Never leave a burning candle unattended. Always keep an eye on any lit candle as you are playing with fire!
Never burn the last 1/2" of any candle. Burning to the bottom can present a higher fire hazard.
Burn candles for no more than 3-4 hours at a time and allow at least 1 hour for the wax to solidify before relighting.
Keep your candle wicks trimmed to 1/4" at all times to avoid high flames and soot. Do not leave the wick trimmings in the wax .
Place all burning candles on heat and flame resistant surfaces, as all containers can get very hot.
Do not move a lit candle.
Keep candles away from children, pets and objects that can be flammable.
Do not put anything in your candles, and keep any stray objects (ribbon, string, packaging, etc) out of your candles.
Keep your candles away from drafts-they will cause your candle to burn unevenly and present a fire hazard.
Do not blow out your candle, instead snuff out candles, as blowing may allow lit pieces of wick to land on a flammable surface.
That being said, enjoy!
