Candle Burning Tips

Tips on how to use floating candles ~   

  •  Choose your container - you can use just about anything!
  • Remember that the candle flame is in the center of the candle and heat goes straight up.
  • You can add a few interesting accents in the water like sparkling decorative "gems", stones, or even a cutting from your garden. Silk flowers are also nice.
  • Placement of the container is important so that curious cats or little fingers do not try to touch the container or the candles and there are no overhanging nearby house plants, or curtains, for example, 
  • Gently lower the candle into room temp water by pinching the wick so you don't drop the candle in the water and get water on the candle wick.
  • At the end of the evening just pour out the water and the remains of the candle(s) flow out. Dry your container and use fresh water for next time.
  • Multiple floating candles create a stunning centerpiece.
  • No Fragrance means that there is no candle scent to interfere with the aromas of the dinner.
  • NEVER leave a burning candle unattended - even floating candles.
