Candle Care

Here are some candle care tips from us:
Creating a burn memory
The first time you burn a candle, it's crucial to let it burn for 2 - 3 hours for it to create a full melt pool. This means that the melted wax should reach all the way to the edge of the container, covering the full diameter. This will form a memory of the wax in the candle, allowing it to have a clean and even burn all the way down. Should the first burn be too short, it'll burn down only in the middle causing it to create a tunnel.

Wick trimming
Before relighting your candle (every burn), trim off the burnt wick (top portion) with a wick trimmer or simply pinch it off with your fingers. You need a short wick (approximately 0.3-0.5cm) for a wooden wick to burn properly, so don't be worried if it looks short after trimming it.

The beauty in plant-based wax
We don't use any additives or stabilising chemicals in our candles. Therefore candles may appear frosted or cure unevenly after burning it - neither of which affects the performance of the candle. This in fact shows that your candles are made with the purest ingredients.
Storing your candles
Always put the lid back on for a longer lasting aroma and keep your candles in a cool, dry and dark place away from the sunlight. 
General precautions
Always burn within sight and away from drafts and things that can catch fire. Keep out of reach from children and pets and don't burn for more than 4 hours at a time. Discontinue using of candle when there's 1.3cm of wax left.
Containers can be washed and reused for plant propagation, storage of make-up brushes and more.
