Burn candles within sight. Keep away from flammable objects. Keep away from children and pets. Trim each wick to 1/4" prior to each burn. Keep candles free of any debris including matches and wick trimmings. Burn candle on a level, fire resistant surface. Do not burn candle for more than 4 hours each time. Stop use when only 1/4" of wax remains.
Keep your candles away from drafts to prevent smoking and soot. Soy candles produce little to no soot when properly burning and trimming of wicks, but any candle will smoke and create soot if exposed to too much air, which is what happens if there is a draft. Your candle must be burned properly for safety reasons and to get the most out of your purchase. Candles have what’s called a "memory". That means when you burn a candle and then extinguish it, the next time you burn it, the candle wax will melt across as far as it did the first time. This is why it is so important to allow candles to burn all the way across to the edge of the container the first time you burn it before putting it out. This ensures that your candle does not “tunnel” as it burns, leaving wax along the sides of the container. A good rule of thumb is to burn your candle 1hr for every inch wide that the candle is. So if you have a 3 inch wide candle, you may need to burn it for at least 3 hours for a good melt pool. The melt pool is where your fragrance is. A well-made and properly trimmed scented soy candle should produce a good melt pool and fragrance experience. A good melt pool will give off the best fragrance throw. Too shallow of a melt pool will keep the candle from releasing the best amount of fragrance. Too deep of a melt pool means the wick needs trimming and the candle will burn too hot, which means it’s a fire hazard and the wax will burn too fast.
