Candle Care

Candle care is essential to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience while using candles. Here are some tips for proper candle care:

  1. Trim the Wick:

    • Before lighting a candle, trim the wick to about 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) to prevent excessive smoking and uneven burning.
    • Trimming the wick also helps control the size of the flame and reduces the risk of soot buildup.
  2. First Burn:

    • Allow the candle to burn long enough during the first use so that the entire surface becomes liquid wax. This helps prevent tunnelling, where only the center of the candle melts.
  3. Burn Time:

    • Avoid burning candles for more than 4 hours at a time to prevent overheating.
    • Allow the candle to cool completely before relighting.
  4. Candle Holder:

    • Place candles on heat-resistant surfaces and use appropriate candle holders.
    • Keep candles away from drafts, as this can cause uneven burning and dripping.
  5. Extinguishing:

    • Use a proper candle snuffer or gently blow out the flame to extinguish the candle.
    • Avoid using the candle lid or any object to smother the flame, as it can create smoke and disturb the wax pool.
  6. Avoid Moving Candles:

    • Do not move a burning candle; wait until the wax has solidified and the candle is cool.
    • Moving a lit candle can cause wax to spill, and it may lead to accidents.
  7. Keep the Wax Pool Clean:

    • Remove any debris or matches from the wax pool to ensure a clean burn.
    • A clean wax pool helps maintain an even and steady flame.
  8. Storage:

    • Store candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat to prevent warping and color changes.
  9. Multiple Candles:

    • If burning multiple candles, leave at least 3 inches (7.6 cm) between them to prevent uneven burning.
  10. Safety Precautions:

    • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
    • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
    • Avoid placing candles near flammable materials.

Following these candle care tips will help you enjoy the ambiance and fragrance of your candles while ensuring safety and longevity.

It is very important to follow these candle care instructions. Remember that when lit the candle and container will be hot, it is advised that all candles be placed on a surface that is heat resistant, or place some type of coaster or mat beneath the candle as it burns to protect your surfaces.

When first lighting the candle please ensure that wick is trimmed to a 1/4 of an inch. and allow the candle to burn all the way to the edges, or a full melt pool. Not doing so could result in the candle not burning correctly.

Burn candle for no longer then 4 hours at a time. And trim your wick to a 1/4 of an inch prior to each and every burn session.

Never leave a candle to burn unattended. Nor place it near other flammable items as this could cause a fire.

Always keep candles out of reach of children and pets.

Stop burning the candle when there is a 1/4 inch of wax left in the bottom of your container.

Following these instructions will ensure you have a long lasting and enjoyable candle burning experience.
