Candle Care is Self Care


Before Burning

  • Keep the pool of wax free of wick trimmings and any debris at all times.
  • Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This will also help prevent possible heat damage to table surfaces.
  • Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.

While Burning

  • I know you know this, but love, never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquified.
  • Don’t burn the candle all the way down. For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is ¼ inch of wax left in the vessel.
  • If the candle self extinguishes, remove the melted wax before re-lighting.
  • If burning multiple candles, place each candle at least three inches apart from one another. This is to ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts.
  • Extinguish the candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire & Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.

After Burning

  • Do not use water to extinguish a candle, this can cause the hot wax to splatter and could break a glass container.
  • Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is completely out and there is no glow coming from the wick ember.
  • Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
