Candle Care and Safety
Removing all wrappings, ribbons and tags before burning your new candle will prevent accidental fires.
The first time you burn your new candle, it is recommended that you allow it to burn until the melt pool reaches the outer edge of the jar. On average, it can take one hour per inch of the candle's diameter. A complete first burn will allow your candle to establish a memory burn, and thus optimize it's scent throw and burn life. If a correct memory burn is not established on the first lighting, the candle will likely tunnel burn, greatly reducing scent throw, burn life and will also waste much of the wax.
Before relighting, trim the carbon ball at the top of the wick, making sure no trimmings are left in the wax. Keeping the wicks trimmed will prevent smoking, soot and high flame.
Candles left near drafty areas can cause smoking and will also cause your candles to burn unevenly and may present a fire hazard.
Storing candles in a cool, dry place will prevent fading and fragrance loss.
It's always a safe practice to burn candles on protected, non-flammable, heat resistant surfaces, and to never burn them on, in or near anything flammable.
Extinguishing candles by gently blowing them out or using a candlesnuffer is the best method. Putting the lid back on the jar while burning or using water to put candles out are highly unadvisable.
To prevent heat damage or fire, discontinued use of your candle is recommended when only 1/2" of wax remains in the bottom of the container.
Candle containers may become hot while burning; therefore it is not safe to move them while burning or while the wax is still cooling.
Please keep burning and cooling candles out of reach of children and pets.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
