Proper Candle Care


When you receive your first candle, it is important to use them properly and to take care of them as you will take care of a newborn baby! Like all new parents, you will have many questions on how to do so. Will it burn evenly? How long do I have to burn it? Do I have to trim the wick regularly? Let's get these questions answered!

Preparing for your first burn
Depending on how you would prefer to burn your candles, the following steps can help you achieve the type of burn you want. 

    • Trim the wick to ¼" before lighting the candle, this helps to prevent uneven burning, dripping, or flaring.
    • Remove larger gemstones and dried flowers for a more even burn.
    • Keep dried flowers away from naked flames.
    • Keep candles away from flammable objects and burn them within sight.


During burning
The scent that is filling up your room right now, it smells great, isn't it? These few tips can help to protect yourselves and your loved ones.

    • Keep away from pesky children and loveable pets. 
    • Avoid moving candles when the wax is liquified. 
    • Candles should be extinguished if their flames become too high or flicker excessively.

After Burning
Do not rush to blow off your candles and head to bed! Remember the dos and don'ts when it comes to keeping your candles away after using them. 

    • To avoid hot wax splattering, extinguish a candle with a candle snuffer or cover it with a lid.
    • Do not use water. 
    • Do not burn candles all the way down to the base of the wick.
    • To remove any soot build-up, wipe the sides off the beaker with a damp cloth when the candle has been extinguished and cooled completely. 
    • Wait to touch or move the candle until it has thoroughly cooled.
