Candle care and safety

Taking care of a candle isn't tricky, but a few more tips won't hurt. Please be safe.

  1. Always keep candles in a cool, dark, and dry place.

  2. When lighting your candle for the first time, burn until the wax melts across the entire surface to the edge of the tin/container. This prevents tunneling and allows the candle to create an even burn for the life of the candle. It may take 2 hours to achieve a full wax pool.

  3. Trim your wick before each burn to promote an even burn, steady flame and limit sooting and mushrooming of the wick. Failure to burn within recommend time will result in overheating of candle jar and failure to trim wick will result in overheating the candle jar.

  4. Keep the candle wax free of wick trims, matches or debris at all times. Never leave a burning candle on or near anything that can catch on fire such as: furniture, drapes, books, paper, or other flammable material.

  5. Keep your candle out of drafts so that you increase burn time, prevent uneven burning, diminished scent throw and accidental fire.

  6. Don't burn too many of your candles in a small room or in a tight home where the space is not well ventilated.

  7. Never leave a candle unattended around children, pets, and drafts. Allow the candle to completely cool before handling. Extinguish candle before leaving home or going to sleep.

  8. Replace the cap on your candle after it's completely cooled down from a burn, to help keep the cold throw and keep dust from collecting on top of your candle. Dust can be a fire hazard.
