Candle Care Tips

⦁ Do not leave a candle unattended as this can cause serious consequences

⦁ Make sure that candle is lit well out of reach of children and pets. Any open windows can cause your candle to soot (black smoke starts appearing from candle wick) when this happens make sure your window is closed and nothing else that can catch fire is surrounding your candle (curtains etc.)

⦁ If you spill candle wax on carpets or wooden floors then not to worry as this can be removed with warm soapy water

⦁ To get the best use out of your candle on the first burn, allow to burn 3-4 hours to establish an even melt pool which allows the fragrance to disperse more completely in the room. I recommend not letting your candle burn for more than 4 hours at a time

⦁ Place candle on a heat protective surface if possible

⦁ Do not attempt to move candle when lit as container may become hot during use

⦁ Extinguish candle when 1/2 of wax remains at the bottom of the candle container

⦁ Trim wick to 5mm before each new use. Allow candle to cool down before trimming. If the wooden wick is already short then once cooled, the left over burnt wood can carefully be taken off with wick trimmer. Trimming the wick helps your candle burn more cleanly, efficiently and will last longer

⦁ Store your candle in a cool, dry place and away from direct sunlight or intense light. Keeping your candle in a dark place like a cupboard or box will protect it from fading and discoloration

How to recycle candles

Here are a few ideas on how you can recycle our candles:

⦁ Candle containers can be reused for any plants/planting purposes, stationery holder, makeup holder, cooking, household items or anything else

⦁ Since natural wax is biodegradable, it can be removed with warm soapy water and thrown out which will decompose in time

⦁ Wax can also be reused and made in to wax melts, another uniquely scented candle, tea lights or seal your letters/gift boxes the old fashioned way

⦁ Labels can be removed from container and recycled, however please only remove when candle is cool/comes to an end

⦁ Candle packaging (box, wrapping paper, bubble wrap) can be recycled or reused
