Zen Stone Candle Care
Our zen stone oil candles require clean burning oil. You can order clean burning fuel from us or you can find it at hobby stores.
A few things to note while using our candles:
- Keep wicks trimmed to ¼ inch. The higher the wick, the higher the flame. Check wick height before lighting and pull up as needed. The wick will burn down with each use.
- Always use the funnel (included) to fill the candle vessel with oil. Pour oil slowly and wipe up any excess if you have a spill.
- After filling the vessel with oil, allow the wicks to soak for approx. 10 min before attempting to light.
- Like all candles, keep this candle in an area that is free of flammable items. Place away from walls, curtains, and out of a child's reach. Do not place lit candle under anything hanging such as shelves. Keep fire safety in mind at all times when using our candles.
- To clean, please use a damp cloth and mild detergent (if needed) to wipe the surface.
