How do I burn candles safely?
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Keep lit candle in sight at all times!
Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire, like loose papers, fabric, bedding, books, drapes, decorations, etc. Play it safe and give your candle nice clear area to sit on.
Keep lit candles away from drafts--open windows, air conditioners, vents, fans, etc.
Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Extinguish the flame if it becomes too high or flickers repeatedly.
Trim the wick and check for drafts before re-lighting.
If there is any chance you might doze off to sleep, blow out your candle immediately!
If you’ve created a large wax pool during your burn, blow it out gently to avoid wax splattering.
Don’t try to take a selfie while holding a lit candle (guilty…)
What are your tips for candle burning perfection?
GET MELTY WITH IT: Make sure your first light liquefies the entire top layer of wax. Otherwise, you’ll be left with a “memory ring,” which causes the wax to tunnel rather than melt evenly. We recommend Burning for around 4 hours each on your first 2 burns. You really want your melt pool to spread as far towards the edges as possible to avoid tunnelling
SNIP THE WICK: Wicks are happiest when at a very short (⅛ inch) height. After your first burn, use a pair of scissors to trim the wick to the right length, ensuring a steady, ash-free flame.
KNOW WHEN TO QUIT: We recommend when you get towards the end don’t burn all the way down: swap your candle for a new one when ½ inch of wax remains. By this time the out er wax should form a sort of cradle.
DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR WAX: Want to extend the fun? you can place a tea light in your left over wax which should provide a wind barrier.
hoW STRONG ARE THE SCENTS?
We spent a lot of time experimenting and tweaking our formulation in order to get the strength just right. Overall, we prefer fragrance notes that are more subtle in character and avoid scents that may overpower. Feel like we went too strong or too weak?

What size are the candles?
All of our candles are 6"x6" so thats pretty big! On average that equates to around 75 hours of burn time.
