Candle Care

First Burn
The first burn is the most important because it sets the precedence for how the rest of the candle will burn. Candle wax has a memory and if you don’t leave enough time for the wax to melt fully to the edges of the jar it can lead to ‘tunnelling’ and wastage of the wax.

Our 180ml candles usually take around 2 hours to reach their full melt pool on the first burn. For the larger 250ml candles it takes a little longer (4 + hours) and might not reach the full melt pool until the second or third burn. If you find wax at the edge of the jar, leave it a good time to burn and it will catch up! 

Trimming the Wick
Always trim the wick before lighting each time by cutting or breaking the burnt ends off when cool. This can either be done using scissors, wick trimmers or fingers. This prolongs the life of the candle and ensures a consistent burn. 

Never leave a lit candle unattended and never place a candle where it can easily be knocked over or in reach of children or pets. Place your candle on a heat-resistant mat or tile to protect the surfaces. Don’t burn for more than 4 hours at a time, it will become too hot and burn faster.
