Candle Safety & Burning instructions

Warning: A lit candle or waxburner is an open flame. Please read this safety guide to ensure that you use your candles and waxmelts properly and safely.

Before burning candles:

  • Trim the wick to 5mm
  • Place it on a heat-resistant tray or plate
  • Light your candle in a well-ventilated space, away from draughts and flammable materials. Burning your candle in a well ventilated area will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and weak scent. 
  • Burn for at least 1 hour (depending on the size of your candle, to ensure that you have an even waxpool, all the way to the edge. This will prevent tunnelling. Do not burn mini candles for more than 2 hours at a time and large candles no more than 3 hours at a time. Extra large candles can be burned safely for 4 hours at a time.
  • If burning multiple candles, place them at least 10cm apart
  • Before relighting your candle, trim your wick to 5mm and remove any wick debris
  • Do not burn candles completely and discard when wax is 1cm from the base

Candle safety

  • Never leave a burning candle or burner unattended
  • Never burn a candle near any flammable items. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, or anything else that may easily burn.
  • Do not place lighted candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim and straighten the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
  • Never use a candle as a nightlight or where you may fall asleep.
  • Never burn a candle in a tent or in a non-ventilated space.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle or waxburner.
  • Never use a candle during a power outage to look for things in a closet, or when fueling equipment – such as a lantern or kerosene heater.
  • To safely extinguish the flame, use a candle snuffer to prevent hot wax from splattering
  • Never throw water on a lit candle or candle fire
  • When not in use, store your candle in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and nearby heat sources to prevent discolouration
