Here are some VERY IMPORTANT tips & tricks to keep all candle lovers safe! Please take the time to read them all:)
💫TRIM THE WICK💫
Always, always trim your wick to 1/4 inch before lighting any candle.
Dancing flames are not fun.
Do not put burning candles near heating and air-conditioning vents or open windows. If you notice the flame of the candle flickering in any direction other than straight up, there is a draft.
A calm, centered flame distributes heat equally which leads to a clean and even burn. It eliminates excessive smoking. This extends the lifespan of your candle because it burns slower.
💫BURN LONG ENOUGH💫
If you want your candle to burn evenly and last as long as possible, you have to light it for about 3 hours the first time you burn it. Wax has a muscle memory, and it’s going to burn in the same pattern every time.
💫BUT NOT TOO LONG💫
You can burn your candle in 3-4 hour increments. After this point, the candle is very hot & should be put out.
💫PUTTING OUT THE FLAME💫
Put your hand behind the flame, then blow out. When you blow out a flame, your hand will block those little annoying black ash particles from spreading. It’s best to let the candle cool completely before touching or moving it as well.
Last but not least, be safe.
Always burn candles in a well-ventilated space. Do not place lit candles near window treatments and other objects that can catch fire. Keep all lit candles out of the reach of children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
NEVER fall asleep while a candle is lit.

General Candle FAQs
Why should I trim my wick?
By trimming your wick to 1/4 of a inch you are in control of the flame! The goal for candle burning is to get the most out of your candle. A trimmed wick is the secret to help your candles burn evenly & SAFELY! Small flames burn the wax slowly & keeps your candle cool. Remembering this step can prevent problems like flames that are too tall & black smoke & wax that is burning too quickly.
- Is candle soot harmful?
No. The tiny amount of soot produced by a candle is the natural byproduct of incomplete combustion. Candle soot is composed primarily of elemental carbon particles, and is similar to the soot given off by kitchen toasters and cooking oils. These everyday household sources of soot are not considered a health concern, and are chemically different from the soot formed by the burning of diesel fuel, coal, gasoline, etc.
- What causes a candle to smoke? A well-made candle will create virtually no smoke when burning properly. Consumers often incorrectly believe their candles are sooting because of the wax type, fragrance, colorants or additives used in the candle’s formula, but sooting is due to flame disturbances. If the wick becomes too long, or an air current disturbs the flame’s teardrop shape, small amounts of unburned carbon particles (soot) will escape from the flame as a visible wisp of smoke. Any candle will soot if the flame is disturbed. To avoid this, always trim the wick to ¼ inch before every use and be sure to place candles away from drafts!
