Container Candle Burning & Safety Tips
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep candles within sight when they are lit and extinguish them when you leave the room or before going to sleep. Position candles where small children and pets cannot accidentally knock them over.
  • Trim the wick to 1/4" before lighting the candle. Keeping wicks trimmed, straight, and centered will cause the candle to burn evenly and keep the container clean.
  • Make sure to snuff candles out (smother the flame). If you blow them out, the wax may spray and cause burns or damage furniture. Blowing them out can also cause the wick to move and not be centered anymore, which affects how the candle will burn.
  • Place candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface. Use a type of holder like a ceramic tile underneath a container candle to protect wood furniture from heat transferred to the container.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and debris.
  • Do not burn a candle longer than the manufacturer recommends. Most container candles should be burned for a maximum of 4 hours. They should be extinguished to allow cooling from the liquid to a solid state before trimming the wick and relighting.
  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and smoking. Drafts can also blow lightweight objects into the flame where they could catch fire. Ceiling fans can cause drafts.
  • Never touch or move a container candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Do not expose candles to direct sunlight--it may cause the color to fade although most container candles contain UV inhibitors.
  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
