Getting the Most Out of Your Candles

We test and approve each individual candle and fragrance to ensure that we provide you with a premium quality candle. However, once the candle arrives at your doorstep we are no longer in control of how it will be burned or cared for; you are!  This is why we include candle care instructions with each candle we sell, to ensure that you will get the best possible candle experience from our beautifully handmade candles.

Please have a look at our safety and care instructions below to get the most out of your soy candle experience.

Soy Candles

Safety & Care Instructions:-

  • Trim wick to 1/4″ each time before lighting, only trim the wick when it has completely cooled of and the wax has hardened. Be sure to not over trim the wick. If the wick is too short it will result in too small of a flame and the melt pool will not reach the edges of the container.
  • Keep wick centered and melt pool free of wick trimmings matches and debris at all times.
  • When you first light your candle, allow the wax to pool all the way to the outer edges of the container. This is called a melt pool. Allowing a full melt pool guarantees an even burn (no tunneling) and maximum fragrance throw. If you do not allow a full melt pool you may get wax remaining alongside the sides of your jar.
  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. Alternatively dip the wick in wax to distinguish the candle and then set the wick upright and centre again ready for the next burn.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended and keep lit candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Remove all packaging
  • Please remember, candles must be burned away from drafts and on a stable heat resistant surface.
  • Please DO NOT allow water or moisture to mix with the wax. This can cause splattering and popping of the wax.
  • Candle care and burning is a responsibility. Please burn wisely.  Keep candles away from children, pets and curtains.  All candles come with a warning label attached to the bottom,  please read this before burning your candle.
  • For margin of safety don’t burn a candle all the way down.  Discontinue burning when only 1/2″ of wax remains.
  • Never burn your candle on or near anything flammable, or for more than 3-4 hours at a time.
  • Keep candles out of direct sunlight and do not store in temperatures over 80 degrees.
  • Never touch a burning candle or move a votive or container candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Make sure a candle is completely extinguished and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
  • Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes too high.

Soy Melts

Because our soy melts are 100% natural soy wax they do not evaporate. After the scent has burned off, simply pour the old soy wax in a lined rubbish bin or wait till the tart gets hard then gently tap and remove it from the oil burner. DO NOT pour soy wax down your sink as this will clog your drains as the wax cools down.

Safety & Care Instructions:-

  • Place your oil burner in a safe, stable situation, away from drafts and anything flammable and also well out of the reach of children or pets.
  • Place one of the soy melt cubes in the top of the oil burner (do not add water). Light a tea light candle in the base of the oil burner and allow the wax to melt and allow the fragrance to captivate the room.
  • For a more intense fragrant experience you can use a similarly scented tealight candle.
  • Reseal the clamshell pack to retain the fragrance of the remaining melts.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended and keep lit candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • After extinguishing the flame the soy melt tart will cool and it will solidify again.
