Candle Care

Please follow the below 'Candle Care' instructions to ensure you get the best out of your candle and to encourage a safe candle burning experience.

SOY CANDLES

 

BURN TIMES

We recommend you burn your candle in accordances with the following times each burn:

SMALL CANDLES up to 2 hours

MEDIUM CANDLES up to 3 hours

LARGE CANDLES up to 5 hours

Candles must be burnt on a heat resistant surface. i.e. stone bench or on a candle coaster.

BURN MEMORY

The first burn and each subsequent burn should last as long as it takes to reach the edge of the vessel. This will give you maximum fragrance, an even burn and ensure you get the maximum burn time from your candle.

TRIM YOUR WICK

Ensure you trim your wick to a maximum of 5mm before you re-light your candle. This will ensure a long lasting candle, minimise soot and remove any mushrooming of the wick left from the previous burn. But be sure not to over trim your wick as you may not be able to re-light your candle.

If you do not trim the wick regularly or your candle is left to burn too long, you may get a mushroom of carbon on the end of the wick. This may cause some soot to collect on the inside of the container. If this happens, extinguish your candle, wait for it to cool, wipe off the carbon marks with a clean damp cloth.

If your flame is too big, trim your wick.

HOW DO I PUT MY CANDLE OUT

Always blow your candle out. Do not put the candle out by placing the lid on the jar. 

CANDLE STORAGE

Candles are sensitive to temperature and light. To avoid your candle cracking and melting by storing them in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, dust and fluorescent light.

APPEARANCE

Please remember our candles are hand poured, not massed produced. Although all effort is made to ensure consistency, every candle will be different.

Candles with vanilla scents may discolour slightly. This is normal and does not affect the scent.

The top of your candle may also appear slightly uneven, this is also a sign of natural soy wax being hand poured.

Do not leave your candle in direct sunlight as it may turn a nasty yellow colour. It will not affect the candle in any way, it just loses its creamy white colour.

IT'S TIME FOR A NEW CANDLE

All container candles should be discarded when there is 1cm of wax remaining. Failure to discard at this point could cause the glass to crack or even explode from the heat.

 

WARMERS + SOY MELTS

Place your melt warmer in a safe location away from drafts and anything flammable and also well out of the reach of children or pets.

Place one of the soy melts in the top of a dry warmer - do not add water (reseal the pack to retain the fragrance of the remaining melts).

 

BAMBOO REED DIFFUSERS

Bamboo Reed Diffusers can be used in any area to create a beautiful scent.

Before opening we recommend you shake the Diffuser well.

To assemble, remove the collar, then remove the plastic plug. Replace the collar and add the bamboo reeds.

Depending how strong you like your fragrance, we recommend turning the bamboo reeds once per week. If you like a stronger fragrance the can be turned daily.
