SHIPPING: We try hard to keep shipping costs down. Any shipping charges in excess of $1 that Etsy calculates will be refunded to you at the time the shipping label is created. Because glass candles are heavy, having several candles shipped to one location via USPS Regional or Flat Rate is the most economical option.

CANDLE CARE: For the first burn, it is very important to burn the candle for at least 3-4 hours to allow the melt pool to reach the glass. This will prevent tunneling and give your candle a longer, more efficient life. Also, please make sure the wicks are trimmed with each lighting or when the flame starts to flicker wildly or you see black soot coming from the end – that means your wick is too long!

SAFETY: We cannot stress enough how important it is to keep the wicks trimmed on our candles (as well as any others you buy). This reduces soot and doesn't cause the flame to flicker wildly, and extends the life of the candle.
Do not burn candles unattended.
Burn on a flat, heat resistant surface, away from flammable items.
Keep children and pets away from burning candle.
Do not touch hot, liquid wax.
Keep wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches or other debris
Limit the burn time of your candle to 4-6 hrs maximum to prevent the glass from overheating.
Do not light the candle when less than 1/4" of wax remains
CANDLE CARE: We use a candle wax specifically made for containers. It is designed to completely liquify. It is best to burn the candle 1-1.5 hrs for every inch in diameter.
It make take several hours for the liquid melt pool to reach the edge of the container.
It is suggested to allow the melt pool to reach the edge every time you light it. This will prevent tunneling and allow you to get more burn time out of your candle.
There should be NO flickering or wisps of smoke from the wick. This means the wick is too long or the candle is in a draft. These flickers allow small amounts of unburned carbon particles (soot) to escape (regardless if the wax is soy or paraffin)
The flame should be calm & steady - this means the burning process is in balance and the wick is burning efficiently and providing the longest life to your candle.
If too much or too little air reaches the candle flame, it will also cause sooting
Wicks that are too long can cause a flame to grow too long and flare. It is EXTREMELY important to trim your wicks to 1/4" before every use.
If you like to burn your candles for a long period of time, you may need to extinguish the flame, trim the wick, and relight it to keep the proper burning length.
OTHER CANDLE INFO: Our candles are designed to scent an average sized room. If the area where it is at is very large and open the fragrance may not be very strong.
We fragrance our candles with the maximum recommended amount of fragrance oils suggested by the manufacturer. Some fragrances are simply stronger than others. If you feel the scent is too light, the room might be too large for our size candle. Try putting it in a smaller room or by add'l candles.
Sometimes you get used to the scent and can no longer smell it as strongly. Just step outside for a bit, take a few deep breaths of fresh air and go back into the room where the candle is - chances are you will be able to smell it again.
They all come in an 8 oz glass mason jar which can easily be cleaned and repurposed for storage (non-food) uses. We encourage you to find creative and useful ways to upcycle your empty candle container!
