Candle Care

  • Trim your wick to 1/4 " before lighting.  This will avoid mushrooming and smoking. Longer wicks hasten burning. If your candle begins to emit smoke, blow it out, trim the wick and relight.
  • Burn the candle for the first time for 3-4 hours. The first burn of your candle will determine how it performs for the rest of its 'candle life'. It’s important not to extinguish the candle until the pool of wax has extended across the diameter of the candle.
  • Don't burn your candle more than 4 hours at a time. After 4 hours, the candle will become too hot and begin to evaporate fragrance oil.
  • Burn your candle on a flat, fire resistant surface. Keep lit candles away from children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep a burning candle away from drafts. This is a safety measure, as well as preventing an uneven burn.
  • Use a candle snuffer or a wick dipper to extinguish the flame. Place snuffer over the flame to exhaust its supply of carbon and hydrogen to extinguish it. Or, you can use a wick dipper.
  • Use the tool to push the wick into the hot wax pool then lift it out of the wax for the next burn. DO NOT use water to extinguish flame.
  • Store your candles in a cool area with a lid or a dust cover. This keeps the fragrance locked in and the surface clean.
