Candle Safety

We want you to enjoy our products safely, so we've put together a list of precautious you should always follow.

  • Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing. Blow the flame out gently, or use a wick dipper for safe extinguishing.

  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.

  • The glass containers become hot when in use. Do not touch or move a candle when in use. Allow time for it to cool before touching.

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

  • Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

  • Trim candle wicks to 5mm each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning and dripping.

  • Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high.  The means candle isn’t burning properly. Let it cool, trim the wick, then check for draughts before relighting.

  • Be sure the candle is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.

  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.

  • Keep burning candles away from draughts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting. Draughts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.

  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.

  • Place multiple burning candles at least 10cm apart from one another. This helps ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own draughts to cause improper burning.
