  • Always leave at least 10cm between burning candles.
  • Do not burn candles anywhere near anything that can catch fire.
  • Do not move a burning candle, the wax will be fluid when lit.
  • Place the candle in an area where there is no draught or near a source of heat.

  • Keep your wick suitably trimmed.
  • Do not leave matches in the candle pool.
  • Remove fingerprints and dust from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.
  • Any wax drippings can be removed from candleholders by running hot water over them. 
  • Never use a knife or a sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass / tin / marble holder. It might scratch the container.
  • Do not burn candles in any glass item not specifically designed for candles. Glass candleholders are specifically manufactured to withstand the temperature changes that occur when burning a candle. Everyday glassware is not designed for burning candles.
  • Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlight. Candles may fade if they are left in bright light for an extended period of time.
  • Always extinguish candles with care and attention.
