Candles add warmth and ambiance to any space, but it’s crucial to prioritize safety when using them. Follow these essential guidelines to ensure a worry-free candle-burning experience. Remember, a little caution goes a long way in preventing accidents and maintaining the longevity of your favorite candles.
NEVER LEAVE CANDLES UNATTENDED
It’s important to never leave a burning candle unattended. This includes leaving it burning while you’re sleeping.
TRIM YOUR WICK
Before each burn, ensure your candle’s wick is no more than a quarter of an inch. This helps to prevent soot, but keeps the flame manageable and your container from becoming too hot.
FOUR HOURS MAX
When burning your candles, do not burn them continuously for more than four hours at a time. This will prevent overheating and prolong your candle’s life.
KEEP THE WAX FREE OF DEBRIS
Wick trimmings and other debris left in your candle can drift toward the flame as the wax melts and can ignite.
BURN ON HEAT-RESISTANT SURFACES
As your candle burns, the container can become hot to the touch. Keeping it on a stable, burn-resistant surface protects your home and prevents unsightly burn marks.
KEEP AWAY FROM DRAFTS
Drafts can cause the flame of your candle to burn against the glass, increasing the likelihood of a cracked container.
KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND PETS
We love our families! Care for them and your candles by keeping them away from any flames or hot wax.
STOP NEAR THE BOTTOM
As you finish your candle, you never want to burn the last 1/4 to 1/2 inch of wax. The small pool of leftover wax prevents overheating and protects from a broken container. Once at the bottom, you can use any remaining wax in a warmer.
