CANDLE CARE

CANDLE CARE & SAFETY

  • When lighting the candle for the first time, burn the candle until wax melts across the entire surface up to the sides of the vessel as this will prevent tunneling, and create an even burn for the duration of the candle's 'life'. This may take up to 2-4 hours, but we promise it will make your candle last longer.

  • For subsequent lightings, our recommended burn time is 3-4 hours max.

  • We recommend trimming your wick before every lighting. The wick only needs to be approximately 5mm in length, keeping it this length will avoid mushrooming which can result in unnecessary soot. This also controls the size of the flame allowing you to get the most time out of your candle.

  • If soot forms on the inside of the vessel, extinguish candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Trim wick and relight.

  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents and ceiling fans to minimize smoking or a wick blowing out causing the candle to burn unevenly.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or within reach of flammable objects.

  • Keep burning candle away from children and pets.

  • Do not burn more than 4 hours 

  • Place the candle on a protected, heat resistant surface.

  • Extinguish candle with a snuffer, or dip the wick into the melted wax and then straighten wick to prevent smoking and also prevent hot wax from splattering. Do not blow out.

  • Never extinguish candles with water.

  • Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place. Scented candles also look great stored under a glass cloche which also protects from dust.

  • Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlights.

  • You can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.

  • Discard when 1/2" wax remains.
