Candle Burning Guide

Tips for making the most of your candles

 

On the first use,  burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool which melts to the edge of the candle.  This will help your candle to burn more evenly as you continue to use it.

 

After burning a candle, ensure the wick is upright, above the wax and central before the wax sets. 

For our  candles with cotton wicks, trim or break the wick to about 0.5cm before lighting each time you use it.

For wooden wicks, occasionally they can take a couple of matches to light.  Don't worry it will light, it needs a little wax to melt first before it can get going.

Candle safety

Never leave a burning candle unattended.​  

 

Burn candle out of reach of children and pets.  

 

Always leave at least 10cm between burning candles.  

 

Do not burn candles on or near anything that can catch fire.  

 

Only burn candles on a level heat resistant surface.​  

 

Do not place candles in a draught.    

 

Keep the wax pool clear and clear of matches and other debris to avoid flaring.  

 

Never burn for more than 4 hours at a time. 

 

Do not allow the flame to touch the glass. 

 

Glass may become hot during use. 

 

Extinguish when 0.5cm of wax remains and do not relight.
