Candle Care

To prevent fire or personal injury, never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Burn candles on a heat resistant surface or in a suitable holder. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Burn in a well ventilated area but keep away from drafts or vents. Trim the wick to 1/4" each time before burning. Keep the wick centered and the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times. Do not burn longer then 4 hours at a time. Discontinue use when 1/2" wax remains at the bottom.

Tips for Burning Cachet Candles

Cachet Candles feature premium ingredients including a supreme quality soy/paraffin blended wax and 100% cotton safety wicks. Soy waxes tend to burn slower and cleaner than paraffin waxes do. 100% cotton wicks do not contain any type of metal core for rigidity and thus also tend to burn cleaner.

To maximize the performance of your candle and to ensure best results during each burn, these guidelines are suggested. Enjoy!

  • Before lighting your candle the first time, examine the length of the wicks. Both wicks should be ½” in length from the top of the candle.
  • If the wicks are too long, carefully trim the wicks to ½”. Wicks that are too long may tend to smoke. Do not cut one wick shorter than the other. The wicks should always be the same length during each burn to ensure an even burn and to avoid one wick sputtering out. Avoid trimming the wicks too short or the candle will not burn well.
  • On the initial lighting, your new candle should be burned until a full liquid pool or reservoir of wax has been formed around the full circumference of the candle.
  • On each subsequent burn, always burn long enough to allow a full liquid pool of wax to form around the entire surface of the candle before extinguishing.
  • When burning your candle, use a wick dipper to separate wicks so they remain the same distance apart as when you began the initial burn. Extinguishing your candle with a wick dipper will help eliminate smoking while coating the wick with a layer of wax which will enable the candle to light easier on the next burn. Be sure to dip the wick into the wax pool and then lift and straighten it at the same time.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and any other debris.
  • Keep candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans, and air currents. Burn only in well ventilated areas or rooms.
  • If your candle begins smoking for any reason, extinguish the candle, allow it to cool, trim the wicks if necessary, and then relight.
  • To protect counters and surfaces, use of a candle holder is recommended. The holder should be placed on a stable, even, heat resistant surface.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Although Cachet Candles include safety wicks and will self extinguish at a certain point, any burning candle should be kept in sight to avoid fire hazards.
  • Discontinue burning your candle when ½” of wax remained at the bottom of the jar.
  • Avoid placing your candle in direct sunlight or under florescent lighting as they may cause your candle to fade or discolor.
  • Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.
