Burning Your Candle
The first burn of your candle is the most important. To prolong the life of your candle and to get the best results, set aside enough time so that your candle can remain lit continuously until a melt pool has formed across the surface, this can take 3 – 4 hours, this sets the memory ring of the wax and prevents tunnelling.
In between burning sessions, once the candle has cooled, remove any excess soot (clubbing) from the top of the wick and any debris from the top of the candle. The wicks may need trimming if the flame is too high, or it is smoking/flickering. Do not burn the candle once is has less than 2cms of wax in the bottom of the bowl.
Always stay safe, by making sure your candle is on a level, heat-resistant surface, and that it is not left unattended.
Do not burn for more than 4 hours
Do not allow candles burning in reach of children or pets.
Keep well away from flammable items.
Extinguish all candles if you are going out.
Do not touch or move the candle until it is completely extinguished and has cooled down.
How to clean your bowl once the candle has been burned
Once the candle has less than 2cms of wax in the base, fill the bowl with hot water. This will loosen the bases of the wicks for you to remove and dispose of them. Or you can put the candle in a warm oven and once the wax has melted, soak it up with kitchen paper or pour into a disposable container. Then you can simply clean any residual wax in the bowl with warm water and washing up liquid and leave to dry!
Re-using your bowl
We love to see our customers reusing their bowls! All our bowls are dishwasher and oven-proof. Our White, Anthracite and Black bowls are suitable for food use, however our coloured bowls (Gold, Blue, Green) are not due to a small amount of lead being used in the glazing process.
