When you first light your candle, allow the wax to melt all the way to the outer edges of the container. Allowing a full melt pool guarantees an even burn (no tunnelling) and maximum scent throw.
Maximum Session Burn Times
Never burn a candle for longer than four hours at a time. If a candle is burnt for excessive periods without being allowed to re-solidify, the excessive heat will cause the essential oil to burn out faster than it should.
Best Before Date
As all our candles are scented with plant-based, all-natural essential oils, we highly recommend using them within six months from the date of purchase.
Putting Candles Out
Cover the candle with the lid to put the candle out. Blowing out a candle is not recommended as the wick may continue to glow and emit smoke.
When creating decorative candle displays, candles should be separated from each other by a minimum of 10cm to prevent burn problems. Candles that are burnt too close together will affect each candle's burn quality.
To ensure your candles are kept in optimum condition, keep them out of direct sunlight and store them in a cool, dark place.
We use 100% cotton, lead-free wicks. To provide the cleanest burn possible, trim your cotton wick to ¼ inch with a wick trimmer before lighting.
Half Inch Rule
Discontinue use of a candle when there is ½ inch of wax left at the bottom of the jar. This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface, or the container itself.
Do not leave candles unattended and place away from children and pets. Always place candles on a heat-resistant base, and set on a levelled and stable surface.
