Light up responsibly.

While candles are completely safe, it’s important that you enjoy them responsibly, taking extra care to avoid accidental injury or fire damage. We recommend you follow these guidelines carefully when burning your candles…

 

  • NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED.
  • Always trim your wicks to ¼” before (re)lighting your candle. Never trim a wick (or cover a candle) that’s still hot.
  • On your initial lighting, allow the candle to create a burn pool (melted wax) that fills the vessel across the entire candle - edge to edge. This may take 1.5-2 hours.
  • Each time you relight your candle, only allow the candle to burn up to 4 hours. Letting a candle burn longer may result in high flames, extremely hot vessel temperature (cracking/shattering), and possibly even sputtering of wax (however, uncommon).

  • Always burn your candle on a heat-resistant surface, free of drafts/vents, and away from other objects (at least 3 inch clearance around candle) and combustible items.

  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.

  • Always keep wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and other debris.

  • To avoid accidental wax spills or burns, never move or touch a candle when it’s melted (liquid form). Always wait for the wax to cool (and solidify again) before moving your candle or covering it.

  • Never use water to extinguish a candle - blow gently or use a candle snuffer.

  • Make sure that candle is fully extinguished and the wick ember is no longer glowing before walking away from your candle.

  • KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND PETS.
