Candle Care

We want you to be safe and to keep your candles burning beautifully for a long time.

Here are a few suggestions on how to enjoy and take care of your candles:

Always keep the wicks centered in the melted wax, and regularly trim to ¼” tall… a quick trim between each lighting is best.  A wick trimmer makes this super easy, especially when reaching into a narrow container.

The first burn is always the most important. Be sure to allow the wax to melt completely to the insides of the container before extinguishing – this will help prevent “tunneling”.

Avoid burning any candle more than 3 – 4 hours at a time. Blow them out and allow them to cool before the next relighting.

Using a wick dipper is the easy, smoke-free way to extinguish your candle. It’s a very simple tool that dips the flame into melted wax and pulls it back up – making the candle ready for its next lighting. 

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Don’t burn a candle on or near anything that could catch on fire.

Keep candles out of the reach of children and away from pets.

Know when it’s time to dispose of your candle … you should stop using a candle when only ½” of wax remains in the container.

Be sure to place all of your candles on a stable, heat-resistant surfaces before lighting.  For candles in metal containers, like our travel tin, use a cork or stone coaster.  Metal tin containers typically get hotter than other containers.

Keep your candles’s wax pool clear of wick trimmings and debris – including burnt/spent matches.

Avoid air drafts near your candles – they can cause sooting and uneven burning.

Don’t move or touch a burning candle.

Burn candles in well-ventilated rooms/areas.

Never fall asleep to candlelight.

Be sure to extinguish the candle’s flame and let it cool if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly.

Enjoy our candles – and be safe all of the time!  Think candle safety first!
