Tips, Tricks & Candle Care

Here are few tips to a successful burn:

Burning your candle until the top is completely liquid wax will help stop “memory rings” from forming. Leave your candle so the wax melts to the edge of the container. This will create a large enough "melt pool" and ensure that your candle burns evenly and for its full life. Usually 3 - 4 hours is needed to do this. When you re-light a candle, always trim the wick before each use, be sure not to trim the wicks too low as the wick can drown in the wax as it melts. Keep the wicks at 5mm always, otherwise you'll get excess smoke and black soot.

It is really important to TRIM YOUR WICKS every time before you burn.

Where you place you candle also plays a big part in the burn – never leave a candle near a window or in a draught, where there is wind and never against a wall or furniture. Last thing you want to do is burn the house down.

Some of my candles may produce candle soot when the candle starts to get closer to the bottom. The closer to the bottom the flame is the less access to oxygen it has. Remember to leave at least 1cm of wax in the bottom... 

Ps: Don’t pour the wax down the sink, pour into something heat proof and place in the bin. Don’t pour into the garden, you could kill the ants and suffocate the worms.

"Wet Spots" (non glass adhesion) may occur due to temperature changes in my studio and or transit - Because I can't control Mother Nature, I am unable to replace candles that have wet spots. "Frosting" (bubble bits on the top) is actually a unique and natural effect of using vegetable waxes, especially soy. The wax is trying to return back to its natural form and as a result it begins to crystallize.

No candle is "Natural", so if anyone is telling you it is - I would be questioning their motives. Candles are also not triple scented... this is another marketing tool. One just needs to use premium grade essential oils and/or fragrance oils.
