Safety Guidelines

BURNING CANDLES IS QUITE A FORM OF ART.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND SAFETY GUIDELINES BELOW CAREFULLY, SO YOU CAN ENJOY YOUR CANDLE TO THE FULLEST!

Safety guidelines:
• Always light a candle safely and never leave it burning unattended.
• Place your candle (even if it is already in a glass) on a heat-resistant surface and make sure the candle is placed straight and stable.
• Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
• Make sure there are no flammable objects near your burning candle.
• If you want to light several candles at the same time, make sure there is a minimum distance of 15 cm between them.
• Make sure no matches or other debris is left behind in the wax.
• Do not place candles near a heat source. Burning guidelines:
• Check the glass for potential cracks before use. If these are present, please DO NOT use the candle but contact your supplier.
• Shorten the wick(s) to approx. 0.5 cm before each use of your candle.
• Do not burn your candle in drafty areas of your home. This will help prevent the candle from smoking or sooting.
• Leave the candle burning long enough for the top layer of the wax to melt (almost) completely. This is the best way to burn out the candle nicely and prevent a "tunnel effect".
• The best way to extinguish your candle is with a candle snuffer. This prevents afterglow.
• In order to prevent an irregular burning pattern, it is important that you put the wick(s) back in the original position after you extinguished your candle. Allow the candle to cool down a little and position the wick(s) before the wax has hardened.
• When your candle is extinguished and cooled down, regularly clean the inside of the glass.
• If your candle is almost burned out, extinguish it when at least one centimeter of wax remains in the glass, in order to prevent the flame from burning against the glass.
• Keep an eye on the length and position of the wick(s) of your candle while it is burning. If your candle is not in a draught and still starts to smoke or soot, there is a good chance that the wick(s) is/are too long or are not placed in the correct position. Extinguish your candle, wait until it has cooled off and cut/position the wick(s).
• Always extinguish your candle in case of smoke, if the wick(s) is/are too long, the flame(s) is/are too high, or if only a small layer of wax (less than one centimeter) remained in the glass.
• For scented candles in glass: burn your candle in a sufficiently large space to limit the concentration of scented material in the air. Please ventilate sufficiently.
