Love your Candle Longer

"My entire range of Candles is crafted using a blend of natural soy wax. I incorporate a braided wick that consists of intertwined fine paper fibres. This wick design offers various benefits such as a cleaner burn, controlled curling, and a hotter, more efficient flame."

Every candle box has a care guide and a care card for easy reference is also provided with every candle purchased, should you dispose of your box.

Show some extra love and prolong the life of your candle, with these easy care guidelines.

Before Lighting:

      • Before burning, always trim the wick to ¼ inch. You can use a wick trimmer, nail clippers, or scissors. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
      • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
      • Firstly it's always best to place your candle on a heat resistant surface which is stable and level.

Burn candles in a well-ventilated room:

      • Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, soothing, and excessive dripping.
      • It is recommended that candles do not burn for longer than four hours and cool for at least two hours before relighting.
      • When lighting a candle, use long matches or a long-reach lighter. Keep your hair and loose clothing away from the flame.

While Burning:

      • On your first burn light your candle for 2-3 hours approximately to create an even melt pool. This will avoid memory tunnelling. For larger 5 wick candles you may have to burn for 4 hours on first burn to ensure even melt pool.
      • Never leave a candle unattended.
      • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
      • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lighted candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
      • Never touch or move a candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquefied.
      • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1cm remains in the container.
      • Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. This is to make sure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts that will cause the candles to burn improperly.
      • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
      • Never use a candle as a night light or while you may fall asleep.
      • Be very careful if using candles during a power outage. Flashlights and other battery-powered lights are safer sources of light during a power failure. Never use a candle during a power outage to look for things in a closet, or when fuelling equipment – such as a lantern or kerosene heater.

When Extinguishing a Candle:

      • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
      • Never use water to extinguish a candle. Water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might break a glass container.
      • Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
      • Don’t touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.

Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.


Burning Hours: Depend on environmental conditions, care of your candle and other factors your soy candle should burn for many hours, depending on net weight. 

Please note: Crystals and Shells can be left in candle placed away from the open flame and left to the outer edges when burning. They will not be a fire hazard in this position. When melt pool reaches the decorations they sink into the wax making them safe.
