CANDLE CARE

Our Candle Care Guide

At Maison Rose, we aim to ensure that you thoroughly enjoy using our candles while following safety guidelines to maximize the experience. Please take note of the following Candle Care Guidelines. 

Before Burning

- Before each candle use, trim the wick at least ¼ inch. It will prevent dripping, uneven burning or flaring.

- Keep the wax pool free of debris or wick trimmings that may have fallen in.

- The candle should be placed on a solid and heat-resistant surface to prevent possible heat damage to surfaces.

- To avoid uneven burning and excessive dripping, keep the candle away from vents and air currents and avoid drafts.

- It is best advised not to burn your candle for more than 4 hours per use.

While Burning

- A burning candle should never be left unattended or in use while sleeping. Please extinguish all candles before exiting a room or before sleeping.

- A burning candle should not be touched or moved while the wax is still liquified.

- Avoid burning your candle completely to the bottom.

- When using multiple candles, you want to ensure that they do not melt one another. Space each candle out with a minimum of 3 inches in between.

- If you notice that the candle flame is too high or flickering consistently, extinguish it. Allow the candle to cool down, and then trim the wick.

- Avoid burning your candle around or near anything that could catch fire, such as furniture, bedding, curtains, decor, newspapers, etc.

- Place your candle out of the reach of children and pets. Avoid putting it in places where somebody can easily knock it over.

When Extinguishing

- Never use water to extinguish a candle. With this comes the possibility of the hot wax splattering and the candle jar shattering.

- Please ensure your candle is completely out before exiting a room.

- Avoid touching the candle until it cools, as it can burn your hand.
