CANDLE CARE AND INSTRUCTIONS
Candles are completely safe to enjoy but should be used with care and attention so that they do not lead to an accidental fire or injury. We urge consumers to be careful when burning candles and recommend the following rules below for burning candles safely. Each candle includes lighting and care instructions on the bottom label.
- Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning.
- For the initial lighting allow the candle to create a full and even burn pool across the entire candle.
- For subsequent lightings our recommended burn time is 3 to 4 hours max.
- Do not leave a burning candle unattended.
- Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
- Keep candles out of the reach of small children and pets.
- Burn candle on a heat-resistant surface.
- Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
- Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents and ceiling fans to minimize smoking or a wick blowing out causing the candle to burn unevenly.
- Always burn candles in a room with ventilation.
- Never touch a burning candle or move a candle when the wax is liquid.
- Never extinguish candles with water.
- Make sure a candle is completely extinguished and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.

RECYCLE / REUSE
Our product as well as packaging materials can be recycled, which we encourage everyone to do. Should you choose to reuse the candle glass please do so with extreme care. We can recommend the following instructions to clean the glass:
- When you blow out the candle for the last time, wait for it to cool slightly so it is not too hot to pick-up.
- While standing over a trash can, scoop the soft wax out of the jar with a handful of paper towels.
- Use the paper towels to loosen the metal wick tabs from the bottom of the glass.
- Once the wick tabs are removed, you may need a second handful of paper towels to remove remaining wax.
- Once all wax is removed you can wash the remaining wax residue out with warm, soapy water.
- We recommend hand washing glass for on-going use.
**PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION IF CLEANING THE GLASS OF WAX AND WICKS. CLEANING THE GLASS FOR REUSE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE DO NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR GLASS THAT BREAKS DURING THIS PROCESS.
