How To Burn Candles Safely

Burning soy candles can create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere in your home, but it's important to practice safety when using candles to prevent fires or accidents. Here are some tips on how to burn soy candles safely:

  1. Always keep candles within sight and away from flammable objects, such as curtains, bedding, or furniture.

  2. Place candles on a stable surface, and make sure they are placed on a non-flammable holder or plate to catch any wax drippings.

  3. Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.

  4. Trim the wick to 1/4 inch before each use to prevent excessive flame and smoke.

  5. Allow the wax to melt evenly across the surface of the candle, and avoid burning the candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

  6. Do not touch or move the candle while it's burning or the wax is still hot.

  7. Extinguish candles by using a candle snuffer or gently blowing out the flame. Avoid using water to extinguish a candle, as it can cause hot wax to splatter or crack the glass.

  8. Do not burn candles in drafty areas or near open windows.

By following these safety tips, you can enjoy the warm and inviting glow of soy candles in your home without the risk of accidents or fire hazards.
