Candle Care Tips

Burn Time - To prevent tunnelling and create candle memory, the first time you light your candle let the wax melt all the way to the edge of the glass. Never burn for more then four hours at a time.

Avoid Draughts - Candles burn best in still air but if you can’t avoid draughts, turn the candle periodically to avoid uneven burning and possible candle collapse. A candle in a draught my also start to smoke.

Putting Candles Out - It is always best to use a Candle Dipper or a Candle Snuffer rather than blowing out to prevent wicks from drifting off centre and to avoid wax splash. This will help to maximise the candle burn time.

Candle Storage - Candles are sensitive to temperature and sunlight. Fragrances with vanilla content may darken or yellow if exposed to sunlight or fluorescent light, this is normal and does not affect the burning of the candle. Store your candles in an upright position.

Trim your wick before every use - It is normal for wicks to mushroom. This is easily fixed by trimming your wick. Trimming your wick will ensure your candle does not burn hotter then it should. Be sure not to trim your wick to short or this will result in the wick becoming engulfed in wax.

Keep the burn pool clean - If you get any black at the rim of your candle jar, simply wipe it away with a damp cloth, this could be a sign your candle wick is to long.
