How To Use Our Candles

When you first light your candle, ensure that you choose somewhere free of draughts and on a suitable surface.

FIRST BURN -leave yor candle lit for between 2 and 3 hours, to make sure that the melt pool reaches the edges of the container. Candles have a burn memory so if the melt pool didn’t reach the edge on the first burn, it won’t on any further burns. This will cause tunnelling to occur and will result in a much shorter burn time and an inferior candle. During the first hour or so of the first burn, the flame may be a little more erratic than usual, please do not be concerned as this will start to calm down and become more consistent. We would advise a maximum burn time of around 4 hours at any one time. This can avoid overheating.Any longer and the wick will get too long, causing a higher flame and soot to develop around the top of the glass.

Trimming your wick… This is important. Remember to trim your wick after each use to ensure your candle burns cleanly and retains a neet tidy flame. You can use wick trimmers or sharp scissors.If using one of our wooden wick candles you will still need to maintain the wick. we sugest  ¼ and 1/8 inch. This can either be done with a wick trimmer, a pair of nail clippers, or you can just use your fingers to snap off the excess black wick. This should be done before each light. Please ensure that you only trim the wick once the candle has cooled and there is no melted wax around the wick

NEVER leave candles burning unattended or in unsafe locations where animals and children can come into contact with a burning candle.

Our candles tins all come with lids. These can be placed under the candle tin and used to create at stand for your candle tin.
