How To Care For Your Candles




Here are tips for safely prolonging the life of your AMAKIN candles.

Burn Time

The first time you burn your AMAKIN candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly the next time.

Extinguishing the Flame 

Embrace the power of your wick trimmer to quickly and cleanly put out candle flames without producing any smoke. Gently hover the wick trimmer over the flame and lightly press the flame until it goes out.

Trim the Wick

Before lighting your AMAKIN candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.

Realign the Wick

After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.


Never leave a lit candle unattended. This could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.
