How to Care For Your Urn

The death of a loved one is a tough time for families and friends. It can be hard to think about anything other than the loss and grief, but things still need to be done after your loved one has passed away. Most importantly, you will need to take care of their ashes. A funeral home may offer this service for free or for a small fee, though some people prefer to do it at home with an urn they've purchased online or elsewhere. In either case, it's essential to understand how best to care for your loved one's remains so they can rest in peace forever!


Ventilation is the process of introducing fresh air into an enclosed space. This can be done through natural or mechanical means, such as an open window or an electric fan. Ventilating your urn will help prevent condensation from forming on its surface, which may cause damage to the interior of your cremation container over time.

Benefits of Ventilating Your Urn:

  • Reduces risk of mould growth and mildew formation
  • Prevents damage caused by moisture buildup in crevices and seams of materials used to make your urn (such as glass)


  • Keep the urn out of direct sunlight.

  • Avoid placing the urn in areas prone to extreme temperatures and humidity fluctuations, such as near heating vents or air conditioners.

  • Don't place the ashes on a mantle or shelf where they could fall off and break; instead, place them on a table or stand at eye level so you can see them easily when visiting your loved one's final resting place.

  • Keep pets away from the ashes because they may knock over an unattended bowl of cremated remains if left too close to their food bowl (this is especially important if you have cats).

Light and heat

  • Keep urns out of direct sunlight.
  • Keep urns away from heating appliances.
  • Keep urns away from radiators, fireplaces and air conditioners.


Incorporating ashes into a keepsake urn is a beautiful way to remember your loved one. It can be done in several different ways, and there are many materials that you can use for this purpose.

Incorporating ashes into an urn is referred to as "incorporation." This means that the cremated remains are mixed with something else, such as glass or stone, so they become part of the object. The most common types of incorporation include: sandblasting (wherein sandblasting machines are used to carve out images from glass), engraving (which uses lasers), carving (which uses traditional hand tools), and painting on glass panels using paint brushes dipped in powdered pigments mixed with water--a technique known as "painting on glass."

Keepsake urns

Keepsake urns are more miniature than traditional cremation urns and often made of wood or metal. They are used to hold the cremated remains of one person rather than multiple family members.

As with all keepsake items, it's essential to keep them safe from damage by storing them somewhere safe and away from direct sunlight or heat sources such as radiators or fireplaces.

Urns are a vital part of preserving the memories of our lost loved ones.

Urns are an important part of preserving the memories of our lost loved ones. They can be placed in a private place, such as a family home or garden, where they will remind all who visit that someone special is always there to watch over them.

To care for your urn correctly, keep it in a safe place that won't be damaged by water or heat (such as in direct sunlight). You should also avoid touching it with dirty hands and ensure not to drop anything on top of it--this could cause cracks or chips that may damage its appearance over time. Finally, if something does happen to break off from inside one of these containers- accidentally through mishandling or intentionally by removing ashes from their container- you'll want to know how best to handle this situation. Hence, as not compromise its integrity any further than necessary when trying to fix any damage done externally first before attempting anything else internally if possible without risking further damage elsewhere on account here."
