Warnings + Instructions

Our unique soy candles are artisan made, and hand-poured in small batches, are clean burning, cruelty-free and sustainable.  They contain no chemical fragrances, they are paraffin free and made with self trimming paper wicks, no colorants, dyes or preservatives.  Made with 100% plant material, handcrafted in Los Angeles.  Protect your family, be aware of toxic ingredients in your candles.  

For optimal burn at first lighting, melt entire wax surface to create a wax-pool from edge to edge to keep candle from tunnelling. 

Failure to follow candle instructions could result in fire hazard or injury.  To prevent a fire never leave a burning candle unattended.  Keep out of reach of children, pets and flammable materials.  Trim wick to 1/4” prior to lighting and remove wick trimmings.  Never burn longer than 4 hours at a time.  If misused glass may shatter.  Container will be hot when candle is lit, allow it to cool before moving or relighting.  Burn times may vary as atmospheric conditions differ.

 

National Candle Associations Candle Safety Rules

Always keep a burning candle within sight.  Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep.  Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.  Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.  Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.  Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.  Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning.  Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning and dripping.  Always use a candle-holder specifically designed for candle use.  The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.  Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface.  This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.  Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.  Always read and follow the manufacturer’s use and safety instructions carefully.  Don’t burn a candle longer than the manufacturer recommends.  Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents.  This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting.  Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.  Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.  Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.  Don’t burn a candle all the way down.  Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container.  For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains or ½ inch if in a container.  Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.  Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder.  It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.  Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another.  This helps ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts to cause improper burning.  Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle.  It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax splatters.  Never extinguish candles with water.  The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might cause a glass container to break.  Be very careful if using candles during a power outage.  Flashlights and other battery-powered lights are safer sources of light during a power failure.  Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high.  The candle isn’t burning properly.  Cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.  Never use a candle as a night light.

Allergies + Sensitivities 

Our products are free of chemicals, however some individuals may be allergic or sensitive to certain ingredients in beauty products or cosmetics, even if those ingredients are safe for most people.  Most fragrance formulas may have some components, which may have a potential to cause allergic reactions, or sensitivities for some people.  Have confidence in knowing our products are chemical-free, although if you have sensitive skin or allergies inquire with your allergist or physician.  Our signature scent, Ancient MuseTM contains no photosensitizing ingredients.  For safety apply only a small portion of our elixirs to the topside of your wrist, to test before using on the rest of your skin.

FDA does not have the same legal authority to require allergen labeling for cosmetics as for food.  If you’re concerned about fragrance sensitivities, you may want to choose products like ours that are chemical fragrance free.  Even though you may check the ingredients list carefully, ‘trade secrets’ may not be listed, be aware of this when purchasing chemical fragrance products.
