Getting the most from your candle

  • The first time you burn your candle, please make sure you burn it until the wax melts to the edges of the container (this may take up to 3 hours with one of our large candles).  If you blow out a candle mid way through its burn across the surface, the candle is more likely to burn down from where you last left it, creating a tunnel.  This could mean you lose hours worth of burn time in wax around the edges.

  • Burning a candle in a draughty area can cause uneven burning, a smoky flame and cause your candle to burn faster.

  • Trim the wick to about 5mm before each new burn, as this will make your candle last longer and help prevent any smoking.

  • Keep all lit candles out of the reach of children and pets.

  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire, such as furniture, curtains, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.

  • Don’t burn a candle for more than 4 hours as the glassware can get hot!

  • Ensure the candle is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. 

  • Do not burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, it’s advised to discontinue burning a candle when 1 cm wax remains in a container.
