Candle Care and Safety

Please follow these safety tips when lighting your candle.


  • Do not burn for longer than four hours and cool for at least two hours before relighting.
  • Trim your wick to 1/8" before each burn to ensure the flame does not smoke, flicker too much, or rise too high This makes for a cleaner burn. You can use a wick trimmer, nail clippers, or scissors. 
  • Your First Burn needs to be 2-3 hours in order to achieve a full melt pool (the top layer of the wax is fully melted).  A full melt pool prevents tunneling which leads to excess wax build up on the side of your vessel.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Make sure the wick candle is completely out and the wick tip  is no longer glowing before leaving the room
  • Make sure your children or pet cannot reach your burning candles. Also, do not place your burning candles where it can be knocked over by your children or pet.
  • Place candles on a stable, heat resistant surface away from objects that can catch flame such as drapes, bedding, books, paper, clothing, decorations, and/or lose hair.
  • Keep lit  candles away from any drafts, vents, or air currents. This will help prevent rapid and uneven burning and sooting
  • Never burn your candle all the way down. Always leave 1/2 inch of wax in the bottom of the vessel. Excessive heat can cause your vessel to break. 
  • Never touch or move a burning candle when the wax is liquid. Wait until it has completely cooled down and solidified. 
  • Place burning candles at least 3 inches apart from one another to keep them from melting one another or create their own draft to keep them from burning inappropriately 
  • Never use water to extinguish our candle. Water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might break a glass container.
  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
  • Never use a candle as a night light or while you may fall asleep.
