tips for safely extending the life of your candles


Burn Time

The first time you burn your Gregg Pellegrini 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.  The Approximate burn time on our 8 ounce candle is 55 hours.

Trim the Wick

Before lighting your Gregg Pellegrini candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly.

Realign the Wick

After SNUFFING 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.
