Candle care

Did you know there are certain things you can do to prolong and look after your candle?

Tip 1 – On first lighting your candle, burn it until all the wax is liquid on the candle surface. This will ensure an even burn throughout the life of the candle. The general rule is to burn it for the same amount of hours as the diameter in inches, so if it’s 3 inches across then burn for 3 hours on first burn.

Tip 2 – Regularly repeat this burn to keep the wax open and even.

Tip 3 – To achieve the best burn, and to avoid a ‘smoky’ candle, always trim the wick a little before re-lighting the candle. Just cut the top of it off.
