Candle Care


For optimal burning, we recommend a minimum burning time of 2-3 hours, and no longer than 4 hours. As for wood wicks, there is no need to trim the wick with every use, but it is a good idea to trim it occasionally. Remember to also protect the surface on which the candle sits.

Before letting the light in

  • Keep the wax pool free of any debris at all times.
  • Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
  • Avoid drafts, vents, or air currents.

While the flame is alive

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first.
  • Try not to move a burning candle.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before relighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.

When the lights are out

  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish candles when possible –NEVER use water on a candle in a glass container!
  • Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is completely out.
  • Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
