Candle Care & Safety

To optimize your candle burning experience & help prolong the life of your candle, we recommend these guidelines:

  • Upon first use, burn for at least two hours, or until the entire surface has turned to liquid wax.
  • Trim wick to 1/4” before each lighting. This will maintain an even and clean burn.
  • Burn for no more than 3-4 hours at a time.
  • Choose an area away from drafts, open-air vents or ceiling fans. This will help avoid rapid burning and prevent flare-ups.


  • Always keep candles in sight when in use. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire such as furniture, drapes, books, paper, flammable materials, etc.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.
  • Candle, container and/or wax can become hot when in use.
  • Always burn the candle on a stable, heat resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
  • Keep out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Keep wax pool free from the wick and other debris at all times.
  • Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
  • Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, align and trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
  • Never burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the container.
  • Extinguish candle carefully, allow it to cool completely before touching or moving.
  • We recommend use of a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. Never use water as it can cause the wax to splatter or glass to break.

Always read and follow the manufacturer’s use and safety instructions carefully.
