Candle Care and Safety Tips

Candle Safety:

** Our candles have a safety label, located under the tin. Please ensure you read the safety instructions prior to using the candle.

- Do not leave the candle lit unattended and our of sight (e.g. do NOT leave a lit candle in a room with closed doors)

- When candle is on for a long period of time, the tin might get hot. Make sure you do not light the candle on surfaces prone to flammability. Avoid moving the candle when it is burning and take good caution when moving it immediately after it is blown out as the tin might be hot.

- Keep the candle away from any flammable/explosive material. This includes, but is not limited to, fabrics, curtains, stove, wood material, etc.

- Keep out of reach of children and pets.


Candle Care:

Wicks:

- The optimum size of the wick is "1/4. Make sure to trim the wicks before the first use and during lifetime of the candle. Avoid trimming the wicks while the candle is on, or immediately after use when the wax is hot to avoid any skin burn or other safety risks.

- The length of the wick impacts the life of the candle and the strength of the aroma. Longer wick creates larger frames which will burn wax faster (shorter lifetime) and stronger aroma.

- Cutting the wicks too short may result in very small flames (insufficient to properly melt the wax and release essential oil aroma) or losing the ability to be lit.


Wax:

- Believe it or not, there is a term called "Candle Memory"! This refers to the way the candle will continue to burn during its lifetime based on how it is used each time it is lit and the duration of use each time: If you burn your candle for a too short period of time, you create tunnels that will eventually lead to layers of wax on the walls of the tin which will not burn. To achieve the perfect burn, it is best to allow your candle to create a harmonized liquid pool across the top before blowing it out to avoid tunneling.

- Do not throw burnt/trimmed wick remainders in the wax.

- After each use, let the wax cool down and solidify, then cover the tin with the lid to preserve the quality of the wax and the essential oils. If you put the tin immediately after use, bubbles and imperfections will appear on the surface of the candle.
