Candle Care and Safety

 Get the most out of your aromatherapy candle

  • The first time you light the candle allow the wax to melt to the outer edge of the jar until it creates a 1/4" pool. This is the breaking-in process and most important burn as it ensures an even performance throughout the life of the candle. Resulting in a cleaner and more efficient burning cycle.

  • Trim candle wicks to a 1/4" each time before lighting.

  • Always burn candles within site and never leave them unattended.

  • The maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours per burn. Burning longer than the recommended time is dangerous, especially when combined with improper wick trimming. Although we use heat-safe glass, an improperly trimmed wick can create a high flame and temperature, forming a deep melt pool and fatigue the glass.

  • Always burn the candle on a heat/flame resistant surface.

  • Keep away from children, pets and curtains.

  • Keep candles away from doors and windows that are drafty. This can provide more oxygen to the flame which can cause a more hotter, uneven burn.

  • Make sure to put out the candle properly. Never blow hard on flame or use the lid of the candle to put it out. Using a snuffer would be ideal.
