Candle Care

Follow these tips to have the best possible experience while using your candles.



Before Burning

  • Prior to burning your candle, trim the wick at least ¼ inch. This prevents uneven burning, dripping or flaring.

  • 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. Learn more about burning time here.


While Burning

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first.

  • Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquified.

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

  • If burning multiple candles, place each candle at least three inches apart from one another. This is to ensure they don’t melt 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.

  • Use extra caution when burning candles during a power outage. Battery-powered lights like flashlights are much safer sources of light during a power failure.

  • 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 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.


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.
