Make sure you remove all packaging from your candle prior to lighting – including the linen cardboard dust cover. This can be retained for future use once your candle has been extinguished, the wax solidified and the whole candle is cold.
Prior to lighting always make sure the wick is trimmed to 5mm, this prevents smoking. Should your candle smoke when lit, extinguish it and trim the wick.
Place your candle on a heat proof, level surface, particularly important for larger candles as it helps prevent uneven melting of the wax.
Ensure all flammable materials are kept well away from a lit candle.
Keep your candles away from children and pets.
Always allow the melt pool of your burning candle to reach the sides of the candle glass. Not allowing it to do so is the reason candles “tunnel”.
Keep your lit candles out of draughts and away from other heatsources (such as other lit candles) it will cause them to flicker and smoke.
Never, never leave a lit candle unattended – it really is not worth taking the risk ever.
AND most importantly – Enjoy your candle it is made with care, dedication and love.
