Candles Care


In order to keep your candle looking clean and pure and prevent tunneling, the  release of black soot or smoke, please follow these recommended candle care and safety instructions: 

  • Trim wood wicks to 1/8 inch before each burn.  Trim cotton wicks to 1/4 inch before each burn. You can use a wick trimmer or scissors. For wood wicks, a toe nail clipper will work as well.  Long wicks will cause unsafe flames and uneven burning. So trim, trim, trim! 
  • Extinguish candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. You do not want a dancing wick! Extinguish the wick, let the candle cool, trim and relight.
  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times. Do not allow these particles to remain in the vessel. Discard!
  • At the first burn, allow wax to reach a full melt pool, meaning allow wax to melt to the edges on the vessel, fully liquify before extinguishing.  This should take approximately 2 - 4 hours depending on the vessel. 
  • Never burn the candle for more than 4 hours and allow at least two hours to cool before relighting.
  • Never burn candle on or near anything that can catch fire.  Avoid drafts and vents. Do burn candles on an even heat resistant surface. 
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Never leave burning candle unattended. Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
  • Never touch or move a candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquefied. The container will be hot.
  • Don’t burn a candle to the bottom of the container.  Discontinue burning when 1/2 inch of wax remains in the container.
  • We suggest that you extinguish candle using a candle snuffer.  It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering. Never use water to extinguish a candle. 

All of our candles except for our "Colored for a Cause" candles are dye-free.  However, this does not mean that our wax will remain white.  Depending on the type and the volume of fragrance oil used, soy blend wax may turn a shade of off-white, cream or even yellow. This is completely normal and will not effect the performance of the candle.
