First Time Lighting Up?
Burn your candle for four hours until the wax melts across the entire surface up to the sides of vessel in order prevent tunneling, and to create an even burn for the duration of the candle’s life.
Trim Your Wick
The candle wick should always be ¼’ long to avoid mushrooming which can result in unnecessary soot. This also controls the size of the flame allowing you to get the most time out of your candle.
Keep Your Wick Centered
When you first light your candle, the wick will be centered but after multiple burns your wick can move off center, recenter it by gently holding the end and sliding it towards the middle of your jar.
Keep the Wax Clean
Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing. Use a snuffer, or dip the wick into the melted wax to extinguish your candle; do not use water to extinguish a candle, this can cause the hot wax to splatter and could break a glass container.
Keep the Doors & Windows Closed
Light your candle in a well-ventilated room, away from drafts or fans, which can cause sooting (black marks on the vessel), or rapid, uneven burning.
Get Your Money’s Worth, but Geesh.
I know you want to burn your candle down to the bottom of the wick but we strongly advise against this as the flame needs a solid base of wax to avoid overheating the candle jar.
Turn Your Lights Down Low
Store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place & avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight.
Place your candles on non-flammable, heat resistant surfaces. Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled and the wax is in a solid state. Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep.
A candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc. AND keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
