Hello, to all our fellow candle enthusiasts!

Today, we want to shed some light on a topic that's crucial for our well-being and the enjoyment of our Pinky Swear & Co. candles: candle safety. We all adore the cozy, comforting glow and fragrant ambiance candles bring into our lives, but it's essential to keep safety in mind to ensure a hazard-free experience.

Here are some invaluable tips to help you embrace the enchantment of Pinky Swear & Co. candles while staying safe and sound:

  • Choose Your Location Wisely: Before you even think about lighting your Pinky Swear & Co. candle, make sure it's placed on a heat-resistant surface away from flammable materials. Keep candles far from curtains, papers, and any other combustible items.
  • Trim Those Wicks: Just as we care for ourselves with self-love and mindfulness, we must care for our candles with regular wick trimming. Trim the wick to about 1/4 inch before each lighting to prevent excessive smoke and uneven burning.
  • Never Leave Unattended: It's tempting to get lost in the magical allure of a Pinky Swear & Co. candle, but please never leave a burning candle unattended. Safety should always be our top priority.
  • Keep Children and Pets at Bay: While we adore our little ones and furry friends, they may not fully understand the potential hazards of candles. Ensure candles are out of reach to prevent accidental burns or accidents.
  • Mind the Drafts: Drafts can disrupt the steady burn of your Pinky Swear & Co. candle. Place it away from open windows, fans, or air vents to maintain an even and safe burn.
  • Use Proper Candle Accessories: Invest in candle accessories like snuffers and candle holders designed for your Pinky Swear & Co. candles. They not only enhance your candle experience but also keep things safe and stylish.
  • Monitor Burn Time: Each candle has its recommended burn time. For Pinky Swear & Co. candles, it's generally best to burn them for no more than 3-4 hours at a time. This prevents overheating and ensures a longer lifespan for your candle.
  • Emergency Preparedness: Be prepared for the unexpected. Keep a fire extinguisher and a bowl of water nearby, just in case. Safety first!

By following these simple guidelines, you can fully immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Pinky Swear & Co. candles while keeping safety at the forefront. Let's embrace the warmth and fragrance of our candles with confidence, knowing that we're enjoying them responsibly.

Remember, candles are not just objects; they're a source of solace, comfort, and serenity. By prioritizing safety, we can continue to savour their beauty without worry. Stay safe and let the soothing embrace of Pinky Swear & Co. candles fill your life with tranquility. 

Until next time, my dear candle lovers!
