Candle Care Tips

Before your first burn

- Prior to burning your candle, trim the wick to 1/8 - 1/4 inch. You can use a wick trimmer or a nail clip (yes it works!)

- Avoid drafts, vents or air currents.

- Burn for 2-3 hours each time you light the candle. This will help the candle burn evenly, and remember to trim wicks and clear the black bits before each burn.

During the Burn

- Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are leaving the room or going to bed, make sure to extinguish all candles first.

- Do not touch or move a burning candle. Do not move a candle container when the wax is melted.

- Do not burn a candle all the way down. For safety, stop burning a candle when there is about 1/4 inch of wax left in the container.

- If burning multiple candles, place each one at least three inches apart from the others to prevent them from melting each other or creating drafts.

- Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before relighting, let the candle cool, and trim the wick.

- Use extra caution when burning candles during a power outage. It is safer to use battery-powered lights like flashlights during a power failure.

- Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, bedding, carpets, books, paper, etc.

- Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets, or anyone else.

When Extinguishing

- To safely extinguish a candle, use a candle snuffer if you have one. This helps prevent hot wax from splattering.

- Do not use water to put out a candle as it can cause hot wax to splatter and potentially break a glass container.

- Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is completely out and there is no glowing ember on the wick.
