Safety and Tips

It is important with our candles to ensure to trim the wick to 5mm before each burn. This makes sure that you candle lasts longer and doesn't discolour or smoke.

Ensure to burn the candle for a minimum of 2 hours the first time you light it to ensure the wax melts to the edge of the container. Candle wax has a memory, so your candle will begin tunnelling (leaving lots of wax on the side of the container) if you don't allow the candle to burn to the edge the first time.

Never burn a candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.

Never move a lit candle, place the candle on a stable, heat resistant surface. Container and wax will become hot once lit.

Stop burning the candle once the wax reaches 10mm from the bottom of the container.

Avoid exposure to drafts. Store candle in a cool dry place, under 25 C and away from direct sunlight.

Keep out of reach of pets and children.



When you have finished burning your candle, you are able to re-use our beautiful jars for anything you like!

To clean out the small bit of wax that remains at the bottom of the jar, follow these easy instructions:

1. Put the jar in the freezer overnight.

2. Using a blunt knife, scrap the remaining wax out of the bottom of the jar.

3. Using very warm soapy water, wash the jar to get rid of any wax residue.


Unless you want a clogged drain - make sure to pop your wax in the bin not down the sink!
