Candle Care

Do's &

  • Ensure that your wick is trimmed between 3.2mm - 4.8mm (1/4 of an inch) before each use. Remove the ash or burnt wood along the top edge of the wick from the previous burn. If you do not have a wick trimmer, simply remove it with your fingers or use a nail clipper.

  • Burn your candle no more than 4 hours at a time. This will help prolong the life of your candle. 

  • Candle, including container, wax and wick will become hot when in use. Handle with care.

  • Burn candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface, in a well ventilated area and away from things that may catch fire (i.e. curtains, decorations, beddings).

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.

  • Discontinue burning your candle when approximately 7mm (1/2 of an inch) of wax remains.​ This is for security reasons.

  • Clean and reuse your jar! See below for instructions.


Finished burning your candle? Clean and reuse your jar to help reduce the environmental foot print it leaves behind.

There are multiple ways to clean a used candle jar but this is the method I like best.

  1. Preheat the oven to 280°

  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum paper

  3. Place your finished candle jar upside down on the baking sheet

  4. Place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes​

  5. Remove from the oven

  6. Carefully wipe down the jar with some paper towel. ATTENTION - the jar will be hot so handle with care. I strongly suggest using over mitts for safety.

  7. Wash the jar with hot soapy water and let dry

  8. Once the melted wax has cooled on the baking sheet, simply place in the garbage

Note: It is possible you might have to wash the jar a couple of times to fully remove the lingering scent. You can also spray the jar with rubbing alcohol at this point.
