Please follow these general burning guidelines when enjoying our candles:
The first time you light the candle, allow it to burn until the liquid wax covers the entire top of the candle. This breaking in process insures that it will perform better and more evenly throughout the life of the candle.
To prevent candles from boring a hole down the middle, burn candles at a minimum of at least one hour for each inch in diameter. For example burn a 3 inch diameter candle for a minimum of at least 3 hours each time. Burn long enough to achieve a melt pool that can be seen all the way around the glass.
To Burn your candles safely:
- Never leave a burning candle unattended.
- Always trim wick to 1/4 inch before every lighting.
- Burn in a well ventilated area but away from drafts.
- Keep out of reach of children and pets.
- Burn candles on a heat resistant surface.
- Do not burn candles near flammable objects.
- Use caution when touching a glass container while candle is burning. Glass can be hot.
- Blow out the candle if jar becomes excessively hot.
- If you notice a large flame during burning, blow out the candle & trim the wick before re-lighting.
- Do not burn a candle if the container is damaged or cracked
- Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and other debris.
When you have finished your candle, simply use a soft cloth and warm soapy water to wash out any remaining wax, then reuse the glass container. They are great for small storage, craft projects, or to be used with a tea light or votive.
