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.
