Instructions & Safety

Foton pearled candles are simple to use and safer than traditional candles as long they're used correctly.


1. Pour the pearls into your favorite container. Fireproof containers are recommended, but it is possible to safely use other containers. Just make sure they're large enough to keep the melt pool away from the edge and prevent the container from heating up during use. Generally, that means 4" minimum container width and height but test it carefully and make sure it's not heating up while burning.

2. Insert the wick with the tip sticking out of the pearls and keeping at least 2" of clearance around the wick. You can also use multiple wicks in a larger container or cut the wicks shorter if you’re trying to use a shorter container. 

3. Light your Foton and enjoy. For a chance to be featured on our social media pages, get extra creative accessorizing your candle and post a picture or video of it on social media using #fotonpearls or find us on social media @fotoncandle. 


When used correctly, Foton is safer than traditional candles. Most importantly, keep the wick away from the container edge and bottom. If accidentally left burning, the flame will self-extinguish when it reaches the end of the wick without heating up the container. It will also self-extinguish when accidentally tipped over. Don't try this at home, we've done the testing for you!

Our scent-free product is pure and naturally odorless. It’s possible to add scent to the candle by dropping compatible fragrance oils close to the wick BEFORE lighting it, but please do so at your own risk and comfort level. Never add essential oils or other fragrance oils to a burning candle! It is the user’s responsibility for all modifications made to the candles such as colors and scents.

It's REAL FIRE, please review and follow safety instructions included in the box. Use responsibly and at your own risk!
