Candle TIPS & SAFETY
Candles are beautiful and fun,but it’s important to burn your candle responsibly!
TIPS and Guidlelines for safe candle burning.
Trim the wickto ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
Always keep burning candles out of reach from Children, pets, and flammable objects that could come in contact.
Place candle on flat, heat-resistant surface when burning.
Burn your candle in a draft-free room. Windows, fans can make the candle flame flicker and smoke.
Maintain plenty of air space around your candle when burning. So don’t use under a shelf, as this will decrease the amount of oxygen getting to the candle and could cause it to burn slowly, or extinguish.
Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
Make sure that everyone in the family with access to a burning candle understands these safety procedures and the dangers of open flame indoors.
DO NOT leave children and/or teenagers in an unsupervised area with a burning candle. Direct, continuous supervision by an adult is necessary.
Stop burning candle with 1/4″ wax remaining – When your candle has burned down to 1/4″ of remaining wax, we strongly suggest ordering another one of our great candles! Allowing the candle to burn too low can cause high heat, and may damage some surfaces.
Burn long enough to create a complete wax pool – Burn the candle in 2-3 hour sittings, or at a minimum long enough to allow a complete melted wax pool to form. Burning candles and extinguishing them before a complete wax pool can form will cause uneven surfaces. If this happens it can effect the candles ability to burn evenly in the next time you light it.
If candle is smoking, trim the wick – If your candle is smoking, this is normal if the wick has become too long. Extinguish the flame, let candle cool, trim the wick slightly to about 1/4 inch, and light it up again.
Do not allow the flame to touch the side of the container. If the candle flame is drifting to the side of the, put out the flame, and adjust the wick so that it is centered. Allow candle to cool, and then relight. If you allow the flame to burn against the side of the container it could overheat.
Never use water to extinguish a candle. Water can cause the hot wax to splatter..
Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
Don’t touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
