LOVE
your candle
Discover the very best in
candle care, and how to
create the perfect burn!
1
Trim your Wick
Use our handy Wick Trimmer to keep your wick neat and tidy.
Trim your wick to 3mm before each burn.
2
Use an Illuma-Lid®
Jar Candle Topper
Your candle’s best friend! They look beautiful and help steady the flame for a clean, even burn.
Choose your favourite design and use with our Medium and Large Jar Candles.
3
Allow to Pool
Let the top layer of wax liquefy and pool to the edges to avoid tunnelling.
Wonder how long this should take? We recommend, that for every 1cm in diameter, you burn for 30 minutes - so a Large Jar Candle would be 4 hours.
4
Protect your Surfaces
Use our decorative Candle Shades and Trays to prevent heat damage to your surfaces and encourage an even burn.
Use with our Small, Medium and Large Jar Candles.
5
Use a Candle Snuffer
to gently dowse the flame when you’re done to prevent smoking and wax escaping the candle.
6
The 1cm Rule
We never like to see the end of our favourite fragrance, but once your candle wax is 1cm from the bottom; it's officially finished.
Time to choose another favourite to burn.
