CANDLE CARE
& SAFETY

To optimize your Époque candle burning experience, we recommend these guidelines.

  • Upon first ever use, burn for at least two hours, or until the entire surface has turned to liquid wax. This will help prolong the life of your candle.
     

  • Trim wick to 1/8” before each lighting. This will maintain an even and clean burn.
     

  • Burn for no more than 3-4 hours at a time.
     

  • Always keep candles in sight when in use. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire such as furniture, drapes, books, paper, flammable materials, etc.
     

  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.

  • Choose an area away from drafts, open air vents or ceiling fans. This will help avoid rapid burning and prevent flare-ups.
     

  • Recommend to use a candle snuffer or wick dipper to extinguish a candle. Never use water as it can cause wax to splatter or glass to break.
     

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
     

  • Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, align and trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
     

  • Never burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish flame if it comes too close to the container.
     

  • Extinguish candle carefully, allow it to cool completely before touching or moving.
     

  • Never leave your candle in direct sunlight as the UV rays may affect the appearance of the candle.
