Candle Safety

We take candle safely very seriously here at wild&true, and recommend that these handy tips below will help to keep you safe while enjoying our naturally scented candles.

  • Before lighting your candle for the first time, trim the wick down to about 5mm, repeat this action every time you relight a used candle
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets
  • Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface
  • Never burn a candle for more that four hours at a time
  • Do not burn a candle all the way down, we recommend that you stop using the candle once there is only 5mm of wax remaining in the container
  • Never touch or move a burning candle
  • Do not burn candles in a draught
  • Place the candle away from anything that can catch fire
  • Always keep the wax pool clear of debris and matches
  • Always burn candles at least 10mm away from other candles
