Candle Care and Safety Tips

Here are your top tips for using your ITZ candles to their fullest potential!


To get the best experience, we recommend following these guidelines: 

  1. Upon first use, burn until the entire surface has turned to liquid wax. This helps prolong the life of your candle and prevents tunneling.
  2. Trim wick to 1/8'' before each lighting. This maintains an even and clean burn every time.
  3. Burn for no more than 3 hours at a time.
  4. Always keep candles in sight when lit. NEVER burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire such as furniture, drapes, books, paper or any other flammable material.
  5. NEVER leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Make sure the wick amber is no longer glowing when doing so.
  6. Always burn candles in a well ventilated room. Do not burn too many candles at the same time in a small room or 'tight' areas of living where air exchange is limited.
  7. Put in areas away from drafts, open air vents or ceiling fans. This will prevent rapid burning and flare-ups.
  8. Be aware that candles, containers and/or wax can become hot when in use.
  9. Always burn candles on a stable, heat resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlaying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
  10. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  11. Keep wax pool free from wick and other debris at all times.
  12. Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
  13. Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn't burning properly. Cool, align and trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
  14. Never burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish flame if it comes too close to the container.
  15. Extinguish candle carefully, allow it to cool completely before touching or moving.
  16. We recommend to use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. Never use water as it can cause wax to splatter or glass to break.
  17. Always read and follow the manufacturer's use and safety introductions carefully.
