Once you've burnt the candle down to the bottom with a small amount of wax remaining, soak the glass or tin in very warm, soapy water. Once the wax has softened, gently clean it out with paper towel or a rag. The warm water should loosen the remainder of the wick and metal wick holder. Discard, dry and re purpose! You can also put it in the freezer for a day or two, then tap it out.
Please follow our simple burning guide to ensure a safe, clean burn, straight down the sides of the glass container with little or no wastage. Never move a burning candle as the candle glass can be extremely hot. Once extinguished, leave to cool completely prior to moving.
I. Ideally use a click lighter or bbq lighter to ignite candle
II. Burn candle until the liquid wax pool reaches each side of the glass to avoid tunnelling
III. Keep the wick trimmed to 1/8th of an inch by either snapping off the excess wick with your fingers when the candle is cold or using the wick trimmer available in our store
IV. Keep the candle wax free of any loose wick trimmings
V. Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time
VI. Do not leave candle unattended & ensure it is positioned away from pets & children
VII. Ensure you position the candle on a stable, heat resistant surface, away from curtains and drafts
You may notice small liquid beads, known as sweating, on the candle surface; natural soy wax is very sensitive to fluctuations in temperature and this is a normal occurance, as we do not use additives to prevent it occuring. This does not affect the performance of the candle. It's not necessary, however, you can remove this by simply wiping with paper towel prior to burning.
We choose to keep our candles free of colour dyes, so you may notice natural discolouration at times due to the hue of the fragrance oil. Parrafin waxes typically create a strong scent candle. Due to our use of natural waxes you'll notice our fragrances are more subtle and delicate in nature.
Our candles are like vampires; keep out of the sun! They can melt in a hot car or direct sunlight. Afterall, our candles are light for nocturnal people!
