When burning your candle for the first time, make sure the wax melts all the way to the edge of the vessel. This will ensure an even burn, avoid tunneling and give your candle the optimal burn hours.
Always place your candle on a flat surface when burning to ensure melted wax does not spill. Keep your candle away from drafts and flammable items for your and your homes safety.
Make sure to always burn your candle away from the reach of children and pets. Candles can pose a risk for animals and children who may handle them without proper precautions.
Burn your candle only when you are present on the premise. Leaving unattended candles while burning can lead to fire hazards.
To ensure the best burn time for your candles, allow candles to burn for a minimum of 2 hours on each use, but never more than 4 hours. Excessive heat can cause damage to the candle vessel.
Never move your candle while burning or immediately afterwards. Hot wax can spill and cause serious harm to skin and cause damage to furniture and other surfaces.
Trim candle wick to 1/4" before each use. A properly trimmed candle will produce the best results and keep your candle looking it's best!
Never burn a candle all the way down. Stop using candle when 1/4" of the wax remains. Burning a candle to the bottom can produce extreme heat and cause the vessel to shatter.
