Candle Safety

Couture Brands takes candle care and maintenance seriously. We urge consumers to be careful and attentive when burning candles. Failure to use candles as directed can lead to accidental fires. We recommend following the National Candle Association’s “Candle Fire Safety Rules” for burning candles safely.

See link for complete guidelines:


Burning Recommendations

Always keep a burning candle within sight.

Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.

Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.


Trim Wicks

Trim wicks to a quarter inch each time before burning.

Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and debris.

We like to trim our wicks with the candle tilted down so the wax will be free of debris.


General Safety

Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans, and air currents.

Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.

Never touch a burning candle or move a votive or container candle when the wax is liquid.

Keep candles away from walls.

Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder.

Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another.

Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle.

Never extinguish candles with water.

Make sure a candle is completely extinguished and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.

Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly or the flame becomes too high.

Failure to follow these directions can lead to accidental fires.
