Here at Scented Studio, we want to make sure you burn your candles happily and safely! The guideline below will ensure you on how to enjoy your candle from the first burn to the very last flicker of the flame.
Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning.
Burn for 2-3 hours each time you light the candle. This will help the candle burn evenly, and remember to trim wicks before each burn.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first.
- Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquified.
- Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is ¼ inch of wax left in the vessel.
- If burning multiple candles, place each candle at least three inches apart from one another.
- Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.
- Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
- Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
- Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle, if available, as it’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
- Do not use water to extinguish a candle, this can cause the hot wax to splatter and could break a glass container.
- Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is completely out and there is no glow coming from the wick.
- Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
Did you know?
'Pull away' is a term used to describe what looks like air bubbles in glass-vessel candles. After the hot wax has been poured into a vessel and cools down, it will slightly shrink, which can cause the wax to pull away very slightly from the vessel wall.
This gap is no larger than a hair, but the glass can act as a magnifier, creating the illusion of an air bubble.
There is no need to worry about this, as once you light your candle and it warms back up, these bubbles will start to disappear and will not affect your candle’s diffusion and lifespan.
