HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CANDLE

Learn to care for your candle correctly to give it a longer life

There are a few simple rules to burning natural wax that ensures you get the most from your candle.

  • To ensure you get an even burn for the life of the candle it is essential to melt the top layer of wax when first lighting.

  • Maximum time you should have your candles lit for is 4 hours, any longer and the heat can distort the wick position and create excess pressure on the glass. 

  • Always use a snuffer to extinguish your candle, this stops hot wax being blown out of the candle jar.

  • Also remove any debris from melted wax.

  • Before relighting a candle, always trim the wick to 4mm - long wicks can create excess smoke, sooting and higher flames.

  • NEVER leave your candle unattended, if the glass cracked and the melted wax poured out it could ignite and cause a fire.

  • NEVER leave candles near an open window/curtains or near a draught or fan.

  • NEVER leave candles where pets or children could knock them over.
