Safety and Use Instructions
To extend the life and enjoyment of your candle: LOS ANGELES CANDLE COMPANY candles are made from the highest quality natural ingredients and produce a soft light and a wonderful scent. For maximum life, we urge you to follow these simple instructions: On first use, light for one minute, then extinguish, wait till cooled and trim wick to ¼” before relighting. For best burn results, and to minimize soot, always keep the wick trimmed to ¼” throughout the life of the product. Burn 1 – 1.5 hours at a time – allow the candle to cool fully, and always remove any wick trimmings or detritus, before relighting. Keep out of direct sunlight to minimize fading and or melting..
Information about our Hand Poured Candles
Because each and every one of our candles is hand poured there may be slight imperfections and some pieces may have slight differences. This by no means affects the quality of our product. Our high-quality all natural soy wax blend slightly contracts and expands with the environments temperature which will sometimes cause the wax to pull away from the surface of your glass jar. This movement can result in a bubbled appearance. Once your candle is lit the wax will begin to warm and expand and these bubbles you may see from the outside of the jar will disappear.
Using Wicks with Hand Poured Soy
While burning, our candle wicks will develop a black mushroom like appearance if the wick is not trimmed properly. This Appearance is caused by the superior wax blends and the high volume of custom blended fragrance that’s made LOS ANGELES CANDLE COMPANY so popular. Our highly refined Soy wax blends have low natural oil content, allowing them to fully absorb 2-3 times more fragrance oil than most candles – leaving the surface oil-free while ensuring superb scent ‘throw’ while burning. The wick works like a straw while the candle is burning, drawing the fragrance and essential oils through the wax and releasing the wonderful aromas right into the air. That funny looking wick appearance is a constant reminder to you of our high levels of fragrance, and a symbol of our dedication to quality and your enjoyment. When your wick has this appearance or a ball looking thing forms, gently blow out the flame, let cool, trim the wick to ¼” and relight. As with any candle, without the simple attention of keeping the wick trimmed, that wick ball thing may create an oversized flame and cause smoke.
For adult use only.To prevent fire, keep any burning candle within sight. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never burn a candle near anything that can catch fire. Burn only on a stable and heat resistant surface. All non-container candles must be burned in an appropriate container. Do not burn on a heat absorbing surface like glass or marble, and discontinue use when the wax is ½” from the bottom, or molded (or container candle’s container may break). Keep out of drafts, and keep the wick trimmed, or candle will smoke. If flame becomes too large, extinguish the candle and trim the wick. We cannot be held responsible for damage caused by soot, smoke or fire, or improper use or maintenance, and expressly disclaim responsibility for any related damage. Do not touch, move or trim candle while hot. Always remove all packaging from candle, and candle from all packaging before lighting. No matter how good they smell, candles are not edible! Please respect the fact that candles create their beauty using fire; burn carefully and enjoy!
