Looking After Your Candle
All of our candles is produced with a lot of care and the key to creating a perfect candle burning experience comes down to how the candle is made, and how it is maintained throughout its lifetime.
Candle's burn best in still air. Burning the candle when there is a draught can cause the candle to smoke or burn unevenly. Place them away from open windows, doors, vents and air ducts.
Always ensure your candle wick is trimmed to approximately 5mm to remove any "clubbing" from the wick. This will stop the candle from smoking and will ensure better scent diffusion.
To get the most out of your candle, you will need to set it's candle memory. This is when the wax pool on the first burn sets the memory for the lifetime of the candle and when you light your candle for the first time do not extinguish it until there is an even wax pool that is reaching the edge of the glass all around or as close as you can get it. This can take up to 3/4 hours but no more than 4 hours. Doing this will then burn evenly all the way down. If you do not let it get an even wax pool you will experience tunnelling.
Ensure the wax pool is clear of debris prior to burning and once it has a wax pool. Keep the candle free of wick trimmings, foreign objects and flammable materials.
Extinguishing Your Candle
Always use a candle snuffer to extinguish the flame. Blowing out your candle is not recommended as the molten wax can splatter and the wick may continue to glow and emit smoke.
