Candle Care

There are a few candle maintenance items that should be done in order to keep your candle burning at its best. These steps help to ensure that your candle is burning cleanly, evenly, and safely.


Before lighting your Happy Scents candle...

  1. Trim & center the wick to ¼ inch every time before use. This will help to prevent flaring & excessive soot and smoke.

  2. Keep the candle surface free of debris such as wick trimmings and matches.

  3. Always burn on a heat resistant, level & stable surface. Place the bottom of candle into the lid while burning for additional surface protection.

  4. Place candle in an area free from drafts to help prevent sooting, uneven burning, and excessive candle consumption.

  5. Burn your candle no less than 2 hours each time you light it. This allows the melt pool time to form and helps the candle burn evenly. Soy wax has a memory so make sure you have a full melt pool to the edge each time! 


While Burning your Happy Scents candle, please…

  1. Always have the lit candle within your sight. Please extinguish the candle before leaving the room.

  2. Keep the candle away from anything that can catch fire. Never burn the candle on or near flammable items such as books, paper, drapes, bedding, furniture, etc.

  3. Keep the candle away from children & pets. Do not place the candle where the candle could possibly be knocked over or reached by pets & children.

  4. Do not touch or move the candle container when lit, it may be hot.

  5. Do not burn the candle longer than 4 hours at one time.

  6. Stop using candle altogether when ¼ inch of wax is left in the tin.


When extinguishing your Happy Scents candle, please…

  1. If blowing the candle out, please do so gently and at a distance so the hot wax is not disturbed and does not splatter onto you or surroundings.. The use of a candle snuffer is the safest method to extinguish a candle and is highly recommended.

  2. Never use water to put a candle out. The hot wax may splatter.

  3. Make sure the candle is fully out before leaving the room.

  4. Do not move or touch the candle until the melt pool has solidified and completely cooled.

  5. Note that discoloration of the wax may be noticeable after burning.


Thank you for safely enjoying your Happy Scents candles!
