Important! Crystal Candle Care 101

Crystals and Candles - are a girls new favorite gift.

I want to touch base on common questions and maybe something you didn't know about how to care for your candle properly. 

Will the crystals burn in my candle?


How do I remove the crystals? 

Please wait until wax is cool and use a silver spoon to remove crystals from jar or tin. 

Can I remove crystals prior to lighting the candle?

Yes you may. 

How long should I leave my candle lit for?

It is recommended that candles do not burn for longer than four hours and cool for at least two hours before relighting.

 Candle Care 101:

  • Trim candle wicks to ¼ inch each time before burning.
  • Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • NEVER burn a candle unsupervised - ALWAYS MONITOR THE FLAME!
  • Herbs in your candle may catch fire, this is generally okay but the flame should ALWAYS be supervised.
  • Simply snuff/suffocate the candle flame out if you have a concern DO NOT SPRAY WATER.

 Trim Your Wick

Proper maintenance extends the life of your candle! Start trimming your wick dipper with a wick dipper to minimize smoke and soot.
