Candle Safety

Candles are safe when burned properly, responsibly, and according to manufacturer's directions. When burning candles, consumers should always follow these basic safety rules:

  • Lighted candles should always be within sight. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Read and follow all manufacturer instructions carefully.
  • Trim the wick to 1/8 inch each time before burning.
  • Always use an appropriate candleholder placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents and air currents.
  • Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes too high. Cool, trim wick, check for drafts, and re-light.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Do not burn a candle for longer than the manufacturer recommends.
  • Always burn candles in a well ventilated room.
  • Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains (1/2 inch if in a container).
  • Never touch or move a votive or container candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Extinguish pillar candles if the wax pool approaches the outer edge.
  • Place lighted candles at least 3 inches apart from one another.

the paraffin candles...
