Candle Care Instructions
Candle Care Instructions
Burning Instructions:Always burn candles within sightNever burn candles near flammable itemsKeep candles away from children and pets
Trim wick to 1/4″ before lighting. Keep the candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings. Only burn the candle on a level, fire-resistant surface. Do not burn the candle for more than four hours at a time. Stop use when only 1/4″ of wax remains.
How to use wax melts: add the wax melt to the upper dish of your oil burner and light a tea candle on the lower part of the burner. As the tealights warms the dish from below the aroma will be released into your room from the wax melt. Never leave a lit candle unattended, and keep away from children and pets.
These candles are designed to be ornamental, however if you wish to burn them, it is advised to place them in a bowl of sand to stabilise them and avoid them tipping as the wax melts. Never leave a candle unattended. burn on a heat-resistant surface.
Unique container candles:
Please take care not to burn these candles right to the bottom. Soy wax melts at quite a low temperature, but when the wax gets too low the naked flame may cause the vessel to crack. Never leave a candle unattended and burn on a heat-resistant surface.
Turn the reeds every couple of weeks to prolong the fragrance life.
Keep out of reach of pets and small childrenDo not ingest the liquidAvoid placing in areas where the bottle can be knocked over. May damage wood and porous surfaces if spilled

WARNING: These are NOT candles. Do not light in your hand - they are designed to start fires and are highly flammable. Not suitable for gas fires, gas woodstoves or barbeques. Wax may drip as melting and pool underneath any grill.
