Firstly, and most importantly, here are some safety issues to consider before
using your candles:
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Never place a burning candle near something flammable.
Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets.
Always place your candle on a heat-resistant, flameproof
surface before lighting it.
Use caution when blowing out your candle. Blowing with force
could cause the melted wax to splatter. For safest results, extinguish your
candle using a candlesnuffer.
To prevent smoking, trim wick to ¼ inch
prior to each use and keep trimmed.

known as "The melt pool") covers the top of the candle. In
further lightings, keep the burning time down to a maximum of
three or four hours. This insures a clean, efficient burning
cycle for the life of the candle, and also guards against
over-perfuming and smoking of the candle. If smoking does
occur, extinguish your candle (remember – don’t blow!) by
pressing the wick into the wax, and then repositioning the
wick. Wait for your candle to cool, and then re-trim to ¼
