Candle Burning and Safety Tips

Candles and Tealights

It’s very important that you burn candles responsibly to ensure safe use.

 

  • Glass and containers may be hot to touch, please use heat resistant hand protection while handling.

  • Handle with care, glass containers are fragile.

  • Keep away from children and pets.

  • Never ingest

  • Never leave burning candles and/or tealights unattended. Keep them within sight at all times.

  • Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch to prevent smoking and carbon mushrooming. Re-trim the wick before every use.

  • If carbon build-up occurs on the end of wick, blow candle  out. Trim wick to ¼ inch and remove trimmings .

  • If smoking occurs, blow candle/tea light out. Trim wick, remove trimmings, and relight.

  • Burn in a draft free area clear of furniture and/or combustible materials.

  • Keep spaced apart while lit to prevent uneven burning.

  • Keep the burn pool clean; never throw matches into the candle.

  • Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.

  • Extreme heat should be avoided. Do not store in a hot car.

  • Always place candles and tealights on a non combustible, heat resistant base set on a level stable surface.

  • Do not use if the jar is cracked, chipped or scratched.

  • Do not refill candles with wax.

  • Do not burn tea lights in an enclosed space like a potpourri pot. If using a melt warmer, make sure the warmer is unplugged/unlit and well ventilated.
