Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the following candle safety guidelines. Enjoy your candle responsibly.

  • Take care when handling candle jars as they can become hot during burning and may take several hours to cool down. If using a candle warmer, follow our safety instructions as well as the warnings provided by the candle warmer manufacturer. Ensure that our candle fits securely inside the designated candle holder area.
  • Always keep a burning candle within your sight. Before leaving a room or going to sleep, extinguish all candles.
  • Avoid burning candles near flammable objects. Keep candles away from drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, and flammable decorations.
  • Keep candles out of reach of children and pets. Avoid placing lit candles where they can be easily knocked over.
  • Trim candlewicks to 1/4 inch each time before lighting. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping, and sooting.
  • Place the candle holder on a stable, level, and heat-resistant surface. This will help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and reduce the risk of glass containers cracking or breaking. If the glass breaks or becomes damaged, discontinue using the candle.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and debris at all times.
  • Always read and carefully follow the candle safety rules and instructions provided on the candle warning label.
  • Avoid burning a candle for longer than 3-4 hours.
  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans, and air currents to prevent rapid, uneven burning, flame flare-ups, and sooting. Drafts can also blow lightweight curtains or papers into the flame, posing a fire hazard.
  • Burn candles in well-ventilated rooms. Avoid burning too many candles in small or poorly ventilated spaces.
  • Extinguish the candle if it comes too close to the holder or container. To ensure safety, stop burning our candles when only 1 inch of wax remains in the container.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle or the liquid wax. The glass container, wax, and wick become extremely hot during and after use.
  • Avoid using a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder, as it may scratch, weaken, or break the glass upon subsequent use.
  • Place burning candles at least three inches apart to prevent melting or creating drafts that can cause flare-ups.
  • Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle safely and prevent hot wax splatters.
  • Do not use water to extinguish candles, as it can cause the hot wax to splatter and potentially break the glass container.
  • Exercise caution when using candles during a power outage. Flashlights and battery-powered lights are safer alternatives in such situations.
  • Ensure a candle is completely extinguished and the wick is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
  • If a candle flickers repeatedly, smokes, or the flame becomes too high, extinguish it. Allow it to cool, trim the wick, check for drafts, and then relight.
  • Never use a candle as a nightlight.
  • Failure to follow candle safety rules could lead to fire hazards, damage, and serious injury.
  • We also recommend allowing your candle to burn completely across the top with each use, which typically takes about 1-1.5 hours.
