Candle Care & Safety

Preparing your candle for the first burn -

The first thing you want to do is make sure your wick is the proper length. We recommend using a wick trimmer since it creates a nice clean cut that maintains the integrity of the wick. You want your wick to be about ¼” in length before burning. You will want to trim the wick to this size for every subsequent burn. We recommend only trimming wicks on cooled candles, to prevent debris from falling into hot wax.

IMPORTANT - Trim to 1/4" before every burn. If the wood wick is too long,
it cannot absorb the wax and burn properly.

Next, you want to find the perfect surface for burning. The ideal surface is even, heat safe, away from drafts, and out of reach of pets, children and draperies.

Finally, you may light your candle!

Candle Don'ts:

Don’t leave unattended

Don’t play with the wax or try to move the wax around the jar. This will make the wax uneven and promote uneven burning.

Don’t burn for more than 4 hours. Your wick can “mushroom” and create a large and unstable flame.

Don’t forget to trim that wick! Untrimmed wicks lead to popping, smoking, and soot. This is how candles end up looking dirty and full of debris.

Don’t burn in a small unventilated room.

Don’t fall asleep with your candle burning.
