Candle Safety Information

Before Burning

The first burn is really important, soy wax has a “memory” and if it does not fully burn on the first burn it won't burn properly in the future, leave lit for at least an hour, until the melt pool reaches the edge of the candle jar.

Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.
Burn for 2-3 hours each time you light the candle. This will help the candle burn evenly, and remember to trim wicks.

While Burning

Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first.

Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquid.

Never burn a candle all the way down. For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is ½ cm of wax left in the vessel. This will avoid the glass overheating and cracking.

If burning multiple candles, place the candles at least 4cm apart. This will ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own draughts.

Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted draughts.

Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, curtains, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.

Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
