Candle Burning Tips and Safety

Extend the life of your beautiful candles ..heres some safety guidelines to keep your home safe and tips to keep your candles looking gorgeous.

Do not attempt to handle or remove the crystals from the candle when the wax is hot or whilst lit.  As the wax liquifies on the first burn the crystals will gently glide beneath the wax.  Our crystals are carefully placed away from the wick so that they do not effect the burn.  Your candle will burn beautifully all the way to the edge. 

Never leave a lit candle unattended ,  keep away from children, pets curtains and loose fabrics and out of draughts. Avoid being close to fans, air conditioners , heat pumps.  

Do not burn in children's bedrooms.

Always burn on a heat resistant surface ie a coaster.

Do not touch or move a candle while its burning or while the wax is liquified. 

Do not touch or move a candle until its completely cooled.

Don't burn when young children are around.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Do not go to sleep whilst a candle it burning.

Don't burn a candle all the way down.  For safety allow 1inch of wax in the container.

1). The first burn is the most important.  Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the vessel every time this avoids tunnelling.   If the candle isn't burnt for long enough it will create a "memory ring" and each subsequent burn it will continue to tunnel down for the rest of its life,  wasting your candles maximum burn time. 

Let your candle cool and reset for about two hours before beginning another burn.

2)  Trim the wick before every burn - before lighting, trim the wick to 1/4 inch using scissors or a wick trimmer for a clean safe burn & increased candle lifespan.

Wicks that are left untrimmed can become to long and can cause uneven burning, it will likely 'mushroom' causing smoking & flaring .  

Your candle will burn up to  25% longer if you trim it after each burn.

2). Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the vessel every time this avoids tunnelling. 

3) Do not burn your candle for longer than 3 hours at a time.

Enjoy your blissful moments in candle light!
