Candle Tips

Enjoying candles is fairly easy but there are some very important safety precautions to consider as well as some tips and tricks to help keep your candles burning long and clean until the last minute.

Candle Safety Tips & Recommendations
Remember, a lighted candle is an open flame. Be careful. Always follow the basic rules of fire safety when burning candles.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Always keep a lit candle in your sight.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Always use an appropriate candleholder and place it on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
  • Read the label and follow the manufacturer's use and safety instructions carefully.
  • Trim the wick to ΒΌ inch before each use.
  • Burn candles in a well-ventilated room, but away from drafts and air currents.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Extinguish any candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes too high. Cool, trim the wick, check for drafts, and re-light.
  • Don't allow the flame to come too close to the holder or container.
  • Never move a lighted candle, and never move a votive or container candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Place lighted candles at least 3 inches apart.
  • Keep any lighted candles away from any flammable materials such as hanging drapes or plants stands on a heat-resistant surface


    There are many uses for candles...below are a few of those uses:

    A Candle is Used for Light
    One of the most basic uses of candles is providing light. This is something that a person may not think of instantly because of our modern world. With the flick of a switch a florescent light bulb brightens the dark, the alkaline batteries of flashlights also do the trick. However, if you really want to brighten a gloomy room, light a candle.

    A Candle is Used for Aromatherapy
    Aromatherapy is also what people use candles for. It is believed that by smelling particular natural essential oils, a person may receive helpful healthy benefits. There are some pieces of equipment that allow these essential oils to evaporate so people could breathe them in. However, there are natural candles like BSaB candles which are all natural so much so that they release essential oils in the air. With that, a person can totally relax by just looking at a lit candle while breathing in the oils that are released in the air. Many spas use this type of candle as part of their business.


    A Candle is Used to Remember
    Here is a bit of trivia that you may not know yet: Candles are a universal symbol of remembering. This is the reason why people light candles when remembering loved ones who have passed away. This is also the reason why people light candles when offering prayers to the dearly departed.


    These are just a couple of ways on how to use a candle. There are plenty of other ways. BSaB candles are the best choice when it comes to choosing an natural or organic candle to use in your home. They are natural, organic, and safe.

    Burn only on a stable heat resistant surface. Keep from drafts. Do not burn candle when wax is less than 1/2 inch from bottom. Do not touch or move candle while burning, or if wax is hot. Never leave candle burning unattended. Keep out of reach of children.


    For best results burn candle for 4 hours at one time. Trim wick to 1/4 inch after candle has cooled. After candle has burned for several hours, bend in the top of the wax slightly to form small lips toward the center. Sides will continue to fold as candle burns. Burn candles only in candle holder. Do not leave any burning candle unattended.
