Burning & Safety Instructions

To get the most out of your Takk candle we recommend burning the candle by following the instructions below. 

  • Trim wick to 5mm before lighting
  • Keep wick centered and free of foreign objects
  • Never leave burning candles unattended. 
  • Do not burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
  • Keep burning candles away from children & pets. 
  • Only burn candles in well ventilated areas.
  • Make sure you place burning candles at least 10 cm apart from each other.
  • Do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Allow the wax to cool before relighting, and if needed trim the wick to remove the carbonised black tip before relighting
  • Allow the melt pool to reach the glass edge the first time you light it, to avoid tunneling
  • Leave a small amount of wax before disposing the candle or, preferably, wash with warm water and reuse the glass with for example tealights or storage purpose.
