Candle Care

Yay! You are the new owner of a premium soy candle or other fragrance product from Candles on Tap! 

To ensure a safe and fragrant burn each time you enjoy your candle, please refer to our care instructions below.  


  • Never leave a candle unattended and keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Before you light your candle each time, your wick should be trimmed to 1/4" and repositioned to the center.
  • Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame is too high.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and debris at all times.
  • Burn your candle between one and four hours at a time for best results. 
  • A draft is a candle's worst enemy.  Keep your candle away from ceiling fans, high traffic areas, and vents.  

Reed Diffusers 

  • Our 4 oz reed diffusers release a slow, steady fragrance for one to two months. These are ideal for small spaces and places where burning a flame is not allowed, such as dorm rooms, classrooms, offices, etc.  
  • For a burst of fragrance, simply flip the reeds.  

If your candle or other product doesn't burn or perform the way you think it should, please contact us at so we can make it right.

Your products can't wait to be the scent-er of attention!
