candle care

Please follow these candle care instructions to ensure your candles burn correctly and efficiently.

  • Always ensure the first burn is for approximately 2 hours.
  • When you first burn your candle, allow the wax to pool evenly to the edge of the glass. This will ensure an even burn and maximum fragrance delivery every time you use your candle.
  • NEVER burn a candle for longer than 3 hours. Be aware that if a candle burns too long and gets too hot, it can cause issues with glues that have been used for labelling and could cause them to ignite.
  • Trim your wick: In order to relight your candle you must remove the end of your wick by simply pinching the top part of your wick with your fingers in between burns.
  • Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
  • You can use the lid of the candle for this purpose. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
  • Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc. sooting. Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax splatters.
  • Always keep a burning candle within sight.
  • Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
  • Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.


Please consider:

​We use natural source of wax and sometimes you may notice some discolouration or lumps when the wax solidifies. This will not affect the performance of your candle in any way.
