Burning Tips

Burning & Safety Tips

  • Always place candles on non-combustible, heat resistance surface.
  • Keep burning candles away from flammable objects and keep any debris, such as match parts or trimmed wick, out of the candle.
  • Avoid drafts and high traffic zones, a draft will cause the flame to flicker which produces soot and a dripping candle.
  • Keep wick trimmed to inch above the wax surface, trim the wick if smoking occurs. Extinguish the flame before trimming the wick
  • Burn wider diameter candles for longer periods of time, usually the one hour per inch in diameter rule applies.
  • For pillars, plan on burning 3-4 hours on initial lighting and a minimum of 2-3 hours each subsequent use to ensure a clean and efficient burn.
  • When relighting a partially burned taper candle, never straighten the wick. It should remain curved to burn properly.
  • Extinguish candles by carefully dipping the wick into the liquid wax with an instrument that will not catch fire. Once the flame is extinguished straighten and center the wick.
  • Never allow candles to freeze, it will crack them.
  • Avoid direct sunlight or prolonged exposure to strong lighting and ultraviolet light as it will fade the color of the candle.
  • Keep candles away from children and pets.
