Candle Care

To get the best out of your candle and to also ensure it is burning safely, here are a few tips and guidelines to follow!

All candles are hand poured myself with 100% high quality coconut soy wax, eco cotton wick or woodwicks,  fragrance oils and dyes. Every item I use to make the candles are not tested on animals and suitable for vegans. All candles and wax melts are CLP compliant and information can be found on the underside of the candle lid, safety labels on the bottom of the candle.

  • Coconut soy wax is environmentally friendly and burns cleaner than other waxes. It is very easy to clean jars after use so that these can be repurposed. They can be recycled or if you would like to return jars to me to be used again then reach out and I’ll give you a discount code to use in store once I receive the jars. 

  • Frosting (white marks on the candle), cracking and wet spots (wax coming away from jar) can often be seen on coconut soy candles. This is completely normal and will have no impact on the burn of your candle in any way.

  • If your candle is topped with dried flowers or crystals, I advise you remove these before burning and can be done easily.

  • Remember to trim your wick before each burn to 5mm (woodwicks may need to be trimmed shorter as they burn better when closer to the wax) 

  • If at any point you notice blackness around the jar, extinguish the candle and allow to cool before wiping the glass and trimming your wick.

  • On the first burn of your candle, allow the candle to burn long enough that the wax pool reaches the edges of the vessel, this can take up to 4 hours depending on the size of your candle. If a full melt pool is not achieved, it can result in tunnelling, an uneven burn and eventually a candle which may not stay lit. 

  • Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time, or 2-3 hours for the 125ml jars. 

  • Stop burning your candle when there is approximately 1/2 inch of wax left in the jar.  Do not let your whole candle become melted and never burn to the bottom of the jar. The coconut soy wax can also be used as wax melts so any left over wax can be removed from the jar and used within a wax melter.

  • Handle with care as the jar and wax may become hot.

  • Always burn on a heat resistant surface.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.

  • Avoid drafts, direct sunlight and vibrations.

  • Never burn a candle near anything flammable and keep clear of foreign objects including matches and wick trimmings. When not in use, keep your candle covered to avoid dust and other foreign objects entering the wax.

  • Caring for your candle will prolong its life, ensure an even burn and achieve the greatest scent throw.
