Care & Maintenance Tips
Candle tunnelling is when a candle burns a tunnel through its centre, leaving a rim of hard wax around the outside.
A candle’s first burn is critical to prevent tunnelling. When you light your new candle for the first time, let it burn for one hour for every 1 inch of its diameter.
Store Candles Properly
Candle wax and fragrance can be sensitive to temperature and light. Store candles in a cool, dry place, and out of direct sunlight when not used for long periods.
Keep the Wick Trimmed
It is recommended that you trim the wick after every 4 hours of burn time. A good rule of thumb is to trim the wick to 1/8 inch before relighting.
Never Leave a Candle Unattended
The most basic and important rule of candle safety is to always keep a burning candle within sight.
Keep Out of Reach of Children and Pets
Keep candles on a high surface where they can not be easily picked up or knocked over by little ones or furry friends.
Burn on a Heat-Resistant Surface
Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use. Be sure the candleholder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
Don’t Burn for More than 4 Hours
Most candle manufacturers suggested a four-hour max burning time. At this point, the candle should be extinguished, allowed to cool for two hours, and trimmed before relighting.

Keep Away from Anything that can Catch Fire. Avoid Drafts.
Never burn a candle on or near drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, decorations or anything else that can easily catch fire.
Keep a Safe Distance Between Candles
Grouping candles can create a beautiful ambience in a room. If you like to do this, make sure to keep the candles 10cm apart.
Be Watchful for Excessive Flames and Smoke
Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly flickers, smokes or the flame becomes too high, as the candle is not burning correctly or safely.
Follow the ½ Inch Rule
Stop using a candle when half an inch of wax remains at the bottom of the jar. This will prevent possible heat damage to the surface on which the candle burns.
