Candle Care


ABOUT OUR CANDLES

Our candles are produced using 100% soy wax. Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. Its eco-friendly, sustainable, renewable and has a cleaner, longer burn time than more traditional paraffin/petroleum based candles.

We know everything that goes into our scents and essential oils. We’re proud to say we are Phlalate free, Paragon free and Vegan friendly.  

From our London studio, our candles are hand poured into recycled dark amber apothecary jars, which give off a warm, calming hue.

As our vessels are recycled, small imperfections are normal and not a defect. 

 

CANDLE CARE

When burning your candle for the first time we recommend that you burn the candle for at least 3 hours. This will allow the wax to melt all the way to the edge of the jar (also known as the melt pool) and will help avoid tunneling. Tunneling is where only part of the wax melts and creates a tunnel effect through the centre of the candle. Tunneling creates a shorter burn life.  

It is essential that you trim the wick to 5mm (1/4 inch) before every burn. You can do this with a wick trimmer or even your fingers, just make sure the wick has cooled. Trimming the wick will ensure you get the best results from your candle, stop the flame from becoming too large and emitting unsavory black smoke.

When lighting the candle, ensure it is free from any dissuaded wick or debris. Burn the candle on a level heat resistant surface and away from flammable objects. Be careful when extinguishing the candle as the container will be hot.

We don’t recommend burning the candle for longer than 4 hours at a time. If you experience a high flame, repeated smoking or flickering, extinguish the flame and allow to cool. Once cool, trim the wick as advised above and re-light.

Drafts and candles don’t work well together, make sure you don’t burn your candle anywhere there is likely to be a draft.

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Please burn candles out of reach of children and pets.

 

I’VE FINISHED MY CANDLE, WHAT NOW?

Well……If you haven’t already ordered a new candle, what are you waiting for?

Once your candle gets down to 1/2 inch, its finished. Never relight or continue to use after this as it’s not safe.

But before you discard the container, why not recycle it into something useful? Simply grab a spoon, and scoop out the remaining wax and wick. Using a cloth, a little soap and warm water wipe out any remaining wax and residue. 

Now you have a beautiful, empty glass amber jar and hundreds of potential uses……Pen holder, plant pot, make up brush holder, money pot, the list goes on.

We would love to see what you recycle your containers into, get tagging us on our social channels.
