Candle Tips

Burning Tips & Instructions

General Safety

Jars Candle Tips

For best burning, all jar candles should not be extinguished until liquid covers the top. Do not allow flame to directly touch side of container. Discontinue use when ½ inch of wax remains. Keep wick trimmed to ¼ inch or less at all times to prevent smoking. Container may become hot. Handle carefully. Always use a protective surface as bottom of jar can become hot. Extinguish flame before replacing lid.

Votive Tips

Only burn votive candles in a votive holder. Authentic votive candles are made to burn for specific amounts of time and they are designed to liquefy easily to ensure proper burning quality and duration. If you burn a votive without a holder, or in a holder that is too large, the wax will spill away. This will shorten the amount of time the votive candle will burn.

Put a half of a teaspoon of water and a drop of dish soap in the bottom of the votive holder before inserting the candle. This will make it easier to remove the candle when you are done burning it.

Do not burn a votive candle all the way down to the bottom of the holder. Direct contact with the flame with a glass holder may crack the holder.

Pillar Tips

Burn 2" wide pillars for at least 2 hours the first time you light it.
Burn 3" wide Pillars for at least 3 hours the first time you light it.
Shape the outer rim of the pillar inward with your hands to ensure an even burn.
It is suggested to place your pillar on a pillar plate or proper holder to protect surfaces against possible wax dripping.
