Candle Care

To Get The Best From Your Candle

  • The first time you light your candle you must let it burn for at least 2 hours, or until the liquified wax reaches the edge of the glass.
  • Doing this each time you light the candle will ensure it doesn’t “tunnel” - burn down leaving unmelted wax at the edges. 
  • To preserve the fragrance burn the candle for 2-4 hours at a time.  Please try not to burn it for more than 4 hours.
  • Always trim the wick before burning to 5mm
  • Should the wick require centering, gently readjust to correct position when the wax is still molten
  • Should black smoke appear, extinguish the flame and  trim the tip of the wick.  It should be clean and no longer than 5mm at all times
  • Soot marks appear occasionally on the glass but these are easily removed with a damp cloth.
  • Do not burn your candle all the way down.  Always leave 1cm of wax at the bottom
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended
  • Never move or tip a burning candle
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets
