Candle Care

THE FIRST BURN

Place your candle on a temperature-safe surface to avoid heat damage. 

When lighting for the first time, burn the candle until wax melts across the entire surface up to the sides of vessel as this will prevent tunneling, and create an even burn for the duration of the candle's 'life'. This may take up to 2-4 hours, but we promise it will

TRIM YOUR WICKS

We can't express the importance of maintaining a short wick to get the most out of your candle. We recommend trimming your wick before every lighting. The wick only needs to be approximately 1/4" in length, keeping it this length will avoid mushrooming which can result in unnecessary soot. This also controls the size of the flame allowing you to get the most time out of your candle.

KEEP THE WAX & JAR CLEAN

Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
If soot forms on the inside of the vessel, extinguish candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Trim wick and relight.

HOW TO EXTINGUISH A CANDLE 

Extinguish candle with a snuffer, or dip the wick into the melted wax and then straighten wick to prevent smoking and also prevent hot wax from splattering. Do not blow out.

KEEP AWAY FROM WINDY SPACES

Draughts decrease burn time, cause uneven burning, smoking and diminished scent throw.

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR CANDLE IS BURNING PROPERLY

Efficient burning means flame is not flickering, teardrop shaped and upright. Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. These signs indicate the candle is not burning properly and the flame isn't controlled. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before re-lighting.

DON’T BURN ALL THE WAY DOWN

Discontinue use when ¼’’ of wax remains wax in the jar. Although it is tempting to continue burning your candle until the wax is gone, we strongly advise against this as the flame needs a solid base of wax to avoid overheating the glass jar.

HOW TO STORE CANDLES

Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place.
