Candle Care

  • Always burn your candle on a heat resistance surface and avoid placing your candle in a draught.  (A draught can cause the flame to burn hotter, thus causing soot to appear)
  • When first lighting your candle allow it to burn long enough so that the wax has melted all the way to the sides of the container, thereby avoiding tunnel burning.
  • To extinguish your candle, gently push the wick into the melted wax with a cocktail pick, end of a match or similar to avoid wick smoking.  Consider purchasing a wick dipper and wick trimmer.  (An excellent addition to a candle gift)
  • Clip wick before re-lighting your candle.  Should the wick become bulbous, simply extinguish, clip and relight.
  • Discontinue using your candle when approximately 1cm of wax remains in container. This does not apply to tealights.
  • Keep your candle container away from bright sunlight.
  • To reuse your candle container, simply wash out in hot soapy water, pop in a tealight or arrange a refill with Cool Candles.
  • Enjoy your candle.
