Candle Safety

Please print this page and keep it for reference.

  1. Always trim wick to 1/4" before lighting candle.
  2. Always keep wax free from foreign objects.
  3. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  4. Always burn candles on a heat resistant surface. Candle containers and holders may become hot.
  5. Keep candles out of direct sunlight. It can fade colors and cause irregular melt.
  6. If a candle burns unevenly, it is in a draft. Rotate the candle 90 degrees periodically to keep burning uniform, or move to another location.
  7. With pillar candles, only burn for a few hours, careful not to let the whole top become liquefied. This helps keep the sides intact and allows the candle to have a much longer burn time.
  8. Burning candles no longer than 4 to 5 hours at a time will increase total burn time.
  9. Container candles (tins, votives in holders, etc.) should be burned 1 hour for each inch of diameter. This allows the wax pool to cover the entire surface, and extends the burning time.
  10. Never place your candle directly on furniture. Always use a non-flammable stand or plate.
  11. Do not place candles in the freezer for any reason.
  12. Votive candles must be in a container. They are made of a low melt wax. The tighter the fit, the longer the candle will burn.

As with any handmade product, no two candles are exactly alike in size and shape.

Please burn your candles!! Candles look best while they are being burned. The glow of a beautiful candle, whether it is scented or not, warms your room and your heart!!
