Candle Care


1. User instructions:
On the first burn, you should allow the candle to burn for 3-4 hours (excluding tealights) to establish an even melt pool (i.e. the melt pool reaches the edge of the container). You should NOT leave the candle burning for more than 4 hours at one time. Before relighting, please trim wick to 1/8 to 1/4 inch (0.3 to 0.6 cm).
Please extinguish the candle when there is 5mm of wax left in the bottom and do not re-light. Once you are finished with your candle, scrape out any remaining wax from the container then wash it with hot, soapy water. You can then re-use the jar as a decorative holder or a pot for a house plant.
2. Safety instructions: 

 Never leave a burning candle unattended. 

   Keep away from things that can catch fire.

  Keep away from children and pets.

3. Additional instructions:

   Keep candles at least 10cm away from each other.

   Keep wax pool clear of matches and debris. ⠀
   Always snuff out the candles. Do not blow out. ⠀
   Do not burn in a draught. ⠀
   Container will become hot during use. Do not move a burning candle.  ⠀
   Do not place candles near a source of heat.

4. CLP labels: 

For all our scented candles, we have obtained the relevant safety data sheets (SDS) and included the CLP labels on our candles as required by law. This shows our commitments to customer's safety as our blends have been duly tested and examined before being put onto the market.
