Candle Care and Safety

Candle Care

There are a number of things you can do to ensure you have the best experience possible when burning your candle.

  • Always place the candle on a level surface to ensure an even melt pool

  • Trim the wick(s) to about 5mm before lighting every time.

  • Burn the candle long enogh to allow the melt pool to reach the edge of the container but no much longer.

  • Allow the candle to fully cool and set before relighting.

  • Keep the candle out of wind. Even a light breeze can effect the burn.

  • Keep the candle clean. That is, don’t allow pieces of burnt wick, or any other foriegn object, to accumulate in the wax.

  • Store candles in a cool (not cold) dry place out of direct sunlight.
