Candle Care

The First Burn is the Most Important. When you light your candle for the first time, always allow the wax to burn so that it melts across the entire surface to the edges and pools to the edges of the container. This will effectively assist in preventing tunneling and help promote an even burn for the duration of the candle's life.

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.

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.

Follow the 2-foot rule - don't place a burning candle within two feet of clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable.

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.

Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.

Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax.

Place burning candles at least 10cm apart from one another.

A burning candle should not be used as a nightlight. A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time.

Do not burn the candle if the container is cracked, chipped, scratched or damaged in any way.
