Helpful Hints for Your Wine BottleWicks when using your wine bottle oil
1. Safety First
Always follow safety procedures for using any
candle or oil lamp. Never use gasoline or any fuel that will readily
volatize. As with any open flame, you should burn them within sight. Keep out of reach
of children & pets. Never burn on or near anything that can catch fire. Burn in
a ventilated area and keep away from drafts. Use BottleWicks on a heat resistant and
stable surface. Do not move while lit or use water to extinguish. Use with caution at
your own risk. And Please, never leave BottleWicks or candles

is the first time using your Wine BottleWick. It takes a few minutes for the capillary action
to work. Light your beautiful Wine BottleWick and you'll have years or romantic light. If the
