OUR IN DEEPTH GUIDE ON HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CANDLE

How to burn your candle

Always burn your candle in a well ventilated area and keep away from drafts or fans which can cause sooting or accelerate burn and cause it to burn unevenly. 

The first burn is always the most important

In order to maximise the life of your candle it is important on the first burn to be a minimum of 2-3 hours or until the wax has pooled to the edges. Burning for less can cause the candle to “tunnel” meaning that it’ll leave a building block of wax around the sides. 

Looking after your candle throughout its life time

Keep the wax pool clear of any debris, dust or matches as this could affect the quality of burn or act as a second wick which means your candle would burn faster.

When using your candle, you may notice that the wick may move or slant. It is important after extinguishing the flame to re-centre your wick so that it will be centralised again once it hardens for the next use.

Before lighting your candle again, check your wick is trimmed to 1/4 inch. Long, crooked wicks can cause high flames, sooting or smoking. 

How to store you candle

Your candle is made from delicate fragrance notes which should be stored in cool dry places. Cover your candles with a lid if available to protect it from dust or other debris or in a cupboard where it is away from light.

Look out for condensation on the surface of your candle which could be a sign that its has been stored too long. If this happens wipe away the access with a paper towel before lighting.

Storing your candle too long will affect the scent! We always recommend that you make the most of your beautiful fragrance as soon as its purchased.
