Hurricane Irene Candle Safety Tips

As Hurricane Irene approaches, we wanted to provide important candle safety tips. As we all know, batteries only last so long but hand-poured, highly scented candles burn strong! Here are some important tips you should follow at all times for safe candle handling:
  1. Never leave a burning candle unattended. If you must leave the room, blow out the candle.
  2. Keep burning candles away from open windows and drafts.
  3. Always keep your wick(s) trimmed to 1/4" to avoid a large flame.
  4. Keep your candle on a flat surface.
  5. Place a hot plate under your candle. Especially when it is burning toward the bottom of the jar.
  6. Ensure that pets and children cannot reach a burning candle.

If you follow these simple tips you will be able to enjoy our candles safely. We wiest of luck and safety to all enduring the storm!
