Candle Care Tips from!

Container Candles or also known as candles with a wick:
Each time a container candle is lit it should be burned until the liquid wax melt pool reaches the sides of the container. This will result in a longer lasting candle without the occurrence of tunneling down the center.

The candle will last longer by keeping the wick trimmed to 1/8 inch. The further the flame gets down into the container, the more often the wick needs to be trimmed.

To prevent fire, always burn this candle within sight on a heat-safe surface, away from flammable items. Keep out of reach of children and pets. For best results, burn until wax melts evenly across the container, not exceeding 4 hours at a time.

Keep wax pool free of debris. Keep the wick centered and trim to 1/8 inches each time the candle is lit. Avoid drafts. Never touch or move a hot candle. Stop burning the candle when 1/2 inches of wax remains inside the bottom of the container. Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Remember that the glass container of the candle will be hot to the touch; take care on how you handle the candle. Never blow out the flame with your breath; this can cause hot wax to splash up into your face or onto the counter top where the candle is sitting. Use a wick damping tool to snuff out the flame.

If you notice that the glass candle container is cracked, do not light. The safest thing to do in this case is to disregard the candle. If you notice the candle is extensively smoking, dampen the flame, trim the wick to 1/8 inch, center the wick and make sure there is no debris around the wick or the surface of the candle, check for any drafts and re-light.

Tart melt candle burning tips:
Failure to follow these directions could result in unexpected fire hazard or personal injury. Use only in a well-ventilated low heat tart melt candle burner without a lid. Never add water. Never heat on stove or electric appliance where temperature would exceed 190 degrees F. Melt enough wax to have 1/2 inch of wax in the tart burner bowl. Use only in melters designed for wax melt tarts. Remember that that the tart burning bowl will be hot to the touch, be careful when handling and pouring out the used wax.
