General Candle Safety and Burning

  • Never leave burning candles unattended. Keep them within sight at all times.
  • Always burn your candle in a draft-free area. Any draft (ceiling fans, A/C vents, windows, etc.) will Place on a protected, heat-resistant, dry surface, away from anything that can catch fire, and out of remake the candle flame flicker and smoke.
  • Ensure that there is enough air space around your candle. Do not burn under a shelf, as this will inhibit the amount of oxygen that is getting to the wick of the candle and can cause the candle to not burn properly.
  • Use holders designed for the particular candle style.
  • Keep wick trimmed to 1/4” at all times.
  • If smoking occurs, extinguish candle, trim wick, remove trimmings, and relight.
  • Keep the wick centered.
  • Keep the wax pool, free of wick trimmings, matches, or any other combustible materials.
  • Teach everyone in the family the rules of safe candle use.

Jar Candles

  • Handle jar candles with care; glass containers are fragile.
  • Discontinue use if the jar is cracked, chipped or broken.
  • Do not refill with wax.
  • Do not allow the flame to touch the side of the jar.
  • The jar may become hot. Handle carefully.
  • If smoking occurs, check for drafts or high traffic areas, which may cause flame to flicker and smoke.
  • Be sure that the wick is no longer than 1/4″. If it is, extinguish, trim to 1/4″, and relight.
  • To minimize wax left on the sides of the jar, burn 3 hours at a time; it is normal for some wax to be left. The amount will vary per color, fragrance and burning conditions.
  • Prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface by discontinuing use when 1/2″ of wax remains. Burning past this point can present a fire hazard and cause the glass to break.
  • Extinguish candle before replacing the lid.
