LIGHT UP & lets go with pure essential oils. All of our candles contain pure essential oils. These complement and enhance the fragrance, and can help alter or enhance your moods and emotion. Some scents
have the ability to help unlock almost forgotten nostalgias, and many fragrances contain subtle triggers which can help stimulate in a variety of ways. We also make each and every one by hand and they can burn for
over 30 hours too!
Getting the most out of your candle
Before lighting your candle, we recommend trimming the wick so about 5mm is peeking through above the wax. You should try to keep it at this length every time you burn your candle just to stop any smoking. Did you know that candles have a memory? We know it sounds silly but it’s true! The first time you light your candle, make sure you let the wax melt all the way to the outside edge. If you don’t, your candle will tunnel. (This means the candle will burn down the middle leaving the outside edges unable to melt. It’s pretty wasteful.) Once you’ve burnt your candle so much that only 5mm (1/4”) of wax remains, discontinue use of your candle.
When not in use, store your candles in a cool, dark place. If your candle comes with a lid like our Tin Candles, try to remember to put it back on just to help the fragrance stick around a little bit longer.
Stay safe when burning candles
We’re sure you’ve heard this said until the cows come home but we can’t stress enough how important it is to never leave a candle unattended. We also think it’s important not to fall asleep whilst your candle is still alight. Place your candle on a heat resistant surface (you can get special candle plates and holders for this), and ensure it’s kept away from any curtains or draughts, and any sources of heat such as TV’s or radiators. Do not move your candle if it is alight or if the wax is still melted. Try to keep the melted wax pool free of any debris, wick trimmings or matches. Always keep your candle out of reach of any children, and also make sure it’s in a place where no pets can fiddle with it. Most importantly, always make sure you have a working smoke alarm whether you’re a candle user or not.
