Precautions: Always place the lit candle on a heat-resistant surface. Never burn the candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Burn the candle in a ventilated area, but keep the lit candle away from drafts. Trim the wick to 1/2" before each lighting. Stop use when 1/2" of wax remains. Keep the candle wax free of wax trimmings, matches, or any foreign objects. Do not touch or move the candle while it is lit, or until the wax hardens. Never leave a lit candle unattended. Burn at least one hour per inch of candle diameter each time the candle is lit to ensure the best burning efficiency. Do not burn longer than four hours at one time. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
