Candle Burning Tips

Tip 1:  Never leave a burning candle unattended! 

Tip 2:  Do not place candles near flammable objects such as curtains, walls, etc.  Keep candle free of wick trimmings, matches or other foreign matter that could be a fire hazard. 

Tip 3:  Keep burning candles on a level surface and out of reach from children and pets. 

Tip 4:  It is important to keep the candle wick trimmed to 1/4 inch.  This will prevent carbon build up resulting in a ‘mushroomed’ wick.   

Tip 5:  If soot builds up inside the container, this can be removed with a paper towel & window cleaner.  Baby wipes work great too!  

Tip 6:  All candles will produce some smoke and soot but proper burning (keeping the wick trimmed and avoiding drafts, etc.) will help prevent this from occurring.

Tip 7:  If a wick is trimmed too short to light, remove approximately ¼ inch of wax from around the wick.  After it is burned and cooled the appearance will return to normal.

Tip 8:  Candles will discolor if left in direct sunlight or spotlights for extended periods of time.

Tip 9:  Candles should be burned 1 hour for each inch of its diameter. This allows for a good burn pool to develop, reaching the outer edge. Burning a candle for less time may cause the candle to hollow and will shorten the candle burn time. Plainly said: Burn a 3 inch wide candle no less than 3 hours at a time. 


Safe & Happy Candle Burning!
