General Safety for any candle:
- Never leave a burning candle unattended!
- Do not place near flamable objects such as curtains, walls, etc.
- Place on a protected, heat resistant, level surface.
- Keep candles free of wick trimmings, matches, or other foreign matter that could be a fire hazard.
- Avoid walking with lit candles.
- Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times to avoid carbon build up on the wick , dark smoking and soot in
the air and on walls or furniture.
- Allow candle to cool before trimming wick or relighting.
- To avoid glass containers shattering: Do not burn a candle in a container that is chipped or cracked.
Do not allow candles to burn completely down to the bottom of container, stop about 1/2 inch short. Do not allow flame
to touch sides of container.
- Containers may become very hot, handle with care!
- Allow candles to cool before replacing lid on jars.
- Container candles & votive containers should be set in a wire holder or on a trivet to protect service
from heat. Hot candle jars can damage furniture.
- All candles from time to time will produce some smoke and soot, but proper burning (keeping wick trimmed and
avoiding drafts, etc.)will help eliminate this problem.
- Burn candles 1 hour for each inch of it's diameter. This allows the flame time to melt the wax to the outer
edge. Burning less time will cause the candle to core burn (tunnel) down the middle & shorten burn time.
- Keep wick trimmed to 1/4" .Candles will fade if left in direct sunlight or spotlights
for extended periods of time.
- To extinguish a candle, use a candle snuffer, or hold fingers in front of the flame and blow. This will prevent
hot wax from splattering on furniture.
