Please follow these simple tips in order to keep your candle burning as cleanly as possible, for as long as possible.


• Always keep wick trimmed to approximately 1cm.

• Trim the "mushroom" off of the wick prior to each burn in order to reduce excess smoke while burning and after extinguishing. 

• During the first burn, allow the wax to pool to the edges of the vessel.  This should take between 3-4 hours.  This step is very important to maximise the life of your candle.  

• Allow the wax to melt to the edge of the vessel during every burn to ensure your candle does not "tunnel".

• Never relight your candle until the wax has fully set from the previous burn.

• Keep your burning candle on a heat resistant surface and away from drafts, children and pets. 

• Never move a burning candle. 

Once your candle has reached the end of its life, simply wash the vessel with hot, soapy water and it'll be ready for its new life as a pen / pencil holder; a vase, or storage for shells; beads, and any other odds and ends. 

A note about soy wax:

Due to the chemical structure of soy wax, small variances are likely to occur from candle to candle before; during, and after burning.  This is completely normal and in no way is a reflection of the candle quality, but rather a subtle reminder of its artisanal and hand crafted creation. 


If you have any questions regarding the life of or the burn of your candle, please feel free to drop us a note,
