Candle care

How to ensure you get the most out of your candle

⚠️ General precautions:

  • Always burn your candle on a heat resistant surface

  • Avoid windy areas and drafts

  • NEVER leave it unattended while lit

⭐️ Extra tips and care:

  • Do not burn candles for longer than 3 hours at a time. Doing so will waste your candle and excessively evaporate the fragrance

  • Each time you burn your candle, allow the entire top layer to become a fragrant pool of liquid wax (roughly 30-60mins) and you’ll get the most efficient scent possible

 🌟 Extra troubleshooting tips:

  • If your flame is too small/unstable/goes off prematurely – create a stronger flame by removing some wax. An easy way is, when there is a liquid pool of wax, dip a tissue paper in it to soak away some wax

  • If you notice large flame or soot/darkening around the candle jar – this means your candle wick is too big and creating soot. Ensure your wicks are always clean cut by removing the black tips of your wood wicks OR removing the rounded mushrooming end of your cotton wicks
