Candle Care

Candles can bring relaxation, meditation and comfort in so many ways.  However, they still are a fire hazard.  I've included some hints below to ensure candle safety and longevity .



  • Before you burn your candle, be sure to trim the wick at least ¼ inch each time.  This prevents uneven burning, dripping or flaring. 
  • Place the candle on a heat-resistant and flat surface. This will also help prevent possible heat damage or the glass candle from falling and breaking.
  • Avoid placing the candle in a drafty area.  Wind/drafts may make the candle burn uneven and possibly producing soot.  
  • Plan to burn your candle, each time you light, for 2-3 hours.  This This will help the candle burn evenly.


  • If the candle is getting low, do not burn it with less than a 1/4 inch of wax left in the container. 
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended \
  • If the candle's flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly, blow out the candle and trim the wick. Also check to see if the candle is in a drafty area.
  • Never burn a candle near curtains, furniture, books or any papers. 
  • Keep away from children and pet's reach


  • When you are ready to turn the candle off, try to use a snuffer, or even the top to cover it.  This will avoid any hot wax from splattering.  
  • Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
