Before Burning

Prior to burning your candle, the first thing you want to do is make sure your wick is the proper length. Trim the wick at least ¼ inch. This prevents uneven burning, dripping or flaring.We recommend using a wick trimmer since it creates a nice clean cut that maintains the integrity of the wick.  We recommend only trimming wicks on cooled candles, to prevent debris from falling into hot wax.

Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.

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

During Candle Burn

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

Never touch or move a burning candle nor move a candle container when the wax is liquified.

For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is ¼ inch of wax left in the vessel. Don’t burn a candle all the way down.

When burning multiple candles, place each candle at least three inches apart from one another in order to ensure they do not melt into one another, or create their own drafts.

Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.

Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire such as for example furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, 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.

Use a candle tray to ensure the wax melt into a safe space. You can Shop candle tray on our website here. 

When Extinguishing

Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle, if available, as it’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.

Do not use water to extinguish a candle, this can cause the hot wax to splatter and could break a glass container.

Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is completely out and there is no glow coming from the wick ember.

Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
