Candle Care

TRIM YOUR WICK

Trimming your wick is an essential part of candle care. You should trim your wick to around 4mm before each burn. 

Trimming ensures that the candle will burn evenly, but also you will get a nice clean and even burn throughout the use of your candle.

We recommend using a wick trimmer to help you trim the wick.

THE FIRST BURN IS IMPORTANT

You want to ensure that the wax burns right to the edge of the glass, before extinguishing on your first burn. Otherwise, you get wax that stays up the edges of the candles for every burn afterwards.

We recommend burning your candle for 4 hours initially to ensure that you don’t get tunnelling on the second burn. 

KEEP IT CLEAN

You want to avoid any debris in your wax pool, so don’t leave any half burnt wicks in there. 

If you don’t trim your wick, the burnt wick will fall into the molten wax and be a potential fire hazard and often creates an unpleasant smell.

This is one step of candle care that most people ignore, but it will help your candle last longer and smell fresh every time.

FOUR HOURS BURN TIME

To minimise any damage or issues, we recommend only burning your candle for 4 hours at a time. Also, keep an eye on your candle the whole time that it is burning.

BE SAFE

It’s critical to keep our candles away from children and pets. Plus, to avoid burning yourself don’t touch the candle until it has fully cooled.

Make sure you’re putting them somewhere safe, away from draughts and things that are flammable and always 10cm apart from another candle.

NEVER blow out your flame, ALWAYS extinguish using a wick snuffer, to avoid serious injury.

DON’T BURN BELOW 5MM

Once your candle has got to 5mm, it is time to stop burning it.
