CANDLE CARE

CARING FOR YOUR CANDLES:

Wooden wick candles are a bit different from the traditional cotton wick, they burn longer, cleaner and crackle too. They do however require a bit of extra care and attention, but trust us it is worth it. 

 

  1. Always ensure you trim your wick before each use, and remove all charred wood from the previous burn. 

  2. Ensure that the candle burns long enough to let the melt across the entire diameter of your candle, this is especially important on the first burn. The first burn is important as this determines how well the candle will continue to burn. 

  3. If the candle self extinguishes, then ensure that all charred wick from the previous burn is removed and then hold a lit match against the wick for 20 - 30 seconds. 

  4. Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time, and never leave it unattended. 

 

We are so proud of our product and range, but please let me know if you have any queries, questions or hesitations.

WAX MELT CARE

CARING FOR WAX MELTS:

Our wax melts come in a pack of 6, weighing approximately 7grams each and they last approximately 8-10 hours per melt. 

 

Each set of melts come packaged in a glassine bag, with a scent label, all of the packaging is eco friendly, so it is recyclable or biodegradable.

On the backside of the packages have the relevant CLP Allergen and safety information.

 

Caring and how to use your Wax melts: 

  1. Place your burner in a safe and stable location, out of reach of children, pets and away from drafts and anything flammable.

  2. Place one wax melt into the melting pot at the top of the burner. (Do not add water). Reseal the bag or pop the remaining wax melts in an airtight container to keep them safe, ensure these are kept away from children and pets.

  3. Light a tealight candle (unscented) in the base of the burner and allow the wax to melt - when melted your room will be filled with the beautiful aroma. 

  4. Do not leave a candle unattended, including a tealight. 

  5. After extinguishing the flame the soy wax will then solidify again in the burner. Do not touch this until it has solidified.

  6. Re-use the wax melt until no scent is released

  7. To remove the wax melt once the scent has gone, warm the burner up for a short time until you can remove the block of wax, wipe clean and it is then ready for you to reuse. 

  8. You can also use these wax melts as an air freshener, purchase one of our little canvas bags or pop them into some foil and pop them into your wardrobe, drawers or bathroom. Please always remember to keep them out of reach of children and pets.
