Live Fire

Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.

Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, or anything flammable.

Do Not Move

Never touch or move a candle while it is burning or after use (liquified wax).

Candles burn up to 1,830 °F and will burn you if touched or spilled.

Always In Sight

Never leave a candle unattended while lit or in use during the burn session.

Keep the candle within your eyesight while burning in case of an emergency.

Avoid Drafts

Avoid drafts or vents.This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning for the candle.

It will also prevent stray embers spreading from the candle.

Burn Time

Burn the candle for no longer than 4 hours at a time. Allow 2 hours at least for a full melt pool.

Burning for longer than 4 hours could lead to a poor relight on the next use.

Trim Your Wick

The best burn comes from taking care of the wick! Wood wicks prefer to be trimmed before each light.
