It comes as a surprise to many people that there is a right way and a wrong way to burn a candle. The wrong way can lead to too large of a flame that can cause sooting and a shorter burn time. It can also cause the wick to lean not allowing the candle to burn evenly or curl over drowning in the wax. We suggest a few simple steps to keep your candles burning beautifully and safely.

For The Love of Your Candle

  • The first time you burn your candle burn candles for 3-4 hours. 
  • Before each burn trim the wick to 1/4″ with a wick trimmer. Be careful not to trim it less than 1/4″ or the candle may die out too soon.
  • Clean out any debris that may have fallen in the wax or soot that’s accumulated on the edges of the container.

  • Do not burn your candle longer than 4 hours.

  • Burn your candle on a stable surface away from drafts or anything flammable.

  • Keep your candle away from children and pets.

  • After burning extinguish it with a candle snuffer or gently blow it out.

  • Store candles in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight to protect the wax and color.
