- Ensure that the candle is placed on a stable and level surface on a non-flammable pad.
- After lighting a candle, allow the candle to burn until the wax melts to the edges of the container creating a "memory" and thus preventing the formation of a tunnel around the wick.
- Keep the wick at a length of approx. 0.5cm to prevent it from creating smoke and from moving away from the center of the container. Cut the wick only with special scissors, a so-called trimmer for the wick, which will prevent unwanted burned pieces of wick from falling into the wax. When burning a candle for a longer time the wick may bend. If this happens the candle must be extinguished, the wick shortened to a height of 0.5cm and, if necessary, lighted again or allowed to cool. If you keep the wick at the necessary height the candle will burn out cleanly and nicely. If the upper edge of glass gets smokey, let the glass cool then wipe it clean with a paper towel.
- Never extinguish the candles with water - the glass container may burst.
- Do not let the candle burn out to the base - it must be extinguished at least 0.5 cm before burning out.
- Do not move the burning candle.
- Be very careful if you are using a candle in the event of a power outage - especially if you want to use it as a source of light while you reconnect electricity or while you look for something needed; e.g. in a closet where there are clothes and other flammable items.
- Never use the candle as a night light.
- If the wick appears to be off-center, put the candle out and move the wick back to the center with a non-flammable object
- Do not use a candle when drafts are near flammable objects and heat sources, near curtains, bedding, carpets, books, papers and other flammable decorations and items.
- Protect from children and pets!
- Never leave a lighted candle unattended.
- Massage candles and other body aromatherapy products are not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women and people diagnosed by a doctor or who are taking prescription medication.
Candles can also be used for massages. Light the candle, let it burn for at least 20 minutes (longer if necessary to get enough wax for a massage) until the wax is melted and then put the candle flame out. Pour the necessary amount of wax into the palm (not directly on the body) and use to massage. In case of allergies try the wax on the forearm or wrist first. If you do not experience any reactions you can use a candle to massage your feet, back, arms or just on a part of your body that hurts. Wax is also pleasant to be used as a hand cream. Massage candles and other body aromatherapy products are not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women and people diagnosed by a doctor or who are taking prescription medication.
