Vital candle safety information


Getting the most out of your candle -

Before lighting your candle for the first time, ensure the wick is trimmed to about 1cm in height. Always allow the candle to burn for at least 1 hour (or until the wax melts to most of the outside of the vessel) before extinguishing. (especially important for the first time use of a candle).

Never let your candle burn for longer than 4 hours at a time. Once the candle has cooled & hardened, it can be re lit again. 

Always ensure you candles are on a heat proof surface & never near draughty areas or near drapes or low lying flammable objects. 

NEVER allow you candle to burn completely to the bottom of the vessel. Always leave at least a couple of cm's of wax at the bottom of your vessel. Burning your candle too low to the bottom of the vessel can cause the vessel to crack or explode.
