Candle Safety

Hand painted candle safety and tips. 

 

It is recommended that your candle remains wrapped, and stored in a cool place, out of direct sunlight prior to display and /or burning. 

Please also display your candle out of direct sunlight and away from windowsills.

Never leave a lit candle burning unattended and burn your candles out of reach from children and pets.

Always leave at least 10cm between burning candles.

Burn candles using the correct holder, on a stable surface, and away from any draughts.

Trim your wick to 5mm before lighting. Due to paint on the candle this can be drawn up onto the wick. If this happens and your wick becomes elongated, and causing a large flame, distinguish your candle, and trim the wick before relighting. If this is not also done, it will cause the candle to burn very fast due to the heat centred on top of the candle. 

Do not burn your taper or pillar candles beyond the last inch.
