We want you to enjoy your Carriage Candles and use them safely. Please review these tips to ensure your maximum pleasure and protection.

  • Remove all packaging before lighting.
  • Always place candles on nonporous, flat, flame-retardant surfaces.
  • Burn your candle for only two to three hours at a time for the best burn time.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep out of reach from children and pets and ensure everyone in the family understands the rules of safe candle use.
  • Never let children play with candles.
  • Do not move or tilt a burning candle. Glass containers may be hot.
  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Never burn candles near a draft, vent or air current (ceiling fans can cause drafts) and avoid excessive vibrations.
  • Keep wicks trimmed to one-eighth to one-quarter inch at all times. If you accidentally trim the wick too short, carefully dig out a small amount around each wick and relight.
  • Do not continue to burn the candle when the wax content is less than a half-inch from the container bottom to prevent possible heat damage to the counter or surface. Candlewicks normally trim naturally at about three-eighths of an inch at a time.
  • If the candle begins to smoke, extinguish the candle. Then trim the wick, remove the trimmings and relight the candle.
  • If you have a smoky smell after extinguishing the candle, use a candlesnuffer. Or, push the ends of the wicks, one at a time, into the melted wax pool with a toothpick. This will extinguish the candles and eliminate the smoke.
  • Always check the jar for cracks, chips or hairline fractures and discontinue use if damaged.
  • Keep the wax pool clean and free of matches, wick trimmings and other debris.
  • Carefully extinguish the candle before replacing the lid. Never use the lid to extinguish the candle or to use as a placeholder. One of the safest ways to extinguish a candle is to use a candlesnuffer or wick dipper, which helps prevent hot wax from spattering. Never use water to extinguish the candle, as water can cause the hot wax to spatter and make the jar break.
  • Candles will fade if left in direct sunlight or spotlights for extended periods of time.
