Candle Care

Our candles are just like you. Full of personality.

Made of 100% natural and vegetable-based wax, with high grade essences, it has nothing to do with a normal candle.

Find here the tips to get the most out of your new candle.

Follow the 2 metre rule: don't place lit candles near clothes, books, curtains or anything flammable. Place them on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax.

Keep lit candles away from draughts, ceiling fans and any drafts. Never leave a lit candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep. Extinguish if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container.

A candle should not be burnt for more than four hours at a time.

For a safety margin, stop firing a candle when 2 cm of wax remains in the container.

When we find the perfect match between the wax, fragrance, and wick that we are happy with, candle is tested to exhaustion, following the recommended safety standards, and testing possible scenarios, such as a candle burning for 10 hours, or without the wick cut. You should never do this, but we guarantee that candle is safe for its lifetime. 

Our wax is a 100% vegetable wax, soft and pleasant to the touch. We take great care with it in our studio, so that each candle created, is a perfect candle. But its character makes it sensitive to temperature changes, so when it cools down after being in its liquid form, small cracks or holes can appear. We don't see this as an imperfection, but rather as a strong personality of our wax.

The wick is the most important part of a candle. In our studio we spend a lot of time testing wicks with different essences, as different densities, need different wicks. 

As such, wicks need some care. 

Try to keep your wick cut, about 0.5 cm away from the wax, to allow a clean, long lasting, and safe burn. This allows you to maximise the life of your candle, and allows the aroma to be less intense.

The wicks we use will burn out with candle, but sometimes they need help. If it gets too big, with a "mushroom" at the end, you should always cut off that small piece.

Sometimes this can happen. It is carbon build up on the tip of the wick. No problem, you should let the candle cool down, and when you can, cut your wick about 0.5 cm from the wax.

Our wax, besides having a peculiar personality, has memory. It will only burn, at most, to the last limit it burned the last time it was lit, learning how far it should burn each time it is lit.

We recommend that you always let your candle burn until it reaches the entire perimeter of the container and forms a complete melting "puddle". This way, you will be able to enjoy all the wax until the end!

If the first few firings don't cover the entire perimeter, don't worry. In the following ones, as the flame gets lower and the container warms up, the wax on the sides will eventually melt.

With all vegetable waxes, this is normal. You may have small cracks, small pits, or small spots. This does not affect the essence of candle. We think it's a small price to pay, for a 100% natural and sustainable candle , with a slow and clean combustion.

Our coconut and rapeseed wax does not have any additives, and when it cools down, small cracks may appear with the cold, or spots with the heat. After you burn it the first time, they will disappear! If you bought a candle vegetable wax, and the top of your candle is perfect... it's not just vegetable wax!

No! Always let the wax solidify before plugging your candle. This can cause air pockets to form inside the wax, which can drown the wick, and is not a good thing.

Our candles continue to emit their essence even when extinguished. We recommend using an candle snuffer (or a light puff) to blow out the candle. Use the lid of your candle as a base for your candle.

As soon as the wax in your container reaches the bottom (about 1cm), it's time to say goodbye, and buy another one! If it continues to burn, the container may become very hot.

Wash the container, and reuse it!
