candles can be a serious fire hazard if not used properly. the following tips are to help minimize your risk when burning candles in your home.

  • burn candles away from things that can catch fire (like bedding, curtains, decorations and clothing)

  • keep burning candles out of reach of children or pets

  • follow the burning instructions on the caution sticker on your candle

  • burn candles in a well ventilated area

  • discontinue burning your candle when 1/2 an inch of wax remains and/or the wick detaches and moves off center. wick clips are set to a specific safety height to keep the flame a ½ inch from the bottom of the can. it is completely normal to have wax left over in the bottom of your candle. the wick can move off center if it was exposed to very cold temperature, such as being shipped in winter. if the candle shrunk in transit, the wick will no longer be attached to the can. be very mindful if your candle is loose, to monitor when there is an inch of wax left so that the wick does not slide to the side of the can. if the flame touches the side of the glass, it can cause it to crack and break.
