Candle Care Guide

Getting the best from your candle

A few pointers to help you get the most out of burning your candles

  • The first time you light your candle, it's important to allow it to become molten right to the edge. As a general rule, burn the candle a minimum of 3 hours the first time.
  • for larger wide candles of 10-15 cm diameter burn for a minimum of 4-5 hours on the first lighting.
  • Trim the candle wick to 5mm each time you light your candle. This stops smoking and dripping, creates an even burn pattern and your candle will last longer too.
  • When using our new votive candles, there is no need to place a teaspoon of water in the glass cup before each new candle, they will completely burn away!
  • Always place your candles on a candle holder or heat resistant base. This stops colour leeching and scorching and will catch any potential leaking wax.
  • Remember to remove all labels prior to burning.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Burn candles away from soft furnishings and other combustibles.
  • Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets.
  • Candle holders are NOT dishwasher safe!
