Candle safety - your Purely Nordic candle

Get the most out of your Purely Nordic candle

  • It is important to allow your candle to burn all the way to the edge before extinguishing.  This ensures a clean, even burn throughout the life of the candle and keeps it from creating a tunnel down the middle.
  • Trim the wick to 0.5 cm each time the candle is lit. This helps prevent the flame from getting too large and burning improperly.
  • Place burning candles at least 6 cm apart from one another.
  • Don’t burn a candle for more than four hours at a time.

Instructions for burning

The following guidelines apply to the burning of all candles including Purely Nordic candles:

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.
  • Keep burning candles away from flammable materials, children and pets.
  • Don’t place a burning candle near clothing, books curtains or anything flammable.
  • Do not place candles on or near other heat sources.
  • Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax.
  • A burning candle should not be used as a nightlight.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1 cm wax remains in the container.
  • Keep candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings.
