Six tealights per parcel

Candle Care

1. Never leave a candle unattended.

2. Before lighting the first time, always trim the wick, and then every time before you relight.

3. Allowing the candle to burn for long enough (a good three hours should do it to melt the entire surface of the wax evenly) will help prolong its life - this prevents ‘tunnelling’.

4. Avoid placing the candle in a draught, it will make the wax burn unevenly.

5. Keep your candle out of direct sunlight when not in use.

6. Do not burn for more than four hours, it can start to generate soot and the glass will get very hot.

7. The best way to put out your candle is to dip the wick, use a skewer or something similar and gently dip into the hot wax and then make sure it doesn’t stay stuck in it.

8. Remember to recycle your glass candle once it’s all been used up.

9. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

10 .Never move a candle or tealight whilst lit

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

On the first burn, light for 4 hours to allow the melt pool to reach as far to the edge of the candle as possible. Any wax left around the edge will slowly melt as the candle burns down.

Trim your wick before relighting every time.

Do not burn for longer than 4 hours at a time. Any residual wax left at the end simply washes away in warm soapy water.

Do not let your candle burn right down to the bottom of the container. Discontinue use when 1/4’’ of wax remains

Soy is a living organism. It continues to expand, contract and change from its current form. It may also take on a frosted appearance. This is a natural occurrence and a clear indication that you have purchased a 100% soy candle
