Candle Care

For safety and to ensure the longest life for your

Pyper & Finn plant-based candles,

be sure to follow the Candle Care Guide

  • Always trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting (we suggest using a wick trimmer but household scissors will also work).


  • The first time you light your candle, let it burn until the melted wax reaches the edge of the container to prevent your candle from tunneling (approximately 2 – 3 hours.)  The scent will be strongest when a full melt pool is achieved.



Candle Safety:

  • Follow the 2 foot rule - don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains, bedding, towels, or anything flammable. 

  • Do not burn under shelves such as a book shelf or under a cabinet.  The flame needs space to breathe.

  • Place candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface such as a ceramic coaster that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax.

  • Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans and any air currents.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.

  • Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep or if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container. 

  • Never throw water on a burning candle!

  • A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time.

  • For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/4 inch of wax remains in the container.
