Candle Care- A few simple steps to get the most from your scented candle
Trim the wick to 5mm before lighting and relighting and avoid placing the candle in a draught. This ensures an even burn, prevents smoking and keeps the wax pool free from debris.
Allow the candle to become liquid across the entire surface by burning for a minimum time before extinguishing: for votives around 1 hour, medium candles around 2 hours and large candles around 3 hours. Over time this ensures all the wax is used.
The wick should be upright and in the centre, reposition if necessary soon after the candle has been extinguished and the wax has cooled slightly.
Burn the candle for a maximum of 4 hours at a time and for votives around 2 hours at a time.
Allow to cool and solidify then follow the steps above each time you re-light.
Keep candles away from children, pets and flammable materials.
Protect the surface on which the candle rests, never let the flame burn to the glass candle base and do not leave a burning candle unattended.
