Candle Care

Follow these simple tips to get the most out of your new soy candles..

The First Burn is the Most Important!
When you light your candle for the first time, always allow the wax to melt across the entire surface so that it creates a pool right to the edges of the container. This will effectively assist in preventing tunnelling and help promote an even burn for the duration of the candle's life. 
Try to avoid burning candles for more than three hours in one sitting. We suggest that after burning a candle for three hours, you should allow the candle to cool for two hours before relighting.

Keep your wick trimmed!

Try to ensure that your wick is always kept to 5mm long at all times. We recommend trimming the wick every 3 hours of burn time. When trimming, always extinguish the flame, let the candle cool down to room temperature, remove any wick debris and trim the wick before relighting.
We sell wick trimmers in three colours: black, rose gold and silver. This will help to encourage a more even burn, steady flame, and limit mushrooming and sooting.

Extinguishing your candle..
Always use a proper candle snuffer to extinguish your candles as this will prevent the wick from moving and wax from spilling or splashing. This will also assist in maximising your burn times. We sell candle snuffers in three colours: black, rose gold and silver.
Never use water or the vessel lid to extinguish your candle flame.

Candle placement..
Keep candles out of reach of children and pets. Keep lit candles away from draughts, ceiling fans and any air currents. Any form of air current can cause uneven burning, smoking, diminish the scent throw and even decrease the burn time. 
Always store candles in a cool dry place below 25 degrees Celsius, and away from direct sunlight. Direct sunlight and exposure to UV light may discolour the candle.

See the base of the candle for further safety instructions.
