Candle Care + Safety

Warning - To Prevent Fire or Serious Injury

  • Burn within site on a level, heat-resistant surface and away from drafts.
  • Keep out of reach of children, pets and flammable materials.
  • Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours the first time and no longer than 2 to 3 hours at a time during subsequent burns.
  • Keep your candle in a dry and temperature controlled environment, between 60 and 80° F to avoid moisture settling into wax.
  • Keep candle free of foreign materials including wick trimmings.
  • Allow wax to solidify before relighting.
  • Glass jar will be hot when candle is lit.
  • Stop burning candle when only 1/2" of solid wax remains at the bottom.
  • Extinguish a candle if it smokes or the flame becomes too high or acts erratically.
  • Extinguish the candle if the wood wick starts producing excess noise outside of the normal light crackling sound. It means it is time for your candle to rest.
  • To get the most out of your candle, let it burn until almost the entire surface of the candle melts.  The first three burns, your candle may not burn all the way to the edge, but should catch up starting with the fourth burn.
  • To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time during the first three burns of the candle and 2 to 3 hours at a time during the remaining burns.
  • Trim wick to 1/8" to 1/4″ before lighting for the first time.
  • Trim wick to 1/8" prior to lighting each time after the first burn.
  • If the wick is too short or long, the wax will not pull up the wick and the wick will extinguish.
  • Replacement wood wicks are available for purchase if you accidentally cut your wick too short.
  • To ensure an even burn, light the flame across the entire length of the wood wick, not on just one corner.
