CANDLE SAFTEY AND CARE/TIPS
To get the safest and best burn from your candles please see the safety and candle care tips below....
SAFETY...first and foremost...
*NEVER leave a burning candle unattended, even for a short time.
*Always keep candles out of the reach of children or pets and never leave them alone with a burning candle.
*Always burn on a level draft free surface, away from low hanging or loose items.
* If wick ever drifts from centre extinguish candle immediately and re position wick when the candle is cool enough to do so. Failure to do this could result in cracking, shattering or exploding of the glass/jar.
*Always keep candles free of matches, wick trimmings and other flammable objects.
* DO NOT burn lower than 1/2 inch from bottom of jar. Burning lower may result in cracking, shattering or exploding of jar.
TIP: Scrape out unused wax and burn off in your melt warmer ...this will see the maximum result for your money!
*Always take care around a burning candle as not only is the flame dangerous but the moulten wax is HOT and WILL BURN.
CANDLE CARE and TIPS...
Your candle will give you hours of enjoyment of looked after correctly. Try following these great tips...
* Prior to burning your candle for the fist time trim wick to 1/4 inch (slightly longer for some soy candles as they can be slower burning, esecially in cold weather)
*When burning a candle for the first time allow it to burn long enough for the moulten wax pool to liquify right to the edge of the glass/jar (all the way round).
Failure to do this will cause tunnelling of your candle and as candles have a "memory as such" all future burns will see the candle melt out to where the moulten wax stopped last time and your candle will tunnel down from there. This will dramatically reduce the burn life of your candle, wasting not only your candle but your money as well.
If burned correctly your candle will burn cleanly down the jar with no residual wax or tunnelling effect evident.
*To ensure the best burn time from your candle (and to prevent power-burning) all subsequent burns should not exceed 4 hours (with the exception of when the wax pool does not reach the outer edge of the glass/jar, whic can happen in colder weather). Should you wish to burn your candle longer simply wait for the mouten pool to solidify and light again for another 4 hours.
*To eliminate smoking and soot falling into your candle while burning always trim wick to 1/4 inch EVERYTIME prior to lighting. This will also reduce the likelihood of your jars turning black from soot build-up.
*Always burn on an even, level surface away from a breeze, to prevent the candle from burning unevenly and thus prolonging its burning life.
*To prolong the life of your candle and to prevent smoking use a wick dipper or similar to extinguish your candle by dipping the wick into the moulten wax rather than blowing out.
This will not only eliminate that "blown out candle smell" but will coat the wick in wax and lower the chance of smoking when next lit. It will also prolong the burn time of your candle. TIP: Always remember to pull the wick back out of the moulten wax before it sets!
*Store unused candles in a cool dry area.
...and most importantly enjoy your beautiful candles!
