Trim the wick
Before you light a candle for the first time or relight a used candle, you must trim the wick down to about 5mm. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
Burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where the air is limited.
Place the candle away from anything flammable.
Make sure that there is nothing flammable in the vicinity of your scented candle. Keep burning candles away from furniture, curtains and drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, clothing, hair, etc.
Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
- Keep the wax pool clear
Never touch or move a burning candle
Once the candle is lit, never touch or move it. It is dangerous to pick up the candle while it is still burning or while the liquid wax is hot.
Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
