Candle Care

BURN TIME

Always allow your candle to burn long enough to create a melted pool of wax across the entire diameter of the container to create even burning.  Never burn for longer than 4 hours.  Burn candle on heat resistant surface.  Cease burning when wax is ½ inch from the bottom. 

 

TRIM THE WICK

Before lighting always trim the wick to 6mm and remove any wick debris as this encourages an even burn. Trim the wick with a wick trimmer prior to any burn

 

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 may also start to smoke.

 

PUTTING CANDLES OUT

Use a candle snuffer to prevent wicks from drifting off centre and to avoid wax splash. This will help to maximise the candle’s burn time. Blowing out a candle is not recommended as the liquid wax may splatter and the wick may continue to glow and emit smoke. Never use water to extinguish the flame.

 

PREVENT INJURY

Do not burn if container is damaged, chipped or cracked.  Never leave candle unattended.  Always keep candle out of reach of children and pets.  Never move a candle if container is hot or contains melted wax.  Never allow the flame to come into contact with the side of the glass
