candle care

please be sure to follow these guidelines when using bones & co. candles.

  • Trim your wick to 1/8" before each and every burn. This ensures the your flame does not smoke, flicker too much or rise too high.
  • Your first burn should be 2-3 hours long in order to achieve full melting pool.  A full melting pool prevents tunneling (tunneling is access wax build up on the side of your vessels)
  • Never burn a candle for more than four hours at a time
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Keep your candle out of reach of children and pets.
  • Never burn your candle near anything that can catch fire.
  • Be sure that you place your candle on a stable, heat resistant surface.
  • Keep lit candles away from any window air vents or drafts.
  • Never burn your candle all the way down to the wick clip. Always leave 1/4 inch of wax in the bottom of the vessel.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Place burning candles at least 4 inches apart from one another.
  • Never use water to extinguish a candle.
