FAQs

Do you have safety tips on burning your candles?

We’re glad that you asked. Here are 6 helpful tips to ensure the safe use of our candle products.

  • Once the candle is lit the container can become quite warm so please don’t touch or move the candle while burning. Please wait until the wax has hardened.
  • Always keep an eye on your candle while burning. Even though our candles can burn for a long period, it is a good idea to only burn your candle 3-4 hours at a time to ensure its not forgotten throughout the day or night.
  • Never extinguish a flame with water. The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and also may cause the container to break. Not to mention ruining your lovely candle.
  • Keep your candle clean. Trim your wick ¼ inch before every burn. Remove any used matches or wick trimmings from candle. This will allow for a cleaner and more even burn.
  • Avoid burning candles in drafts.
  • Make sure to always keep your candle out of reach from small children, animals and pyromaniacs.
