CANDLES

storage

store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area

keep out of direct sunlight

keep out of reach of children and pets

store away from sources of ignition

before burning

trim wick to 5mm before first burn and following future burns (when the wax is set), untrimmed wicks cause sooting, smoking & high flames.

keep the wax pool clear of debris, wick trimmings and matches

light your candle in a well ventilated room free of draughts or fans, lots of airflow may cause your candle to soot, or cause rapid, uneven burning.

burn candle on a level, heat resistant surface

during burn

burn candle for at least two-three hours to avoid tunnelling, this is where the wax pool melts down the middle but misses the wax towards the edge of the jar. tunnelling shortens candle lifetime, may cause flame to extinguish further down the candle and wastes lots of precious fragrance in the left over wax.

do not burn the candle for more than four hours at a time, to prevent large flames, soot, smoke and the vessel becoming too hot.

when burning three-wick candles, ensure all three wicks are lit during burn to avoid tunnelling and problems keeping the wicks lit in further burns.

after burn

following extinguishing flame using a candle snuffer, centre and straighten the wick. burning the candle for too long can cause wicks to tilt, if you see a flaming wick come close to the vessel wall extinguish immediately to prevent vessel cracking. 

allow candle to completely cool before re lighting.

stop burning candle when 10mm of wax remains at the bottom

All of our candles are hand poured by Kate in our Nottinghamshire workshop. Our wax is carefully heated and melted to our tried and tested strict temperature regime, to ensure stability between batches.

Our candles are vegan friendly and animal cruelty free and all components are carefully sourced from UK businesses in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint.

We test burn a candle from each batch for quality, as batch results can vary slightly using natural ingredients. AT Candle & Coaster HQ you can expect a candle burning in each room at almost all times.
