Candle Safety

Human error is responsible for nearly 800 house fires in Canada every year. All of these are preventable, which is why it's important to know how to protect yourself.

Trim your wick

Maintaining properly trimmed wicks is essential for the best possible candle experience. Whether you have a wooden wick or a regular cotton wick, it is important to trim the wick to a length of 1/4 inch before each lighting.

 This will help wooden wicks re-light more easily and ensure that cotton wicks burn optimally, maximizing the burn time of your candle. By taking this simple step, you can ensure that your candle burns cleanly and effectively, filling your space with beautiful fragrance.

The first burn

Soy wax candles have a "memory" that can affect the way they burn. To ensure the best possible candle experience and extend the lifespan of your candle, it is important to burn your candle for at least 2 hours (but no more than 4) during the first burn, allowing the wax to reach a full melt pool.

 This will set a "memory" for the candle, helping it to burn evenly and efficiently in the future. By following this simple tip, you can help your soy wax candle burn cleanly and effectively, filling your space with beautiful fragrance for longer.

Keep away

Keep pets and children away from your burning candles. You should also keep your candles away from drafts and anything flammable.
