All our candles are hand poured and made using soy wax.
A candle made from soy wax burns cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won't release toxins into the air as they burn.
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CANDLES
YOUR FIRST BURN IS VERY IMPORTANT
You should always burn your candle for a couple of hours when first lighting it. This is to allow the top layer of wax to fully melt, ensuring even burning when next lighting it. Wax has a memory so it is important not to skip this step to make sure you get the most even burning out of your candle.
AVOID DRAUGHTY AREAS
Another way to make your candle last longer is to avoid placing your candle in a draughty area, as this means your candle will be consumed more rapidly.
TRIM YOUR WICK BETWEEN BURNS
Trimming the wick is very important. The longer the wick the quicker your candle will burn, so trimming it will make it last longer. It also prevents black smoke from occurring and ensures the glass isn't over-heating. Trim it every time you use your candle and make sure it isn't longer than a couple millimetres – the same length as when new.
USE THE LID PROVIDED
We recommend using our lids to prevent dust from settling on the candle if you aren't using it regularly. If dust has settled, you can use a humid cotton pad to remove the dust from the top of the wax.
