By following these instructions and guidelines, you will be able to receive the maximum value from Lucky Penny Candles products. 

Safety Instructions

Your safety is our priority at Lucky Penny Candles. Please read the following instructions carefully and follow them to prevent any hazards.

  • Before lighting any candle, make sure to remove all the packaging.
  • Place the candles on a flat and non-flammable surface.
  • Always keep candles away from all other flammable products and away from the reach of young children and pets.
  • If possible, place the candle in the candle holder.
  • Keep wick(s) trimmed at least ¼ inch to prevent uneven burning.
  • Don't leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Keep a candle's burn pool clear of debris as it can catch alight or cause flaring. 
  • Do not try to move a candle when it is burning.
  • When the wick has burnt down to ¼ inch  from the base, it should be extinguished and discarded.
  • Don't use the candle if the jar has been damaged or there is a visual crack in the glass.

Candle Care

Candles are one of the beautiful gifts you can ever give or receive. By applying the following instructions, not only can you get the most out of your candles but keep them in the best shape possible.

  • Candles burn best in still air, but if you can't prevent draughts, rotate the candle regularly to avoid erratic burning and eventual collapsing of the candle.
  • Use a candle snuffer to prevent wicks from drifting off-center and avoid wax splashes. That would help increase the candle's burning time. Blowing out the candle is not recommended, as the liquid wax may splatter, and the wick may continue to smoke and glow.
  • Candles should be kept separated by a minimum of 4 inches to avoid burning problems.

Storage Guidelines

Candles have a long shelf life, however over time, their colors may fade, they may become sticky, and fragrant candles may lose their scent. To prolong this phase of aging, follow these storage guidelines.

  • Candles should be stored in a cool place, room temperature, or below..
  • The darker the place, the better it is. Not only do they melt under intense sunshine, but the colors and scents do disappear more quickly..
  • Always keep the candles in a dry place..
  • Store candles in an airtight container or a plastic to maintain their color, scent and to keep them away from dust..
  • Glass containers can be harmful, always store the candles away from the reach of children and pets.
