Paired with our coconut soy wax and crackling wood wicks, our candles are a unique experience, offering a wide range of scents that are sure to suit any scent preference.
Lighting your Candle
It may take a couple of goes lighting your wood wick candle. Ensure the while wick is alight before moving the lighter, this may take up to 10 seconds.
Candle Burn Time
To prevent tunnelling and create a candle memory, the first time you light your coconut soy candle let the wax melt all the way to the edge of the glass. Never burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
Trimming your Wick
Always trim the wick before relighting. Trimming the wick will help your candle stay alight, burn evenly and longer.
Trim by pinching the charcoal off the wick with a tissue or using a pair of wick trimmers. It's important to do this before each burn as the charcoal can cause the candle to go out.
Candles burn best in still air but if you can't avoid draughts, turn the candle periodically to avoid uneven burning and possible candle collapse. A candle in a draught may also start to smoke.
Candles are sensitive to temperature and light. Fragrances with a vanilla content may yellow if exposed to sunlight or fluorescent light, this is normal and does not affect the burning of the candle. Store your candles in an upright position.
Extinguishing your Candle
It is always best to use a candle snuffer rather than blowing out to prevent wicks from drifting off centre and to avoid wax splash. This will help maximise the candles burn time.
If you get any black at the rim of your glass simply wipe it away with a damp cloth, this may be a sign that your wick is to long or your candle is being burning for longer than 4 hours.
Do not leave your candle unattended. Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours. Keep candles out of direct sunlight and away from hot temperatures.
Failure to follow these instructions may result in fire, hazard or injury.
Room Diffuser Care
Reed Diffusers are the perfect way to freshen up a living area without the need for a flame from a candle or electricity from an electric warmer.
Using your Reed Diffuser for the first time
Place reed sticks in the oil and allow for them to soak the fragrance for one hour. After 1 hour, flip the reeds to saturate the other end of the reeds.
Flip reeds every time you notice the scent dissipating. Expect a light fragrance after 24 hours.
Do not light the diffuser reeds.
Storing your Reed Diffuser
Ensure your Reed Diffuser is placed out of reach of children and pets, and is in an area where it will not be knocked over. Keep away from electrical appliances.
If spilt, clean the area immediately as the liquid may damage surfaces.
Wax Melt Care
All our melts are made from Natural Soy Wax. Soy wax is made from pure soy beans and is environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
Our soy wax melts give maximum scent throw.
Using your Wax Melts
Ensure your oil burner is on a safe and stable surface away from children, flammables and wind.
Place the soy wax pod into the top of you oil burner.
Light a tea light candle and place in the base of your oil burner.
Make sure you extinguish the flame on the tea light when leaving the room.
Reusing your Wax Melts
The melt pod will solidify after each use. You can re-use each pod for up to 10hrs burn time.
Discarding your Wax Melt
Once the fragrance in the pod is gone it will need to be replaced.
You can easily do this by letting the pod cool and solidify, place the oil burner in the freezer for a short amount of time and this will release the pod.
