Candle Care & Safety
Recommendations and safety measures to fully enjoy your candle experience.
Cotton Wick: Always trim wick to 1/4" prior to each lighting. Keeping your candle wick at the proper length prior to each burn assists with preventing soot and extends the life of the candle.
Wood Wick: Make sure your wick is trimmed to 1/8" prior to each lighting. If your wick is too long, it may cause performance issues.
First Lighting: The first time you light your candle, let it burn for 3-4 hours to allow the melted wax to reach the edge of the container (a full melt pool) to prevent your candle from tunneling.
Burning Candle: Always burn candles within sight and keep away from children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Candles should not be burned for more than four hours at a time. Extinguish candle before going to sleep. Discontinue burning candle when approximately 1/4" of wax remains in the container.
Extinguishing Candle: Gently blow out or use a candle snuffer to extinguish flame.
Trimming Wick: When candle is unlit and wax is cooled, use scissors, a wick trimmer, or your pinched fingers to trim the wick. If using your fingers, a tissue helps when you pinch the tip of the wick off to catch the spent wick debris.
Never drop used matches or any other items/debris in the candle.
Burn candle on a stable, fire & heat resistant surface. Never place a burning candle on a surface that could be damaged by oil or heat or is flammable.
Keep candles clear of curtains or anything near that could ignite. Do not burn candles in/near a draft.
Never move a burning candle. Before moving, allow the candle to cool and wax to solidify. The candle vessel/jar and wax become extremely hot during use.
