Candle Care + Safety

  • The first burn of your candles is the most important! Wax holds memory from the first time it is lit. We recommend burning your candle for at least 2.5 - 3 hours the first time you light it, or 1 hour for every inch of diameter of the container. If this step does not occur your candle will most likely tunnel. 
  • Never burn your candle for more than 4 hours, this will prevent carbon from forming on the wick which creates black soot on your jar.
  • Use your candle lid or a snuffer to distinguish your candle's flame to keep it burning clean and to prevent tunneling.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.

  • Follow the 2 foot rule - don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable.

  • Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans and any air currents.
  • Always trim your wick to 1/4 inch each time before you light your candle. This helps prevent the flame from getting too large and keeps your candle burning at its best! 

  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.

  • Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax.

  • Let your candle create a wax pool each time you light it. This will ensure the strongest fragrance possible! 
  • Always read and follow manufacturers' directions for use and safety, and extinguish a candle if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container.

  • Place burning candles at least 3 inches apart from one another.

  • A burning candle should not be used as a nightlight.
