Candle Care & Safety


  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.

  • Trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting, which aides in preventing the flame from getting to big.

  • Don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable, at least 2 feet away!

  • Keep lit candles away from ceiling fans, and any air currents.

  • Place candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is flat and large enough to catch any melted wax.

  • Extinguish a candle if the flame gets large enough to reach the container edges.

  • Place burning candles at least 5 inches apart from one another.

  • A burning candle should never be used as a nightlight.

  • A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time.

  • To be safe, discontinue burning a candle when a 1/2 inch of wax remains in the container.
