Candle and Melt Safety and Care

Candle Safety and Care 

Follow these guidelines to maximize your fragrance experience while keeping your space safe.

Candle Safety Tips:

  1. Never Leave Unattended: Always keep a burning candle within sight. Never leave a burning candle unattended or in a room with sleeping children or pets.

  2. Placement: Place candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface. Keep them away from flammable materials, drafts, and vents.

  3. Trim the Wick: Trim the candlewick to 1/4 inch before each use to prevent excessive smoke and soot. This ensures a clean, even burn.

  4. Burn in a Draft-Free Area: Drafts can cause uneven burning, dripping, or the candle going out. Avoid burning candles near open windows or fans.

  5. Use Candle Holders: Use appropriate candle holders designed for the size of the candle. This prevents any wax from dripping onto surfaces.

  6. Follow Instructions: Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions provided on the candle label.

  7. Keep Candles Clean: Dust and debris can affect the burn quality. Keep your candles clean by gently wiping them with a soft cloth.

Safe Wax Melts Use:

  1. Use a Wax Warmer: Always use wax melts with an approved wax warmer or melt warmer designed for the purpose.

  2. Don't Add Water: Never add water to the wax melt tray or the warmer bowl.

  3. Monitor Heat: Avoid overheating the wax melt. Use the lowest heat setting necessary to release the fragrance.

  4. Clean Regularly: Clean the wax warmer regularly to remove any residual wax before adding new melts.

Safe Match Usage:

  1. Strike on the Contatiner: Always strike the match on the provided vessel or a dedicated match striker.

  2. Keep Away from Children: Store matches out of reach of children and pets.

  3. Dispose Properly: Ensure matches are completely extinguished before disposing of them in a non-combustible container.

General Candle Care:

  1. First Burn: Allow your candle to burn for 2-4 hours. This prevents tunneling and ensures an even burn throughout the candle's life. You may see a bit of wax hangup on the sides. This is normal and the wax on the sides will melt with the candle.

  2. Extinguish Safely: Use a snuffer or gently blow out the candle to extinguish it. Avoid blowing candles out forcefully to prevent hot wax splatter.

  3. Storing Candles: Store candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to preserve their quality. Keep the lid on if you can.

  4. Emergency Procedures: In case of a candle fire, use a candle snuffer or a lid to suffocate the flame. Never use water to extinguish a candle fire.
