Safety Tips

Candle Safety

I have a few guidelines to help you make the most of your candle and make sure you are safe.

  • When burning your candle for the first time please allow it to burn until the melt pool has reached the edges. This will stop the candle from tunneling, giving you the maximum amount of fragrance and a lovely clean jar you can re-use when finished.

  • Always trim your wick to 5mm before you light it. Recommended to use your candle for no more than 4 hours at a time before retrimming the wick.

  • Remember the glass jar will become hot once the candle has been lit so be careful when handling and always place on a candle plate or heatproof surface

  • Keep candle free from any foreign matter: matches, wick trimmings, etc.

  • Do not place a lid on container while burning.

  • Discontinue use when ½” of wax remains in candle container.

  • Failure to follow instructions could result in fire hazard or injury.

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets. Do no use candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Avoid drafts and excessive vibrations. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
