Follow these helpful tips and read the warning label underneath your candle vessel to safely burn your favourite soy candles each and every time: 

CANDLE SAFETY

  • Always trim your wick down to 1/4 inch from the top of the wax

  • Never leave your lit candle unattended

  • Keep your candle away from interfering debris and overhanging objects

  • Do not burn your candle longer than 5-6 hrs at a time

  • Do not use cork top to extinguish flame

  • Always keep candles out of reach from young children and pets

  • Do not burn your candle once the wax has gotten down to 1/2 inch to avoid concentrated high heat against the glass vessel

  • Always read the warning label underneath the vessel before burning

 

CANDLE CARE

  • Always trim your wick down to 1/4 after each burn. This keeps the wick from developing a bulbous tip while keeping the flame low.  By trimming your cotton wick each time, you will avoid uncontrolled flickering, a faster burn, black smoke, and soot from gathering along the edges of the vessel

  • Let your soy candle burn long enough each time so that the wax melts all the way to the edge of the vessel to avoid tunnelling

  • To keep your candle clean and free of dust and debris, place cork top on when not burning. (Do not use to extinguish flame)

  • Do not place lit candles near air drafts such as open windows, fans and high traffic areas in the home. Drafts will cause a faster and uneven burn, as well as soot to gather along the edges

  • Do not store your candle in direct sunlight. This can cause the wax to melt faster and the colour of wax to change

  • Using a candle snuffer, snuff the candle to extinguish the flame to avoid wax splatter

  • Always place your candle on a heat-safe surface when burning to avoid heat damage
