get the best burn

To get the best (and safest) burn from your candles, please follow these tips and general warnings:

  • Never burn candles for more than four hours at a time.

  • Most candle containers are made from glass or metal and should always be handled with care. Containers may be hot during and after burning. Do not move candle while it is burning or wax is hot.

  • Before each burn trim your wooden wick to about 1/8 inch in length. This is very important to get the best burn! You can do this with a Wick Trimming tool or by breaking the black soot off the top of your wicks with your fingers. 

  • Never leave your candle unattended and never leave within reach of children or pets.

  • Keep wax free of matches, wick trimmings, and any other flammable materials. We recommend removing large crystals, florals or herbs before burning. Sometimes large, heavy toppings like crystals can sink into the melted wax while burning and drown the wick. Small crystals and toppings should not affect the burn of your candle.

  • Many of our products contain crystals, herbs and/or florals. These can move around during shipping and, in the case of candles, while candles are lit, so please be aware of them and their potential fire hazard. Remove any toppings if necessary. Should an item in the candle ever catch fire (though we have never had an issue with this), carefully cover the candle and flame with the lid to snuff it out. Do not blow on a flame.

  • Always burn candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface away from flammable objects such as curtains, books, pillows and so on.

  • Keep candles away from areas with drafts while lit.

  • Discontinue use when only 1/2 inch of wax remains at the bottom of the container - glass can break when in extreme heat and any remaining florals or herbs can become dangerous without wax. To use up the remaining wax, place the candle on a candle warmer.
