General Candle Safety & Burning Tips

  • Remove all packaging before lighting.
  • Place on a protected, heat-resistant, dry surface, away from other flammable materials, and out of reach of children and pets.
  • Use holders designed for the particular candle style.
  • Keep wick(s) trimmed to 1/4 inches at all times.
  • If any smoke occurs, blow candle out. Trim wick, remove any trimmings or foreign materials, and relight.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, or any combustible material.
  • Keep the wick centered at all times.
  • Avoid burning candles in drafty areas.
  • Never leave burning candles unattended.
  • Keep all matches and lighters out of the reach of children.
  • Teach everyone in the family the rules of safe candle use.

How to Store Your Candle Properly

The candle wax and fragrance oils we use in our candles are sensitive to both temperature and light, so please be careful when storing candles for an extended period of time. If you store your candle, be sure it is in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or intense light. Keeping it in a dark place like a cupboard or box will protect it from fading and discoloration.

Since our candles can be sensitive to extreme cold and heat, it’s best to store them between 50ºF and 85ºF. Be sure not to leave our candles in your car for an extended period of time (particularly on hot days) as they may melt or discolor. Extreme cold causes cracking and separation, so it’s best to follow our temperature guidelines. After long exposure to the cold, you should allow the candle to return to room temperature for a minimum of 2 hours before burning it to minimize potential damage.

As our blend of wax is all natural, extreme temperature changes (hot or cold) may cause "frosting" or white spots to appear on the candles. This is a completely natural occurrence and will not affect the burn quality of the product.

Signature Jar Candles

  • Handle with care; glass containers are fragile. Avoid glass-to-glass contact when removing or replacing the lid.
  • Do not use if the jar is cracked, chipped or scratched.
  • Do not refill with wax.
  • Do not allow the flame to touch the side of the jar. Keep wick centered at all times.
  • The jar may become hot. Handle carefully.
  • If smoking occurs, check for drafts or high traffic areas, which may cause flame to flicker and smoke. 
  • Keep wick trimmed to no longer than 1/4". If it is, extinguish, trim to 1/4", and relight.
  • To minimize wax left on the sides of the jar, burn 2 hours at a time per 1” diameter.
  • Prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface by discontinuing use when 1/4" of wax remains.
  • Only burn in a suitable holder, or on a plate or other fire and heat resistant surface.
  • Extinguish carefully before replacing the lid.

Pillar Candle

  • When wax pool reaches the candle’s edge, extinguish flame and allow candle to harden before relighting to prevent dripping.
  • Discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains.
  • Never place directly on furniture. Only burn in an appropriate holder.

Tea Light Candles

  • As wax melts, make sure wick is centered in candle cup.
  • If wick smokes or builds up carbon, extinguish flame and remove the carbon before relighting.

Votive Candles

  • Burn only in an appropriate holder. Do not burn freestanding.

Soy Wax Aroma Tart Melts

  • Place Wax Aroma Tart Melts in the top of a dry fragrance warmer.
  • Never add water to your fragrance warmer. 
  • If using a Tea Light Warmer, light one tea light candle and place centered under warmer dish or bowl. 
  • If using an Electric Warmer, we recommend that you use one that is UL listed for safety assurance.
  • To change fragrance, extinguish candle flame and allow the melted wax melt to harden. Gently tap the warmer dish and in most cases the wax will pop out. Discard the melted wax potpourri or store in a plastic bag for reuse.
  • Burn within sight.
  • Keep away from other flammable materials and out of the reach of children or pets.
  • Do not use warmer dish if chipped or cracked.
  • Warmer may become hot while in use. Do not touch or move until cool.

  • As the oil warms, fragrance will be released into the room. When desired fragrance level is achieved, extinguish flame or turn off unit and allow to cool.
  • Keep away from children and pets.
  • If using a Tea Light Warmer, light one tea light candle and place centered under warmer dish or bowl. 
  • If using an Electric Warmer, we recommend that you use one that is UL listed for safety assurance.
