Candles are complex and burning can be influenced by a multitude things.
To ensure your candle burning is an enjoyable experience this page will give you comprehensive instructions for responsible,
safe burning, and tips on handling your candles to maximise burning times and burning pleasure.
If the wick is too long, trim it to between 5 and 10 mm.
For the first burn of any candle make sure you have plenty of time to set the burn memory to avoid ‘tunnelling’ and a waste of wax. Don’t extinguish it until the wax pool around the wick has reached the outside edge of the candle. Once it has reached that point, you can extinguish your candle as the burn memory has been set. Your candle should now burn in a slow, even path. If you blow out your candle too soon on the initial burn, your candle will tunnel and never burn properly, leaving an excess of wax around the edge.
Burn for no more than 4 hours at a time.
If a mushroom develops on the wick of your candle, extinguish it and let the candle cool completely. Then remove the mushroom by trimming the wick just below where the mushroom has formed. If the mushroom isn’t removed the candle flame will be quiet large and have a tendency to smoke.
Candles must be placed a minimum of 50 mm apart.
Lit candles should never be left unattended.
Never burn a candle near anything flamable. Burning candles should be kept away from furniture, curtains, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations etc. and never place them too close to a wall.
Place candles on a stable heat resistant surface.
Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.
Never move a burning candle as it/its container can become extremely hot when in use. Please allow the candle to cool and solidify before moving.
Please burn your candle in draught free conditions to stop the candle from dripping or smoking.
Discontinue to use the candle when 5 mm of wax remains.
Flammable: Do not use near a naked flame/heat source.
Do not place directly onto a synthetic, polished or painted surface.
Do not need to turn the reeds.
Avoid skin contact and do not consume.
Keep out of reach of children and pets.
WAX BAR MELTS:
These are scented wax without a wick. Wax melts (or as they are sometimes called “wax tarts”) should be used with a burner. Ensure that the dish is wider and deeper than the melt so that it will contain all the wax when in liquid form.
Use only unscented tea lights in your burner and ensure there is sufficient space above and around the tealight so that it does not overheat and crack the burner. Be aware that the wax pool will be very hot and very liquid so it should be placed in a safe location where it will not be moved or knocked over. When the melt no longer scents the room, let it solidify in the dish and after it has hardened pop it out with a knife and discard it.
These are soft scented wax candles that will turn to 100% liquid form when lit. Please place in an appropriate glass holder before lighting.
