Care Instructions

Getting Started

Please note that due to the nature of the wax, a fine white film might accumulate on the surface of the candle. This is a naturally occurring effect that doesn’t affect the quality or burning of the candle, and can be easily wiped off.

Please use a candle stand to position the candle and catch any wax residue. Use hot water to wash off any wax from the candle stand.

Flame height

Please be aware that Japanese candles can produce a large flame thanks to the unique paper wick. Trim the wick if desired.

Candle Care

• Place candle on candle stand
• Place stand on heat-proof non-flammable base
• Never leave a burning candle unattended
