The best candle care tips

Lighting your candle
  • Prior to burning your candle, trim the wick at least 5 cm. This prevents uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
  • Avoid drafts, vents, or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.
  • The first time you burn your candle, it's very important to keep it lit until the whole surface is liquid wax, and ideally for 2-3 hours. This will help the candle burn evenly, and remember to trim wicks before each burn.
  • We recommend that after the first burn you should try to keep your candle lit for a minimum of 2 to 3 hours and never more than 4 hours.
While Burning
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping! If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquified.
  • If burning multiple candles, place each candle at least 10 cm apart from one another. This is to ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts.
  • Extinguish a 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.
  • Use extra caution when burning candles during a power outage. Battery-powered lights like flashlights are much safer sources of light during a power failure.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
When Extinguishing
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down! For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is 5 cm of wax left in the vessel.
  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle, if available, as it’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
  • 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.
