Candle Care & Safety
We take great pride in making our candles with the highest quality ingredients and materials available and want you to get the most enjoyment and use out of them. Because of that, and to ensure their safe use, please follow these guidelines to keep our products a bright and beautiful part of your life.
General Candle Safety and Burning
- Place on a protected, heat-resistant, dry surface, away from anything that can catch fire,
- Keep out of reach of children and pets.
- Never leave burning candles unattended. Keep them within sight at all times.
- Always burn your candle in a draft-free area. Drafts (ceiling fans, A/C vents, windows, etc.) will make the candle flame flicker and smoke.
- Ensure that there is enough air space around your candle. Do not burn under a shelf, as this will inhibit the amount of oxygen that is getting to the wick of the candle and can cause the candle to not burn properly.
- If smoking occurs, extinguish candle, trim wick, remove trimmings, and relight.
- Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, or any other combustible materials.
- Teach everyone in the family the rules of safe candle use.
- Extinguish candle before replacing the lid on containers. It may be hazardous to continuously use the lid to snuff out the candle. It will also cause the trapped smoke to absorb into the melted wax and discolor the candle as well as alter the scent of the candle.
- Prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface by discontinuing use when 1/2″ of wax remains. Burning past this point can present a fire hazard.
Wood Wick Care
- The first burn is the most important. Burn in 2 to 4 hour increments. Your first burn should last 60 plus minutes so the wax can melt evenly. An uneven wax pool can drown the wick & cause problems lighting it. To preserve longevity of the scent in the candle, do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time.
- Keep your wood wick trimmed short (between 1/8 and 1/4") and free of charred bits. Most problems with wooden wick candles can be solved by trimming the wick.
