How to Care For Your Candle
HOW TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR CANDLE
Because each and every batch of candles can vary due to natural surroundings such as temperature and season changes, we are always striving to ensure the best consistency by continuing to hand-pour in small batches. Take care of your candle to prolong its life - trim the wick down to 1/4" prior to burning to ensure a clean-burning flame. Leaving the wick too long may cause the flame to enlarge which will burn the wax faster and shorten the lifespan of your candle. To extend the life and scent shelf-life of your candle, we recommend not burning them for more than 4 hours at a time.
Please be mindful to always use precaution during an open flame. Here are other helpful safety tips:
A burning candle will get hot. Always burn a candle at least 12 inches away from flammable objects and surfaces.
Keep a burning candle away from drafts, open air vents or ceiling fans / open windows as this can make a candle burn more rapidly.
Always remember to keep matches out of children’s and pet’s reach.
Never leave a child or your furry pets alone in a room with a burning candle.
Extinguish the flame before it burns down to the bottom when there’s 1/2” of wax. Burning further can be dangerous and can shatter your vessel.
Candle wax and water don’t mix. This can cause the wax to spatter or sparks the wick.
Avoid moving a candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquefied.

Candle clean up & Repurposing Your Glasses
Warm water and soap will clean any candle residue. Stop burning the candle when there is 1/2" of wax left in the glass. After the candle has cooled, place the glass in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Once hardened, take a spoon or knife and gently press down to poke the wax which should lift it from the glass. Wash the glass with dishwashing liquid to reuse.
You can also soak the candle glass in water and soap overnight. Wipe or peel away the labels and rinse off any wax residue in the glass. Goo-gone can remove any label residue. Add a few drops to some kitchen paper and wipe it off gently.
Our Handcrafted Product Guarantee
Each and every ByRoya candle has been made by hand including the assembling and packaging process. While small batch-pouring ensures attention to detail, variations in appearance from the wax may occur and should not be considered a defect. We do not use any coloring additives or dye so it can naturally change depending on fragrance oils added. If the candle is not burning properly where the flame goes out on its own or if there are any other issues, please contact us.
