep that magic alive. Let your candle dance for a few hours during its debut. This "memory burn" prevents tunneling in the future, ensuring your candle burns like a superstar every time.
