Safety and Burning Tips from Yankee Candle Company
Yankee Candle is proud to use only the finest quality ingredients and materials in the manufacturing of their candles so that you will have the maximum enjoyment and pleasure as you burn them. It's important, however, that you use candles responsibly to ensure their safe use. Please follow the guidelines to keep Yankee candles a bright and beautiful part of your life.
- Remove all packaging before lighting.
- Place on a protected, heat-resistant, dry surface, away from anything that can catch fire, and out of reach of children and pets. Use holders designed for the particular candle style.
- Trim wick(s) to 1/8" before lighting.
- If smoking occurs, blow candle out. Trim wick(s), remove trimmings, and relight.
- Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, or any combustible material. Keep the wick centered. Avoid drafts.
- Keep burning candles within sight at all times.
- Keep all matches and lighters out of the reach of children.
- Teach everyone in the family the rules of safe candle use.
- Handle with care; glass containers are fragile. Avoid glass-to-glass contact when removing or replacing the lid. Do not use if the jar is cracked, chipped or scratched. Do not refill with wax.
- Do not allow the flame to touch the side of the jar. The jar may become hot. Handle carefully.
- To minimize wax left on the sides of the jar, burn 3 hours at a time; it is normal for some wax to be left. The amount will vary per color, fragrance and burning conditions.
- Prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface by discontinuing use when 1/2" of wax remains.
- Extinguish carefully before replacing the lid.
- When wax pool reaches the candle’s edge, extinguish flame and allow candle to harden before relighting. This will prevent dripping.
- To prevent possible dripping: avoid drafts, excessive vibrations or nearby heat sources.
- Candle (hurricane) lamps may cause dripping due to the build up of heat. We suggest using bobeche, decorative accessories designed to catch dripping wax.
- Be sure tapers are straight, and set them firmly in their holders.
- Trim the taper's wick to 1/8" before lighting.
Scented Tea Lights
- Do not burn in an enclosed space like a potpourri pot. For this purpose use Yankee® Tart® Warmers (unscented tea lights), and be sure the burner is well-ventilated.
- If wick smokes or builds up carbon, extinguish flame and remove the carbon before relighting.
- Burn only in an appropriate holder. Do not burn freestanding.
Wax Potpourri Tarts®
- Place one or more Tarts in a dry potpourri pot, and light the unscented tea light candle beneath. We recommend using Tart Warmers, which burn with a low, controlled flame, ideal for potpourri pots. When melted, the Tart® will release its wonderful fragrance.
- To change fragrances, use a potholder to pick up the potpourri pot and pour the liquid wax into a lined wastebasket. Or, you may harden the wax in a freezer, and pop it out into the palm of your hand.
- Electric potpourri pots may overheat the wax, and are not recommended. Use a well-ventilated, candlelit potpourri pot, without a lid. The pot should have at least a 2-1/2" top opening.
