To get the very best out of your gorgeous candle, here are a few simple tips:

Lighting your candle for the first time

Once you have lit your candle, allow the wax to liquidate across the entire layer - edge to edge of the glass.  This helps prevent wax tunnelling (or ‘memory pool’) and will create a clean even burn that will use every inch of wax for the life of the candle.  Using this method will give you a wonderful distribution of the fragrance in your room.  Depending on the size of your candle, this may take several hours but well worth every minute!  

We recommend that you don’t burn your candle for longer than 3-4 hours at a time.  Allow the wax to harden before relighting or moving.

Trim the wick 

When unlit, regularly trim the wick to 5mm which will help prevent excess sooting. 

Keep your glass looking clear and fresh. 

Regularly clean your glass vessel.  When not lit, use a clean cloth to wipe off any essential oil or fragrance oil residue from the inside of the glass and it will continue to look fresh throughout its life. 

Storing your candles

Ideally store your candles away from direct sunlight or bright light.  Keep the candles in a cool, dry place which will help protect them.  When not in use, use your silver lid (or candle dome if you bought one) as this will help prevent any dust getting onto the candles which can dull the scent or store in your candle presentation box.

Safety, Safety, Safety

Always burn your candle away from drafts or anything that may catch fire.   Never leave your burning candle unattended.  Burn your candle out of reach of children or pets.  Place your candle on a level surface and never handle when lit.  The glass container can get hot on the bottom as the flame nears the base of the vessel.

When is it time to say goodbye?

Stop using your candle when around 3mm to 5mm of wax remains and start thinking which fragrance your next candle will be!
