Candle Tips & Tricks

1.When you first burn your candle, burn it until the melted wax reaches the edge of your jar. This will ensure your candle always burns flat rather than creating a tunnel.

2.Before lighting, trim your wick to 6mm. Trim using scissors or a wick trimmer for a cotton wick and a wick trimmer or pinch with your fingers for a wooden wick. This ensures a clean (no black smoke), safe burn and increased candle lifespan.

3.Keep your candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings.

4.Only burn the candle on a level surface.

5.Do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time, as this protects the glass from overheating, and ensures optimum function of the wick. To protect the surface below from heat, place your candle on a coaster.

6.Do not burn your candle when approximately 8mls of wax remains. This ensures you do not overheat your jar.

7.If you have some residue wax on the jar, you can wipe this off with a tissue once you have extinguished the candle, and while the wax is warm.

8. Remember to recycle

We have specifically chosen beautifully shaped, clear jars, so you can re-use them. They make great mini terrariums, tea light holders, succulent pots, or makeup brush holders. Our tea light pots are made from aluminium which is recyclable.

You can turn our candle boxes inside out and reuse them.  They make nice little gift boxes!
