Candle Care

Before Burning

  • Before burning your candle, trim the wick to 1/4 inch and remove the snipped wick. A candle trimmer is a great tool to use, or you can use scissors. 
  • Place your candle on a dishwasher safe plate or hot pad to protect your surface. 

While Burning

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping.
  • Never touch a candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquified. 
  • Stop burning candle when 1/4 wax remains.
  • Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc
  • Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets.

When Extinguishing

  • Use a candle extinguisher if available. 
  • Do not spray water on the candle, this can cause the wax to splatter. 
  • Make sure the flame is out and the wick is not glowing before leaving the room.
  • Lightly place the top on the candle, do not screw the top on, just place on top to stop air flow to the candle, this will ensure the candle is completely out.
  • Do not move  the candle until wax is solidified.
