Please keep all candles away from children and pets. Never place a burning
candle close to flammables (eg curtains, paper etc..). Always place candles on a
non burnable surface. Keep away from drafts and always use a snuffer to put the
candle out, never blow it out.
Trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting. As the candle burns allow the liquid pool
to melt out towards the edge. When the melted pool reaches about 1/4" - 3/8" from the
edge , it is at this that time that you gently push the top edge walls in towards the wick,
as you do this , the pool of wax rises up. If the wick is more than a 1/4 inch trim it now.
To extinguish the flame, use a snuffer or gently push the wick over into the melted
wax and straighten upright with a paper clip . Never blow out a candle flame.
To prevent " hollowing " or " tunnelling " in the center of the candle , the melted
pool must be allowed to melt out near the edge each and every time the candle is lit.
Place in a t-light cup or holder made for a t-light. They should be self sufficient
and need no care.
We recommend that flat top votives be burned in a glass tealight cup or container
that allows sufficient air flow to supply the flame. A flame wavering back and forth
is an indication that the flame is starving for air, resulting in incomplete combustion.
A flame that is not burning efficiently will produce air pollution in the form of unburned
beeswax, or soot.
Tapers need to be well secured or seated in a taper holder. Do not place near drafts.
Always use a snuffer to put out, never blow them out.
