SCENTSATIONAL CANDLE CARE & SAFETY TIPS

To optimize your candle burning experience, we recommend the following guidelines:

  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room and away from anything flammable. Make sure burning candles are out of reach of children and pets.
  • Choose an area away from drafts, open air vents or ceiling fans. This will help avoid rapid burning and prevent flare-ups.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
  • Candle, container and/or wax can become hot to the touch when in use.  Please handle with care.
  • Upon first ever use, burn for at least two hours, or until the entire surface has turned to liquid wax. This will help prolong the life of your candle.
  • Trim wick to 1/8” before each lighting. This will maintain an even and clean burn. Use a wick trimmer for a perfect trim.
  • It is recommended that after burning the candle for four hours, extinguish, and allow to cool for two hours.  Re-trim before relighting.
  • Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlight. Candles may fade if they are left in bright light for an extended period of time.
  • Always burn candles on a stable, heat resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
  • EXTINGUISH and DISCONTINUE use of a candle when ½” of wax remains at the bottom of the jar.
  • Keep wax pool free from wick and other debris at all times.
  • Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
  • Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. Cool, align and trim the wick as recommended, then check for drafts before relighting.
  • Allow candles to cool completely before touching or moving.
  • It is highly recommended to use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. Never use water as it can cause wax to splatter or glass to break.
  • Always read and follow the manufacturer’s use and safety instructions carefully.
