Candle related queries?
What should I do if my candle isn’t burning evenly?
The wax and wicks we use are designed to burn evenly, but you also need to burn them in the correct way to ensure they melt evenly.
We recommend burning your candle for at least 2 hours to get a full melt pool and no longer than four hours. You should also not relight it (after putting out) within 45 minutes, this will ensure the wax burns in an even layer and that it is completely cooled before you relight your candle.
You should also trim the wick down to around 1cm above the wax before you light it, in order to control the size of the flame.
Following these instructions will give you the best results and help you get the most from your candles.
What does ‘scent throw’ mean?
‘Scent throw’ is how strong the fragrance smells.
‘Cold throw’ is the strength of fragrance before lighting and ‘hot throw’ is when the flame is lit.
What should I do if the flame of my candle is too big?
Large and wild flames are dangerous, and can result in fast and uneven candle burning.
If the flame of your candle is too too big, or smoking, you should blow the candle out straight away.
To prevent large flames, always ensure the wick is trimmed down to around 1cm above the wax before lighting your candle.
If you’ve trimmed the wick and the flame is still too big, or is moving around too much (wild), the wick could be receiving too much oxygen. To avoid this, make sure the candle is not placed in a draughty location.
