How to enjoy your candles safely
  • Always read and follow the use and safety instructions carefully.

  • Trim wick to 1cm before lighting to promote an even burn, steady flame.

  • When lighting your candle, burn it until wax melts across entire surface to the sides of vessel (this prevents tunneling, and creates an even burn for the duration of the candle’s ‘life’) This may take up to 2-4 hours.

  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.

  • Draughts decrease burn time, cause uneven burning, smoking and diminished scent throw. Efficient burning means that the flame is not flickering, teardrop shaped and upright.

  • Before re-lighting allow the wax to cool and reset. Very carefully trim the wick if necessary (it will be fragile).

  • To maximize the scent throw, keep  the doors and windows closed and burn in desired space for 30 mins before entering.

  • Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting. Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place. Scented candles also look great stored under a glass cloche, which also protects from dust.

  • Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.

  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.

  • Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.

  • Always use a candle-holder specifically designed for candle use.  Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. 

  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.

  • Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.

  • Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. 

  •  Ideally use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. 

  • Be very careful if using candles during a power failure. 

  • Never use a candle as a night light.
