Safe Candle Usage Guidelines

Safe Usage for Glo Candles

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience with your coconut soy wax wooden wick candles from Glo Candle Bar Co., follow these guidelines. Each candle includes a safety label at the bottom for your reference.

  • Trim the Wick: Keep the wooden wick trimmed to 1/8 inch before each use to prevent excessive flickering and smoking.
  • Burn in a Safe Area: Always burn your candle on a heat-resistant surface, away from flammable materials and drafts.
  • Keep Away from Children and Pets: Ensure candles are out of reach to avoid accidents.
  • Do Not Burn for Too Long: Limit burn sessions to 3-4 hours to prevent the candle from overheating and creating a large flame.
  • Never Leave Unattended: Always stay nearby while your candle is burning. Extinguish it if you need to leave the room.
  • Keep the Wax Pool Clean: Regularly remove any debris from the melted wax to ensure a clean burn.
  • Allow Wax to Melt Evenly: Let the wax melt across the entire surface before extinguishing to prevent tunneling. If the wax does not melt evenly, use a piece of aluminum foil to create a "tent" around the top of the candle, leaving an opening at the top. This will help distribute heat evenly and melt the wax around the edges.
  • Understanding Scent Throw: Our candles may have a softer scent throw compared to synthetic fragrances due to the natural ingredients used. The scent throw can vary based on room size, airflow, and personal sensitivity. Placing our candles in a smaller room will result in stronger scent throw.
  • Maintain Scent Performance: To prevent scent blindness, alternate between different candle scents on a day to day basis.
  • Extinguish Properly: Use a snuffer or blow gently to extinguish the candle. Do not use water as it can cause the hot wax to splatter and the container to break.
  • Avoid Drafts: Keep candles away from vents, fans, and open windows to prevent uneven burning and soot.
  • Store Properly: Store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain their quality.

Warning: Do not put out your candle with water. Doing so can cause the hot wax to splatter, potentially leading to burns or container breakage. Always follow the recommended methods for extinguishing your candle.

By following these safety tips, you can enjoy your Glo Candle Bar Co. candles safely and maintain their scent for a longer-lasting aromatic experience. For additional safety information, please refer to the safety label at the bottom of each candle.
