Candle Care and Safety
Always trim wicks to 1/4 inch before lighting. We suggest using a wick trimmer.
Burn at least 2-3 hours for first use to prevent tunneling, then no more than 3 hours at a time. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/4 inch of wax remains in the container.
Follow the 2-foot rule - don't place a burning candle within 2 feet of clothing, books, curtains, or anything flammable.
Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax.
Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans, and any air currents.
Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room, before going to sleep, or if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container.
