Candle Care & Safety

Candle Care

Before you light:
Always trim your wick to 1/8” - 1/4” before lighting. Every time. This will ensure a clean burn and the best way to maximize the life of your candle.

While burning:
For the initial burn, allow the candle to create a full melted wax pool across the entire candle. This will ensure even burning and maximum fragrance release for the life of your candle and is typically achieved within 3-4 hours.

We recommend a burn time of 3-4 hours each burn, fully melting the wax across the top each time. After 3-4 hours extinguish candle, before the next burn re-trim the wick each time. This will prolong the burn time and reduce the possibility of excess carbon buildup on the wick. Never light a candle and allow to burn until it's extinguishes on it's own (a.k.a, power burn or full burn). This is extremely common but also unsafe. 
Always discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains (½ inch if a container candle or jar candle).

If your wick starts to flicker or smoke excessively, extinguish the flame,  trim the wick, and re-light the candle.

The candle wax pool must stay clear of debris, wick trimmings, and matches for safety.

- Never extinguish candles with water
