We take great care in producing LJÓS candles with top-quality natural materials to ensure a pleasant and long-lasting experience. However, proper candle care is important to get the most out of each burn. 

Here are some of our recommendations to help you enjoy your candles safely: 

Safety First!

Always place the candle on a stable and heat-resistant surface that is level. Make sure to keep the candle at least 25 cm (10 inches) away from anything that can catch fire. Avoid placing candles in drafty areas or in direct sunlight. Always burn our candles at room temperature. 

The First Burn 

During the first burn, allow the candle to burn for 2-4 hours. This will prevent tunneling and ensure an even burn throughout the life of the candle. 

Subsequent Burns 

For subsequent burns, let the candle burn for 2-3 hours at a time. Avoid burning the candle for more than 4 hours at a time to prevent overheating and ensure the candle lasts longer. 

Trim the Wick 

Before lighting the candle, trim the wick to 5 mm (¼ inch) to help control the flame and prevent soot from forming on the jar or wall. Keep your candle wax clean of any debris.

Extinguishing the Flame 

To extinguish the flame, use a snuffer or gently blow out the flame. Avoid blowing the candle out with force as this can cause hot wax to splatter. Once the candle is extinguished, allow it to cool completely before replacing the lid. This will help to ensure that the essential oils do not evaporate ever so slightly. 

We hope these tips help you enjoy your LJÓS candles safely and get the most out of each burn. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
