Storage & warnings

How to store your candle:

  • After use, once the glass has cooled, place the lid on the jar to protect your candle from dust which can cause problems when burning and dull the fragrance.
  • If there is condensation on your candle, wipe with a paper towel before burning.
  • Don't store your candle for too long as the fragrance can be affected over time.
  • To clean & reuse your candle jars - Put your candle jar in the freezer for a few hours. It will then be easy to chip away any remaining wax with an old spoon. Use hot soapy water to clean any residue.
  • All our candle wax is natural and plant based so you can add it to your composter.
  • Reuse or repurpose your candle jars as plant pots or even for growing your own food. Don't let your jar end up in landfill!

Candle use warnings:

  • Never leave your burning candle unattended.
  • Don't burn near flammable materials.
  • Keep away from drafts, children & pets.
  • Don't allow the flame to touch the glass.
  • Glass may become hot during use.
  • Leave cms between burning candles.
  • If skin irritation or rash occurs or you feel unwell, seek medical advice.
