Candle Care

Fair trade candles lit in dining room handmade by Propserity Candle's women artisans

We really love candles. Sometimes we’ll have more than 20 alight all at once, filling the room with peaceful radiance. Candles create an ambiance no other lighting can equal... a tranquility that’s as fitting for a boisterous dinner party as it is for a soothing bath or romantic evening.

We also like to be safe, and for our candles to burn beautifully for a long time. Here are a few suggestions on how to love and care for your candles.

• Always keep wicks centered in the melted wax, and regularly trim to ¼” tall… a quick trim between lightings is best (using a wick trimmer makes it super easy, especially when reaching into a narrow vessel).

• T he first burn is the most important. Allow wax to melt completely to the insides of the vessel before extinguishing – this helps prevent “tunneling”.

• Avoid burning any candle more than 3-4 hours at a time. Blow them out and allow to cool before relighting.

 Using a wick dipper is the easy, smoke-free way to extinguish your candles. It’s a simple tool that dips the flame into melted wax and pulls it back up, ready for the next lighting. Once you try one, you'll love it.


A few important safety tips:

•  Never leave a burning candle unattended.

•  Do not burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.

•  Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.

 Know when it’s time to say goodbye.. stop using a candle when only ½” of wax remains.

 Be sure to place candle on a stable, heat resistant surface before lighting. For candles in metal vessels, using a cork or stone coaster is best as they tend to get hotter than others.

 Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and debris, including burnt matches.

 Avoid air drafts which can cause sooting and uneven burning.

 Do not move or touch a burning candle.

 Remember to burn all candles in a well-ventilated room.

 Never fall asleep to candlelight!

 Be sure to extinguish and let cool a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Save Save Save
