Candle Care & Safety Instructions:

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Keep the burning candle in your sight at all times.
  • Avoid burning candles near any drafts, doing so will cause rapid and uneven burning and excessive dripping.
  • Trim the wick to 1/4 inch before you light the candle
  • Never burn a candle near anything that could catch fire.
  • Burn candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, linens, carpets, books, paper and flammable decorations.
  • Keep hair and loose clothing away from burning flame.
  • Avoid burning candles near combustible materials.
  • Do not burn for more than two hour increments and trim the wick in between each burn.
  • Always store candles in a cool, dark, dry place. They should be stored flat to prevent warping.
  • Always keep wicks trimmed to one-half inch. Long or crooked wicks cause uneven burning and dripping.
  • Candles will fade if left in the light for an extended period of time. Never put candles in a window or directly expose them to bright outdoor light or indoor spotlights.
  • Candles should always be burned in proper candle-holders or bases and should be a minimum of two and half inches apart from each other when burning outside a holder.
  • If you plan to use your candles in close proximity to other items, fabrics, materials or decor we recommend not burning/lighting them and using them for display purposes only. 
  • Extinguish candles with a candle snuffer.
  • Extinguish the candle if the flame becomes too high or begins to flicker repeatedly
  • If a wick becomes too short to light, carve away enough wax to expose the fresh wick, then trim ¼” off the top of the candle and burn the candle to reform its appearance.
  • Never use the candle as a night light or while you may fall asleep
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches 
  • Do not place tapers on to sconces with a pin base, this may crack the base of the candle
