Candle Care



Ensure the wick is trimmed to ¼” prior to each burn. This will ensure a clean and soot free burn.


On your first light, burn until wax pool meets the glass (approx. 2 hours), this will imprint a memory and prevent an uneven burn (“tunnelling”)


Ensure the wick is centred, recentre the wick while the wax is still molten. If the candle is creating an uneven burn, simply adjust the wick


Do not burn your candle for longer than 4 hours (2 hours for the mini)

Allow the candle to cool before relighting



Once you have finished enjoying the candle, please give our glass jar a new life. It can be reused, so get creative as a planter, stationery holder or makeup brush holder.

To clean your candle jar simply pour hot water into the jar and wait for the wax to float to the top. Once the wax has solidified and the water has cooled, pop out the wax and wipe out any remaining wax with a cloth. Please dispose wax in the bin, not down the drain.


Keep candles away from sunlight and heat sources - candles will lose their scent and may discolour when placed in direct sunlight.

Keep the burn pool clean; keep the top dust free

Simply wipe any black residue that may occur inside the jar with damp cloth

Do not leave your candles unattended and place away from drafts, children and pets

Note: Our candles are 100% natural so changes in colour and appearance can occur over time, “sweating” can also occur with fluctuations in temperature causing oils to separate. The performance of the candle is not impacted in either situation.
