Yes, it will state the following: “Remove all packaging and place candle on heat resistant surface. Burn candle no longer than 3 to 4 hours per lighting. Keep wick trimmed to ¼ inch to prevent a smoking candle. Keep burning candles out of drafty areas as drafts will cause candle to burn uneven and smoke. Never allow flame to touch glass surface and discontinue use when ½ inch of wax remains at the bottom. Never leave a burning candle unattended.”
This is normal with some scents and natural ingredients. Trimming your wicks prior to lighting, can help alleviate some discoloration.

Consumers can be confident that a well-made and properly burned candle, whether scented or unscented, will burn cleanly and safely. Although there are no known health hazards associated with the use of scented candles, unfounded concerns about the safety of man-made fragrances vs. “natural” fragrance materials and essential oils continue to populate the media. The fragrances approved for candle usage – whether synthesized or “natural” – do not release toxic chemicals.
Although millions of Americans regularly use scented candles without any negative effects, it is always possible that a particular fragrance might trigger a negative reaction in a very small percentage of sensitive individuals. Individuals with known sensitivities to specific fragrances may want to avoid candles of those scents. In addition, consumers should remember to burn all candles, whether scented or unscented, in a well-ventilated area.
The oils found in certain fragrances may slightly increase the small amount of soot produced by a candle, but wick length and flame disturbance are the primary factors that impact sooting in a properly-formulated candl
There is a maximum amount of fragrance that can be added to a candle before it no longer burns cleanly or properly.
A well-made candle will create virtually no smoke when burning properly. Consumers often incorrectly believe their candles are sooting because of the wax type, fragrance, colorants or additives used in the candle’s formulation, but sooting is primarily due to flame and combustion disturbances. If the wick becomes too long, or an air current disturbs the flame’s teardrop shape, small amounts of unburned carbon particles (soot) will escape from the flame as a visible wisp of smoke. Any candle will soot if the flame is disturbed.
To avoid this, always trim the wick to ¼ inch before every use and be sure to place candles away from drafts, vents or air currents. If a candle continually flickers or smokes, it is not burning properly and should be extinguished. Allow the candle to cool, trim the wick, make sure the area is draft free, then re-light.
Unless a candle has defects that are obvious to the eye, you probably can’t tell just by looking. That’s why the National Candle Association strongly recommends that you purchase candles from a reputable manufacturer.
