Candle care & safety tips

Trimming your wick is the most important part of maintaining your candle. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.  Place on temperature safe surface to avoid heat damage. Keep away from drafts. Keep wax pool free of debris.

  1. Once again, trimming your wick is the most important part of candle maintenance.  
  2. Trimming your wick gives your candle a cleaner burn.
  3. It produces less soot.
  4. It will even prolong the life of your candle by another 25-30%.

The reason why I never suggest using scissors to trim your wick is because you will never get a clean and even trim using scissors.  Also, once your candles starts to burn down scissors can’t get down in the container to ensure a clean and even cut. 

It’s never safe to burn any candle more than 3 hours at a time because the longer a candle burn the hotter it becomes.  The higher the flame becomes resulting in more soot being produced.  The soot is the major contributor to candles catching on fire.  If you do want to burn your candle for more than 3 hours at a time, simply extinguish the flame, trim the wick, then re-light.

We use only wood wicks in our candles.  Wood wicks are a bit more expensive, but they give your candle a more sophisticated look.  Wood wicks give your candle a better burn than the usual cotton wicks.  Also our wood wicks makes a crackling sound once you light them.

The type of wax we use in our candles is a vegetable wax.  It burns cleaner, it’s a very soft wax, and if you accidentally spill it, it wipes up with a paper towel.

We use only natural fragrance oils in our candles.  The fragrances we use don’t have all those harmful chemicals in them resulting in making your head hurt or affecting your allergies.

Our candles work very well with candle warmers, especially the ones we carry lol.  If you’re at the office or home and you don’t want to be bothered with keeping an eye on your lit candle, then placing them on a candle warmer is perfect.  

  1. Never leave a burning candle unattended
  2. Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire
  3. Keep From Kids & Pets:  Make sure children and pets cannot reach burning candles. Do not place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.

  4.  Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning and soot.

  5. Never move a  candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquefied.
  6. Remember to always TRIM YOUR WICK!
