Candle Care & Safety

Candle Care

At MS Scents Candle Co., we want you to enjoy your candles safely. Here are some important candle care instructions to ensure a worry-free and delightful experience:

  1. Before lighting:

    • Trim the wick to approximately 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) before each use. This helps prevent excessive smoke and ensures a clean, even burn.
    • Remove any debris, such as wick trimmings or matches, from the candle surface to prevent flaring.
  2. During lighting and burning:

    • Place the candle on a heat-resistant surface, away from flammable objects and out of reach of children and pets.
    • Keep candles away from drafts, as this can cause uneven burning and potential hazards.
    • Always light the candle away from your face and clothing, using a long-reach lighter or match.
    • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Always extinguish the flame before leaving the room.
  3. While burning:

    • Allow the candle to burn until the wax pool reaches the edges of the container to ensure an even burn and prevent tunneling.
    • Avoid burning candles for more than 4 hours at a time. This helps maintain the quality of the fragrance and extends the candle's lifespan.
    • Keep the wick centered and upright during burning to prevent excessive smoke or uneven melting.
  4. Candle safety precautions:

    • Never touch or move a burning candle. Allow it to cool completely before handling.
    • Extinguish the flame by using a snuffer or gently blowing it out. Avoid blowing directly into the candle, as this can cause hot wax to splatter.
    • If the candle's flame becomes too large or flickers excessively, extinguish it, let it cool, and trim the wick before relighting.
    • Do not use the lid or container to extinguish the flame. It may become hot or damage the container.
