Read the below safety rules before using your candle.
Always keep a burning candle within sight.
Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning.
Long or crooked wicks cancause uneven burning and dripping.
Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
You can use the lid of the candle for this purpose. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
Always ensure the first burn is for approximately 2 hours.
This should be sufficient time to create a wax pool that covers the surface of the candle and will stop “tunnelling” from occurring.
Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents.
This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting. Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.
Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.
Don’t burn a candle all the way down.
Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when half an inch is left in a container candle. NEVER expose the metal sustainers.
Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder.
It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another.
This helps ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts to cause improper burning.
Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle.
It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax splatters.
Never extinguish candles with water.
The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might cause a glass container to break.
Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high.
The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting
Never use a candle as a night light.
NEVER burn a candle for longer than 3 hours.
Be aware that if a candle burns too long and gets too hot, it can cause issues with glues that have been used for labelling and could cause them to ignite.
