General Safety Guidelines ....
1. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
2. Keep lit candles away from children and pets.
3. Candles other than jar candles must be used in an appropriate non-flammable holder.
4. All candles should be placed on a safe, heat resistant dry surface.
5. Do not let wick trimmings, matches or any foreign matter collect inside the wax pool as this may create a fire hazard.
6. Burn candles away from drafts, other heat sources, and all flammable objects or materials.
7. Never allow candle flame to touch any glass surface.
To Enjoy Jar Candles Safely...
1. Handle with care. Do not use if jar is cracked, chipped or scratched.
2. Place on a protected, heat resistant, dry surface, well away from anything flammable, and out of reach of children.
3. Keep wick trimmed to 1/4" or less at all times. Keep candles free of wick trimmings, matches or other matter.
4. Do not allow flame to directly touch side of glass container.
5. Sides and bottom of container may become hot while candle is burning. Handle carefully.
6. Discontinue use when 1/4" of wax remains. This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter surface or the container itself.
7. Extinguish candle before replacing lid.
8. Store in a cool, dry place. Exposure to moisture might inhibit relighting. Color, fragrance and specific usage affect wax consumption. It is normal for some wax to be left lining the edges of the container.
Did You Know......
The degree to which we can smell candles when they are burning is affected by at least 10 variables:
2. The size of the room - a smaller room will contain the fragrant vapor in higher concentration creating a stronger impression.
3. Air flow and quality - since fragrant vapor is carried in the air, factors such as humidity, air conditioning, a fan, an open window, etc. may affect its movement.
4. The size of the wax pool - the greater the surface area of liquid wax, the more fragrance may evaporate into the air.
5. The size of the flame - a large flame will burn more of the fragrant vapor before it can escape into the air (keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch).
6. The temperature at which a fragrance vaporizes - some vaporize more readily, permeating the air to a greater extent.
7. Other sources of fragrance - our fragrance perceptions are easily confused by multiple scents.
8. Other burning candles - their flames may burn off the fragrant vapors.
9. Length of exposure - our noses desensitize to fragrances over time.
10. The person smelling the fragrance - the sense of smell varies from person to person, much like eyesight, hearing or taste.
