The Art of Burning


We recommended trimming the wicks gently to a height of 4mm to 7mm, depending on your candle size, before every burn. When the wicks are trimmed regularly, it prevents the insides of the candle from accumulating soot from the smoking flame, and keeps blackened wicks from falling into the liquid wax. Please light all the wicks at the same time.


For the first burn, allow the wax to liquefy entirely on the surface before extinguishing the flame. By doing this, you can prevent your candle from tunneling during subsequent burns. The length of time required will depend on the size of your candle. Do not burn beyond 1cm of liquid wax once the surface has liquified. This will ensure that your candle will last longer as liquid wax evaporates much more quickly. Never burn it down to the base. Leave 1cm of wax at the bottom. Burning a candle past this point can damage the holder or even the surface it's sitting on.


Before the wax becomes completely solid, recenter the wicks with a wick dipper to ensure even burning. Make sure each wick is vertical. Feel free to wipe the insides of the candle after the wax has cooled down with a clean damp cloth to maintain its pristine condition.


Clearing the last 1cm of wax

  1. Put the candle (must be completely cooled) on a surface protected with a towel or newspaper.
  2. Pour boiling water into the candle holder.
  3. Wait for the melted wax to float to the top.
  4. Let the water cool and remove the wax. Strain the water to get rid of any small wax bits.
    (Do not pour wax down the drain.)
  5. Any lingering residue should come off with gentle scrubbing


Never leave a lit candle unattended. Never light a candle near flammable materials. Keep candles out of reach of children and animals. Keep your candle away from air currents like fans or air conditioners to avoid irregular burning, dripping or smoke. Before touching, moving or leaving your candle unattended, always wait until it is completely extinguished. Be careful with the holder when the candle is lit to avoid burns.
