  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or fall asleep with the candle still burning.
  • Never leave a burning candle in a child's bedroom and keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Never burn a candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Do not position the candle next to flammable materials, heat sources or electrical equipment.
  • Avoid burning candles where there is a draught which will often generate candle smoke.
  • Never move a burning candle. Wait until the wax has cooled and set before moving. 
  • Do not burn candles completely. Discard after they have burnt to 20mm of their base or holder.
  • Do not use if the glass container is broken, chipped or cracked.
  • Avoid storing your candle for longer than 12 months from the date of purchase. After this point candles can diffuse and burn less than expected.
