Safety Instructions

Please read these safety instructions before you light up.

 

  • Always keep a burning candle within sight.
  • Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
  • Place candles away from drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Don’t place lighted candles where they might be knocked over by children or pets.
  • Trim candlewicks to 4mm each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks cause uneven burning and dripping.
  • Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use.The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy and large enough to contain drips or melted wax.
  • Be sure the candleholder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface.This will also help prevent possible heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from cracking or breaking.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Always read and follow the manufacturer's use and safety instructions carefully.
  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents.This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting.
  • Drafts can also blow lightweight curtains or papers into the flame where they could catch fire.
  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
  • Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. It's the safest way to prevent hot wax splatters.
  • Never extinguish candles with water.The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might cause a glass container to break.
  • Make sure a candle is completely extinguished and the wick is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
  • Extinguish a candle if it flickers repeatedly, smokes, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn't burning properly. Let it cool, trim the wick, check for drafts and then re-light.
