Istwa Ayisyen (Haitian History)

Nèg Mawon - Black Man - Symbol of black liberation and abolishment of slavery in Haiti. Jean-Jacques Dessalines, Henri Christophe, and Alexandre Pétion laid heavy battle against Charles Leclerc, the leader of the French invasion. As the tide of the war turned in favor of the former slaves, Napoleon abandoned the invasion, which led to Dessalines declaring the independence of Haiti in 1804.

Candle Care Instructions

Trim the Wick 
Trim the wick to 1⁄4" length before each use and each time the candle begins to smoke. If the wick is too short the flame will be small and will not stay lit. If the wick is too long it will cause sooting and dripping. Trimming the wick is extremely important. We recommend letting the candle only burn about 2-3 hours before you re-trim the wick. 

Proper Burn Time is Key 
Proper burn time is essential during first use of a candle to maximize performance. Filled candles should burn until the surface is melted to the edges of the container. Avoid burning candles more than 4 hours at a time to prevent pooling.

The Best Way to Extinguish a Candle 
Blowing out flames can lead to wax splattering and sooting. The best way to extinguish a candle is with a wick dipper. This tool allows you to safely submerge and reposition the wick without any soot. Another good option is to use a snuffer or place the metal lid on the jar.

Avoid Drafty Areas 
Burn candle in a ventilated area but avoid drafty areas, as drafts can cause the flame to flicker, which often causes the candle to burn uneven and smoke.

Candle Storage 
Store candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to preserve the color and fragrance of your candle.

Safety Tips 
Never leave a burning candle unattended. If you plan to leave the room, or if you have curious pets and/or children, make sure the burning candle is out of reach. Never move or tip a burning candle. Never burn candles near flammable materials. Extinguish all candles before going to sleep and be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
