Candles are poured with 100% cotton core wicks that are naturally coated. To properly care for your candle, trim the wick ¼ of an inch before lighting. Do not allow foreign materials such as glitter or floral toppings to get near the wick. Burn your candle on a level surface that is fire resistant. Do not burn your candle for more than four hours at a time and always keep it within sight. Stop burning your candle when it has reached the lower quarter of the glass to avoid glass shattering from excessive heat.
