Candle Care Guide

Best Practices

Never leave a candle unattended.

Never burn a candle near anything flammable.

Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.

TRIM YOUR WICK! Always ensure the wick is trimmed 1/4" prior to EACH use. Trimming the wick will allow the candle to have a longer, more uniform burn. A wick trimmer can be used, or a pair of nail clippers works well in a pinch

When burning our 4 oz. sample tins, place the tin on a candle dish or heat safe surface.

Before Burning

Ensure the candle is on a sturdy, level surface away from drafts.

First Burn — Allow pool of wax to extend to outside rim of jar to set its "memory." Each time you burn the candle, it will "remember" to burn out to the rim. Rule of thumb: Burn one hour for every inch of your candle's diameter.

While Burning

Stop using your candle when there's half an inch of wax left at the bottom. If you keep burning your candle past the half-inch mark, the flame will get too close to the base of the jar and might cause heat damage to the surface the candle is resting on and to the jar itself.


The two best, and safest ways to extinguish a candle flame is to use either a candle snuffer or a wick dipper. 

To use a candle snuffer, simply place the snuffer over the flame for a few seconds until the flame is extinguished.

To use a wick dipper, gently push the flaming wick into the pool of wax until the flame is extinguished.

Both of these items can be purchased on our website.


Once you have extinguished the candle flame, cover your candle with the metal lid to keep dust and debris from falling into your candle.
