Candle Care

  • When lighting for the first time burn until wax melts across the entire surface to the sides of the vessel (this prevents tunneling, and creates an even burn for the duration of the candle’s ‘life’) This may take up to 2-4 hours.
  • Trim wick to ¼ of an inch before each burn to promote an even burn, steady flame, and limit sooting/mushrooming of wick.
  • To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Trim the candle wick after each burn. This is very important to prevent the candles from smoking on the next burn or from burning the sides of the glass. We recommend trimming the wick 1/4″.
  • If soot ever forms on the inside of the vessel, extinguish the candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Trim the wick and relight.
  • Do not blow out your candle. Extinguish with a snuffer or bend the wick into the melted wax.
  • Always store your candles in a cool, dark, and dry place.
  • Always burn candle within sight.
  • Rhea Candle Co. is not responsible for the misuse of our candles.
