Additional Information on our Dough Bowl Candles

These beautiful, one-of-a-kind dough bowls are handmade of raw wood and vary in shape and size*. We want you to get the maximum enjoyment from your dough bowl candles so please remember to trim the wicks to 1/4" each time before lighting and don't burn more than a few hours before trimming and relighting. This will increase your burn time and help prevent smoke and overheating that may cause the candle to crack or combust. 

Place candles on a hard, flat surface or tray that will not be damaged by heat, flame, smoke and/or if the bowl breaks and the wax leaks or spills. Do not burn candles near furniture, drapes, carpet, paper or anything that could catch fire or be damaged if the candle cracks or breaks due to heat, smokes or catches fire. To help in fire prevention, the dough bowls are pre-treated with a flame retardant, sealed with a thin hard coating of wax on the bottom layer and have extended metal wick tabs to keep the wicks from burning all of the way to the bottom. As always, with any open flame, do not burn in a draft and never leave your candle unattended.

*Any scratches, knots, small cracks and other irregularities are due to the hand-carved natural wood.
