Alena’s Candle Safety Tips

Our Candles might be pretty, but they’re still miniature fires. Follow Alena’s Candle Safety Tips and, some basic guidelines to ensure your candle-burning experience is a pleasant & safe one.

Before Burning 

  • Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning

  • Use a Wick Trimmer to trim your wicks as Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning.

  • Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface.

  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches, and debris at all times.

While Burning 

  • Never touch or move a burning candle.

  • Always keep the candle within your sight. If you are going to leave the room, be sure to first blow out all candles.

  • Do not burn the candle longer than 4 hours at a time.

  • Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets.

  • Do not leave candles burning with no one in the room.

  • Extinguish all candles before you go to sleep.

  • Teach your children to be careful around open flames. Make sure they understand that candles are not toys, or something they can eat or drink.


When Extinguishing 

  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle to prevent hot wax from splattering.

  • Make sure the candle is completely extinguished before leaving the room.

  • Don’t touch the candle until it has completely cooled.

  • Never drop your matches into the candle and make sure to put it into water before you dispose of your Alena’s fancy matches.
