Candle Safety and Burning Guide For Home Interiors Candles and Wax Melts

Good SenseCandles burn with an open flame and should be treated with the proper respect. This will help prevent the possibility of property damage and/or bodily harm. Always trim the wicks to ¼” before each burn. This keeps the flame smaller which means less flickering and black smoke. Always burn candles on a heat resistant, non-flammable surface. This helps protect your furnishings from exposure to heat or flame. Remember that candles, other than jar types, can drip so be extra careful with pillars and votives. Candles contain fragrances, colors, and oils, so be sure not to lay them on any material that can be stained. For longer life store candles in a cool dry place out of direct sun light when not being used. This helps to preserve the color and fragrance. When you put out a candle, blow across the top of the candle, never downward, as this could cause hot liquid wax to splash. It is best to use a candle snuffer whenever possible. Never burn candles unattended. Remember this is an open flame and can be very dangerous.Jar Candles
