Candle Burning Tips

  • Failure to follow warning label instructions could result in fire or injury.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended and keep lit candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Never burn your candle on or near anything flammable, or for more than 3-4 hours at a time.
  • When you first light your candle, allow the wax to pool all the way to the outer edges of the container. This is called a melt pool. Allowing a full melt pool guarantees an even burn (no tunneling) and maximum fragrance throw.
  • Always burn candles on a stable, protected, heat-resistant surfaces or place on a heatproof plate.
  • The container will be hot when candle is lit.
  • Do not burn in a draft. A draft may provide more oxygen to a flame which may cause a hotter, uneven burn.
  • Before each use, trim the wick to 1/4″, and never move or re-light until flame is out and wax is completely solid. If the wick becomes too long while burning, extinguish flame before trimming.
  • Be sure to not over trim the wick. If the wick is too short it will result in too small of a flame and the melt pool will not reach the edges of the container.
  • Center the wick after each burn and do not allow trimmed wicks, matches or other objects to remain in the candle.
  • Never use container lid to put out flame. Extinguish flame with a candle snuffer, which will prevent wax from spraying.
  • Do not allow water or moisture to mix with the wax. This can cause the wax to splatter or pop.
  • Do not burn if wax level is below 1/4” from the bottom of the container.
  • Keep candles out of direct sunlight and do not store in temperatures over 80 degrees.
  • Always read all warning labels and remove any hang tags from around the candle container prior to burning.
