Basic Candle Care

There is so much love that goes in to creating all of our beautiful candles. Here are somethings to help you care fore them.

Candles should burn one hour for every one inch in diameter of the candle. This will avoid tunneling.

Always burn a candle within site, and keep away from flammable objects. Keep candles away from small children and pets.

Trim the wicks to keep your candle burning clean. You can do so when the candle is not lit in between burns. With all of our candles make sure to not burn candle to base of vessel to avoid risk of glass shattering or other issues.

When your vessel is empty, bring your clean ( see next topic) candle back for a refill.

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to us!

We hope you love your candle! - Christine, Owner & Maker
