Always trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting and keep debris out of wax pool. The first time you light your candle, let it burn for 3-4 hours to allow the melted wax to reach the edge of the container to prevent your candle from tunneling. Before lighting, set candle on heat-resistant surface and avoid drafts. 

To Prevent Fire & Serious Injury:

Always burn within sight and extinguish before leaving room. Never burn candle (2 ft minimum) near flammable objects i.e. books, curtains, fabrics, etc. Always avoid burning candle for more than 4 hour-intervals. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/4 inch of wax remains in the container. Keep away from children and pets. Don’t extinguish with water. Always let wax harden before relighting, touching or moving.
