Candle Care

You Have Your Favorite Candle. Now What? 

In General:

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended!
  • Never place near flammable objects such as curtains, walls, etc.
  • Always place on a protected, heat resistant, level surface.
  • Always clear your candle of wick trimmings, matches, or other foreign matter that could be a fire hazard.
  • Avoid walking with lit candles.
  • Trim your wick to 1/4 inch to avoid carbon build up, dark smoke, and soot.
  • Allow candle to cool before relighting or trimming.
  • Do not burn a jarred candle if chipped or cracked. 
  • Do not allow candle to burn completely down to the bottom of the container.
  • Containers may become very hot, handle with care!
  • Allow candle to cool before replacing lid on jar.
  • Burn candles for 2-3 hours to allow the flame to melt the wax to the outer edge. Burning less time will cause the candle to burn down the middle.
  • If soot builds up inside the container, simply clean with a paper towel & Windex. 
  • Remove wax from holders by running very hot water over them.
