CANDLE CARE & SAFETY

CARE FOR YOUR CANDLE:
      
• Burn the candle for 2-4 hours.
   
• Let the wax melt all the way to the edge.
   
• Always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting (you can use wick trimmers or scissors).
   
• Do not burn the candle if there is less than 1cm of wax.
   
• Never leave the burning candle unattended.
   
• Store the candle in a cool and dry place.

      
KEEP YOURSELF SAFE AND FOLLOW THESE RULES:
   
• Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and matches at all times.
   
• When lighting a candle, use long matches or a long-reach lighter. Keep your hair and loose clothing away from the flame.
   
• Avoid drafts, vents or air currents while burning.
   
• Never leave burning candle unattended.
   
• Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
   
• Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
   
• Never touch or move a candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquefied.
    
• Never use a candle as a night light or while you may fall asleep.
   
• Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1cm remains in the container.

• Extinguish a candle using a candle snuffer if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
  
• Never use water to extinguish a candle.
   
• Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
   
• Let the candle cool down before next lighting.
   
• Store the candle in a cool and dry place.
   
• Don’t touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.

“As lovely and even soothing as a lit candle can be, it remains an open flame and is potentially hazardous. It should therefore be used cautiously. In order to enjoy candles responsibly, always follow these simple rules.”
