Candle Safety

 

Please burn candles responsibly to ensure their safe use

 

  • Remove all packaging before lighting.
  • Place on a protected, heat-resistant, dry surface, away from anything that can catch fire, and out of reach of children and pets. Use holders designed for the particular candle style.
  • Keep wick(s) trimmed to 1/4 of an inch or less at all times.
  • If smoking occurs, blow candle out. Trim wick(s), remove trimmings, and relight.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, or any combustible material. Keep the wick centered.
  • Avoid burning candles in drafts.
  • Never leave burning candles unattended. Keep them within sight at all times.
  • Keep all matches and lighters out of the reach of children.
  • Teach everyone in the family the rules of safe candle use.

Glass Jar and Container Candles

  • Please handle glass containers with care. Avoid glass-to-glass contact when removing or replacing the lid. Do not use if the jar is cracked, chipped, or scratched.
  • Do not refill with wax.
  • Do not allow the flame to touch the side of the jar. The jar may become hot. Handle carefully.
  • If smoking occurs, check for drafts or high traffic areas, which may cause flame to flicker and smoke. Also, be sure that the wick is no longer than 1/4". If it is, extinguish, trim to 1/4" or less, and relight.
  • To minimize wax left on the sides of the jar, burn your candle for 3 hours at a time. It is normal for a small amount of wax to be left. The amount may vary by color, fragrance, and burning conditions.
  • For Cork Top Jars, keep the cork top away from all flames and Do NOT use is it as a candle/candle flame extinguishing tool.
  • Prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface by discontinuing use when 1/2" of wax remains at the bottom of the jar. Only burn in a suitable holder, or on a plate or other fire- and heat-resistant
  • Extinguish carefully before replacing the lid.

 

Pillar Candles

  • When wax pool reaches the candle's edge, extinguish flame and allow candle to harden before relighting. This will prevent dripping.
  • Discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains at the bottom of the container.
  • Never place directly on furniture. Only burn in an appropriate holder.

 

Votive and Scented Tea Light Candles

  • Do not burn in an enclosed space like a potpourri pot
  • If wick smokes or builds up carbon, extinguish flame and remove the carbon before relighting.
  • Burn only in an appropriate holder. Do not burn freestanding.
