Candle Burning Safety
Always place any container candle on a heat resistant holder and handle burning container candles with care. The flame and melted wax can cause the containers to be too hot to handle. When the wax level is approximately ½” from the bottom of the container, you should stop burning the candle to avoid the possibility of the container cracking. Keep candles away from areas with a draft. Always remember to keep your burning candles out of the reach of children and pets and remove all flammable material from the vicinity of the flame.

The Burn
To maximize the fragrance and burn length of your candles, always allow your candle to burn long enough so it’s melt pool burns to the full circumference of the candle. If a candle is lit for too short a time, you limit your candle from burning beyond that point and from that point on it will simply burn downward and you will end up wasting your quality candle. The opposite is also true; never burn your candles too long. If you are a “marathon burner” you will do just as much damage to your candle as the “sprinters”. Ideally, once the melt pool reaches the edges of the container, it is probably the right time to blow out your candle, let it reset, trim the wick and your ready to enjoy the fragrance for the maximum life of the candle.

The Wick
This rule is universal for all candles to achieve a true quality burn. Trim wicks to ¼ inch and re-trim before each burn. After trimming your wick, make sure your wick is still centered in the candle. If it has started to lean a little you can recenter it using a wick dipper or a tooth pick. If you are burning a quality candle and it begins to soot, extinguish the flame, trim the wick and relite. Wick length determines flame height, the longer the wick, the larger and more unpredictable the flame. If you go shorter than ¼ inch it will probably extinguish itself in the melt pool.
