Candle Safety + Care

Properly storing and caring for your candles before and after use will ensure optimal performance and minimize the risk of fire. We at DopeWicks recommend the following:

  • Store candles in a cool, dry place that is out of direct sunlight.

  • To prevent fire and serious injury, always burn candle within sight.

  • Keep away from drafts and vibrations.

  • Keep out of the reach of children and pets.

  • Never burn candle on or near flammable objects.



  • On initial burn, allow candle to burn until the wax pool reaches the edge of the container.
  • Before each use, trim the wick to approximately 1/4" to ensure proper burn.
  • To prevent overheating, do not burn candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Before each use, remove any debris (trimmings, matches, dust) from candle container.
  • Discontinue use of candle when less than 1/4" inch of wax remains in the container.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended, near a draft, or accessible by children or pets.
