Candle Tips & Cautions

Remove packaging and label before burning.

Trim wick to 1/4" after each use or before burning again. After candle and wick hardens, pinch off with finger tip, this method works well. Do not leave trimmings in top of candle.

Keep candles out of drafts. Drafts create large flames shortening the burning time.

Only burn candles on a suitable protective surface.

Pillar candles: First lighting, burn for 1 hour and  extinguish. Trim Wick.  Burn pillar candles (single wick) 1 hour for each inch diameter of the candle at a time.  Example: 3" diameter burn for a 3 hour time period.

Multi - wick pillars candles. First lighting, burn for 1 hour and extinguish. Trim wicks. Thereafter, burn candle for approximately 3 to 31/2 hours until melt pool of each wick forms 1 melt pool.  

Votive candles should be burned in a glass votive holder. Discontinue burning when there is 1/4" wax left in the bottom of the holder. To easily remove wax from your votive holder, place in freezer for 15 minutes. Candle wax will then release from glass.

Candles exposed to bright light and sunlight will fade over extended periods of time.

Keep candles out of reach from children and pets.

Properly extinguish candles after each use.

NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED OR BURNING WHILE YOU SLEEP.
