Candle Care

Our candles contain natural soy wax, formulated in Australia, by a company dedicated to protecting natural resources and environmental sustainability. We use premium fragrances, hand-crafted in Australia and natural-fibre cotton & wooden wicks.

We hand-pour and craft each candle with love, so please understand that every candle may not be perfect, some may have blemishes and imperfections, but we believe this adds to the character and uniqueness of our candles.

In order to keep your candle burning at its best, please follow the below candle care tips.


TRIM THE WICK
To maintain a clean and even burn, trim the wick to 5mm prior to each burn.

This reduces smoking and eliminates wick ‘mushrooming’.


FIRST BURN
In order to create an even burn when lighting your candle for the first time,

allow the candle to burn long enough for the wax to melt to the edge of the glass.
A candle not allowed to burn to the edge on first burn can lead to ‘tunnelling’ of the wax.


EXTINGUISHING
To avoid splashing of hot wax and smoking, always use a snuffer to extinguish your candle.

 

BURNING OUT
Never let your candle burn down to the base as this can cause the glass to shatter.

Always leave at least 1cm of wax in the base.

Never leave your candle unattended.
Place on a dry surface away from any drafts.
Store in a cool, dry, dark place, in the upright position.
