Candle care 

safety

  • Never burn a candle that is not within sight.

  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents.

  • Never touch or move a candle when the wax is liquid.

  • Never burn a candle directly on or near anything flammable.

  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.

  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings and matches. 

  • Trim candlewicks to one quarter inch each time before burning.

  • Make sure all candles are completely out before leaving the room

burning tips for beeswax candles

  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4″ or less to prevent soot.

  • To prevent tunneling, burn candles until the melt pool reaches the candle wall. 

  • To achieve a full melt pool, you should burn your candle one hour for each inch in diameter or until the wax pool extends from edge to edge. For example, our white tin candles (3 in. in diameter) should be burned for 3 hours for a full melt pool. This will extend the longevity of your beeswax candles.
