HINTS & TIPS

Achieving the Best Burn Time

  • When you first light your candle always let the candle burn to the outside edge. If the wax is not allowed to melt from edge to edge it will create a hole in the centre of the candle and subsequent burns will then mean that the wick will continue to tunnel and burn that way for the life of the candle.
     

  • Candles should not be burned for more than 3-4 hours.

  • On each burn, allow the entire top layer to become a pool of liquid wax and you’ll get the best scent possible.
     

  • Keep the wick trimmed to about 1 centimetre at all times. ​

  • Use the candle's lid or a candle snuffer to extinguish the flame so that the wick will not drift off centre and also to prevent wax splash.

  • If your candle is in a draught you may notice it burning off centre where the liquid wax is closer to one side. There are 2 solutions here:

    • Turn your candle before each lighting

    • Use a knife or a screwdriver to push the wick gently away from the side it is closest to, towards the centre.

Why soy wax?

  • Soy wax is considered to be much better for humans, pets and the environment than traditional paraffin candles. Paraffin wax is petroleum based, whereas my candles are made from soy wax so there isn't the associated petro-carbon soot when it burns.

  • It is sustainable, renewable, biodegradable and washable. Once the candle has burned through, the glass jar can be washed with soap and water and reused.
