Does Bath & Body Works Have Any Tips for How to Safely Use Candles?

Don't touch your candle while hot! Never touch or move a Candle while lit; wait until wax hardens.

Keep an eye on your candles! Always burn Candles where you can see them (no longer than 3-4 hours at a time) and never near anything that can catch fire. Candles will burn slower and more evenly when kept in draft-free areas. Extinguish the flames before you leave the room. Never extinguish the flame with water.

Keep your Candles clean! Trim wicks to ¼ inch before you light them — every time! Straight, short wicks make your Candles melt evenly. And properly dispose of used matches and wick trimmings instead of leaving them in the Candle.

Keep Candles out of reach! Watch pets and children to avoid Candles being accidentally knocked over.
