Always burn your candle on a stable heat resistant surface. Keep away from drafts and flammable materials. Trim the wick on pillar candles approximately 1/4 to 3/8; and 3/8 to 1/2 inch on container candles each time they are lit. Do not burn candle when wax is less than 1/2” from bottom. If you think that your candle flame is too high, blow candle out and trim wick to a lower height. Do not touch or move candle while burning or if it is hot. Never leave a burning candle unattended and always keep out of the reach of children and pets.
Always place pillar candles on an appropriate candle holder before lighting. Never place it directly on furniture surface. If the wax of a burning pillar candle reaches the edge, blow out flame, fold edges inward and allow wax to harden before lighting again. Following these recommendations will help prevent dripping and protect your furniture.
CANDLE BURNING TIME
The burn time of candles varies depending on size, the wick (some wicks burn faster than others) and more importantly, the air that filters through a room. Even with all the windows and doors of your home closed, there is always a flow of air throughout the rooms. And since the air current varies from room to room, the burn time of your candle can vary for this reason. The stronger the air current, the shorter the life span of your candle. So you can have two candles of the same size that have different life spans. For instance, you can burn candle (A) in your bedroom and it could last for about 60 hours in burn time. You can then burn the exact same candle (B) in the living room and have it only last for about 50 hours. The difference maybe because there is more foot traffic in and out of the living room or that it’s closer to the front door that opens on a regular basis and brings in a stronger air current into the living room. All this you should keep in mind when considering the burn time of your candle.
