What if it burns un evenly?

We recommend that you burn the candle for a minimum of 2 hours and max of 4 hours every time, this will allow the wax to fully pool to the edges of the vessel which will create an even burn. Burning for less than 2 hours may make the wax not burn evenly which could reduce the overall burn time.

Should I trim my wick?

Ensure that you trim the wick to about 1cm before relighting. Do not relight when the wax level is less than 1cm.

How to burn your candle

  • Light your candle in a well-ventilated room, away from drafts, or fans, which can cause sooting (black marks on the jar), or rapid, uneven burning.
  • We recommend that you burn the candle for a minimum of 2 hours and max of 4 hours every time, this will allow the wax to fully pool to the edges of the vessel which will create an even burn.
  • Make sure you stop burning your candle when 10mm of wax remains at the bottom, keeping an eye on a burning candle when the wax is low.
  • Use a snuffer to extinguish your candle, blowing it out can cause some of the wick to drop into the wax and slightly damage the wick.
  • Do not leave your candles unattended and placed away from children and pets and always place candles on a heat-resistant base and set on a level stable surface

How to care for your wicks

  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and matches, as debris in the wax can act as a secondary wick, encouraging your candle to burn faster.
  • After extinguishing the flame with a snuffer, centre and straighten the wick. Burning for too long can cause the wick to move, or slant. If you see a flaming wick come close to the vessel wall, extinguish the flame and straighten the wick to prevent the vessel from cracking.
  • Long, or crooked wicks can create high flames, smoking, or sooting. Trimming the wick to 1cm (when the wax has set) is the easiest way to prevent this.
