Candle care and safety.

Follow these rules to keep safe and get the best out of your Candle.

    • Remove candle from box before lighting, recycle box and packaging.
    • Straighten wick before lighting and place on a heat resistant surface.
    • Always trim your wick to 1cm before lighting using a wick trimmer or scissors.  
    • When first lighting your candle jar, allow the candle to burn long enough for the wax to melt to the edge of the jar, as this prevents tunnelling.
    • Burn your candle for no more than 2-3 hours at a time.
    • Always trim the wick to 5mm before re-lighting and remove any foreign materials or trimmings.
    • If the wick 'mushrooms' trim the top off. This controls the flame size so your candle doesn't burn too fast. 
    • If your candle begins to smoke or the flame is too high or flickering, extinguish the candle. Check for drafts, let it set and trim the wick before re-lighting. 
    • Use a snuffer to extinguish your candle. 
    • Never use a candle as a night light.
    • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
    • Never leave a candle unattended or near anything that can catch fire.
    • Do not move when lit.
    • Extinguish your candle using a candle snuffer.
    • Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
    • Make sure your candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
    • Do not burn your candle if there is less than 1cm of wax left.
    • Store your candle in a cool dark place.
