We want you to get the best out of your candles and in addition to standard safety guidelines here are a few tips:
Do not burn for longer than 4 hours.
Trim the wick to 5mm before each burn.
Never leave a burning candle unattended, keep in your sight when lit.
Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.
Do not touch the candle when it is lit - the container can get hot!
When burning, allow the candle to create an even wax pool to the edge of the container: this prevents ‘tunnelling’ from occurring.
If your candle starts to flicker or smoke, blow it out, let it cool down & then trim the wick.
Do not fall asleep with the candle burning or use as a night-light.
Avoid leaving candles in direct sunlight as it may cause discolouration and soften the wax.
All our candles come with a safety label, this is to ensure all our customers are well informed on the correct use of our products.
Due to the handmade nature of our candles, colour and finish may vary. Air bubbles and irregularities in the wax is a natural occurrence when wax is poured and then cools down. The cooling process can cause the wax to pull away from the sides of the container slightly and changes in surrounding temperatures can also cause this. It will not affect your candle and once lit and the wax warms they will disperse.
