Candle Safety Tips

We strongly advise all our customers follow basic candle safety guidelines.

The Three Basics of Candle Safety:

  1. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  1. Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.
  1. Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.

 The Suggested Way to Burn a Candle:

 Before lighting-

  • Trim the wick to 1/8 inch each time before burning. The safest way to do this is with a wick trimmer. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
  • Burn tin candles in a well-ventilated room.
  • Place the tin candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Avoid drafts, vents or air currents.This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, and excessive dripping.

 While burning-

  • Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle when the wax is liquefied.
  • Don't burn a candle all the way down.For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/2 inch of wax remains.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly.Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
  • Always keep the candle within your sight.If you are going to leave the room, be sure to first blow out all candles.
  • Keep candles away from pets and children
  • When extinguishing it is recommended that you Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. It's the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
  • Never use water to extinguish a candle.Water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might break a glass container.
  • Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
  • Don't touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
