In order to get the best out of your new candle, we recommend you follow the below Candle Care instructions!
Create a Burn Memory
For the first burn, allow melted wax to reach the sides of the vessel. This creates a 'burn memory' which will prevent your candle from tunnelling and creates an even burn ensuring you get the maximum burn time out of your candle. For larger candles it's recommended you allow the melted wax to reach the edges every burn.
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 black smoke & "mushrooming" of the wick and encourage a longer burn time.
Safety with your Candle
Ensure you place your candle on an even surface. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Burn for a maximum of 4 hours each time for the large and extra large candles. Carefully the monitor the burn of the extra large ambers once the wax reaches halfway down the vessel (Only burn for 2 hours at a time) to ensure wicks do not drift off centre. Always leave 1cm of Wax remaining at the bottom of the vessel.
