Candle Tips

Before lighting (everytime), trim the wick to approx. 5mm. This ensures an even wax melt and reduces unnecessary soot building up on the glass.

On the first burn, keep alight for approx. 2 hours allowing wax to melt to the edge of the vessel. Candle wax has a memory, and if not burnt long enough, every subsequent burn will ‘tunnel’ down the wick. 

Never burn a candle for more than 3-4 hours. This can cause glass to overheat.

Our candle glass is treated for thermal shock so will not break under normal operation, but can get hot after burning for several hours. Always make sure that candles are placed on a heat resistant surface and never move a burning candle.

Extreme heat build-up or fire can occur if you continue to burn a candle when there is 1cm or less of wax remaining. Discontinue use when wax reaches 1cm from the bottom of the glass.

Never leave a burning candle unattended and keep it away from children, animals, flammable materials and draughts.
Repurpose once empty by removing wick and cleaning in warm soapy water.
