Top safety tips for burning candles

Our candles come with a safety label.  This is to ensure customers are well informed on the correct and sensible use of our products.

In addition to standard safety guidelines, please see below for some good advice when buying and using our candles.

  • Ensure the wick is kept trimmed to approximately 5mm in length to control the flame height and burn time.

  • Avoid burning candles in draughty areas to encourage an even burn

  • Burn candles for 3-4 hours at a time to achieve optimum burn and longevity

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or around children and pets.

The marvellous multiwick

When our multiwick candle is carefully lit, notice that a pool of wax will begin to form around each wick.  As it continues to burn, the individual pools with join together.  On a 3 wick candle the pools join to form a shamrock shape.

Leave the wax to continue to burn until approximately 1cm from the edge of the candle before being extinguished.  This should take around 3-4 hours and each subsequent burn should be around this time to ensure it burns evenly.  The side of the multiwick should then gradually start to curl inwards and the centre hollow out.
