NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED!
Always burn candles on a heat resistant surface.
Candle holders may become hot and damage furniture.
A good heat resistant surface can be made from a ceramic tile (cover bottom with felt to protect furniture.
Keep all burning candles away from children and pets.
Position candles away from flammable objects.
Place freestanding candles in a shallow dish or bowl to catch the wax in case of a blowout.
Do not burn candles to the very bottom.
The following burning tips will help you get the most out of your candles.
Always keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch (6mm.).
Burning most candles no longer than 3 to 4 hours at a time will increase total burn time.
Large diameter candles should be burned no longer than 2 hours at a time. This helps keep the sides intact, allowing the candle to glow from within.
If a candle burns unevenly it is in a draft. Rotate the candle 90 degrees periodically to keep burning uniform, or move it to another location.
A teaspoon of water in the bottom of votive cups will help prevent overheating and ease removal of spent candle.
Snug a loose fitting taper in its socket by wrapping bottom of candle with tin foil. Never use a flammable material for this.
Container candles (jar candles, votives in holders, etc...) should be burned 1 hour for each inch of diameter. This allows the wax pool to cover the entire surface, improves scent throw, and extends the burning time.
Refrigerating candles for a few minutes before burning extends burning time slightly. Care must be taken since refrigerating for too long may cause cracks in the candle.
The life of large candles may be extended by placing a votive inside once the burn hole is deep enough. The votive can be wrapped in tin foil to ease removal.
