Candle care

IMPORTANT
Please follow the below 'Candle Care' instructions to ensure you get the best out of your candle and to encourage a safe candle burning experience.

CREATE A BURN MEMORY
Always allow melted wax to reach the sides of the vessel for the first burn. This creates a 'burn memory' which will prevent your candle from tunneling and creates an even burn ensuring you get the maximum burn time out of your candle.

TRIM YOUR WICK
Ensure you trim your wick/s to a maximum of 5mm before relighting each time.  This is super IMPORTANT as it will reduce any smoke & 'mushrooming' of the wick encouraging a longer burn time.
 

BURN TIMES
Travel Tins, Mini & Medium Ambers: maximum burn time of 2 hours each time
Large White & Xlge Amber (double wick): maximum burn time of 3 hours each time. 
IMPORTANT: Once the wax reaches half way down your vessel, carefully monitor the burn time and extinguish the flame after 1 hour.  It is particularly important to monitor the Xlge (double wick) candles to ensure the wicks do not drift off centre.  

GENERAL CANDLE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS:
- ALWAYS place candle on an even surface
- NEVER leave a burning candle unattended
- ALWAYS leave 1-1.5cm of wax remaining at the bottom of the vessel
