5 WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR CANDLES 

Follow these tips to get the best (and safest!) burn.

  • Trim that wick! Before lighting, be sure the wick is trimmed to ¼”. This makes for a clean burn and prevents soot build-up. We prefer to use a wick trimmer, but scissors will do the job, too!  
  • Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar each burn to prevent pooling.  
  • Safety first! Never leave a candle burning unattended, and don’t burn for more than 4 hours at a time. 
  • Stop burning the candle when only ¼” of wax remains.
  • Once the candle is gone, reuse it! We love cleaning out used candle jars and turning them into storage or new planters! Check out a few images below to see how we re-purpose jars. 

Safety first - because candles burn and contain a small flame, so we encourage following these common sense rules of thumb:

  • Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.
  • Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Do not allow your wick to curl over, as this can create a larger than normal flame.
  • Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.
  • Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.
  • Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
