Use the following tips to get the best and safest performance from your candles:

To get maximum burn time out of your candles, DO NOT extinguish until the meltpool reaches the edge of the jar. Rule of thumb: Burn candle one hour for each inch in diameter. For example, a three inch diameter candle will take approximately 3 hours to achieve a full meltpool before it should be extinguished.

Keep your wicks trimmed to 1/4" and centered at all times to avoid high flames and soot.

Keep burning candles away from children and pets.

Caution: Hot wax burns!

Keep your candles away from drafts. Drafts will cause your candle to burn unevenly, cause smoking, and may present a fire hazard.

Place all burning candles on a flame-resistant surface. Do not place a burning candle next to any flammable items.

When trimming candles, do not leave trimmings in your wax.

Burn candles for no more than 4 hours at a time, never leave a burning candle unattended!

Do not burn candles that have less than 1/2" of wax on the bottom of them.

Burn votives in appopriate, tight fitting holder.

In order to blow out your candles, snuff your candles out as opposed to blowing them out. Blowing out your candles may allow lit pieces of wick to land on something that is flammable! Do not blow out your candles!
