Candle Care Tips
The First Burn
When lighting for the first time, burn the candle until wax melts across the entire surface up to the sides of the vessel as this will prevent tunnelling, and create an even burn for the duration of the candle’s life. This will take up to 2-4 hours, but we promise it will make your candle last longer.
Remember that soy wax has a memory that if your first burn is not complete to the edges, subsequent burns will not ever catch up.

How to Extinghuish a Candle
You can extinguish your candle by dipping the wick into the melted wax or alternatively by using a snuffer and then straighten wick to prevent smoking and also prevent hot wax from splattering. Never simply blow out the candle.
Avoid Windy Spaces
Placing your candle in windy areas can cause uneven burning and smoking, reduce burn time and diminished scent throw.
Is You Candle Burning Correctly?
If the flame is teardrop shaped, upright and not flickering, your candle is burning correctly. Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. These are signs that the candle is not burning correctly and the flame isn’t controlled. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before re-lighting.

Storing Your Candles
Candles should be stored in a cool, dark and dry place. Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlights.
Cleaning Your Candles
Dust and fingerprints can be removed from your candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of soft cloth or nylon. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.
