Candle Care

BASIC CANDLE CARE TIPS

  • The first time you light your candle, make sure there is a full melt pool for an even burn. A full melt pool means the wax has been heated long enough to reach the edge of the container and will burn evenly down through the candle for optimal diffusion.
  • Remove dust and fingerprints from your candle by gently rubbing the surface with a tissue.
  • Never use a sharp object to remove wax drippings from your vessel or lid, as it will scratch.
  • Always store your candles flat in a cool, dark, and dry place. It is recommended to store candles in 65-70°F.
  • Optimal burn time is 2-3 hours, no more than four. This ensures that there is a full melt pool and no wax buildup at the edge of the vessel. Avoid drafty areas.
  • Do not use lid to extinguish, simply blow out or use a candle snuffer.
  • WARNING: BURN CANDLE WITHIN SIGHT. NEVER BURN UNATTENDED. NEVER BURN ON OR NEAR ANYTHING THAT CAN CATCH FIRE. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN AND PETS.

CANDLE SAFETY RULES

  •  Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning and dripping.
  • Always use a candle-holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
  • Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
  •  Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  •  Always read and follow the manufacturer’s use and safety instructions carefully. Don’t burn a candle longer than the manufacturer recommends.
  •  Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting. Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.
