A guide to Candle Care & Safety

For our candles to burn beautifully for a long time. Here are a few suggestions on how to love and care for your candles:

The first time you burn your candle it is important to burn the candle until the wax pool reaches the side of the jar (approx. 1-2 hours). This first burn will form a 'memory' for all future burns and prevent tunnelling. Tunnelling is where the wax pool forms a tunnel down the centre and does not reach the sides of the jar which means your candle will not last as long.

• Always keep wicks centred in the melted wax, and regularly trim to ¼” tall. A quick trim between lighting's is best (using a wick trimmer makes it super easy, especially when reaching into a narrow vessel).
• Avoid burning any candle  more than 3-4 hours at a time. Blow them out and allow to cool before relighting.
•  Using a wick dipper is the easy, smoke-free way to extinguish your candles. It’s a simple tool that dips the flame into melted wax and pulls it back up, ready for the next lighting. Once you try one, you'll love it.


A few important safety tips:

•  Never leave a burning candle unattended.
•  Do not burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.
•  Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
•  Know when it’s time to say goodbye. Stop using a candle when only 1cm of wax remains.
•  Be sure to place candle on a stable, heat resistant surface before lighting. For candles in metal vessels, using a cork or stone coaster is best as they tend to get hotter than others.
•  Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and debris, including burnt matches.
•  Avoid air drafts which can cause sooting and uneven burning. (wipe soot out regularly with a dry soft paper towel).
•  Do not move or touch a burning candle.
•  Remember to burn all candles in a well-ventilated room.
•  Never fall asleep to candlelight!
•  Be sure to extinguish and let cool a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly.
