How do I use a wax melt?

Our wax melts should be used in a melt warmer. Just place the melt or a piece of it in the top of the warmer. If you are using a conventional warmer, you will need to place an unscented tea light in the bottom of the warmer. If it is an electric warmer, simply plug it in and turn on.

Why does the wick of my candle sometimes form a “mushroom” shape?

This can happen if soot accumulates on the wick of your candle. Simply extinguish the candle, wait until the wax is cold again, cut the wick with a Wick Trimmer and re-light. Visit our Candle Care page for more details.

How can I avoid my jar blackening?

To avoid soot deposits on your candle, trim the wick of your candle before each new use (using a wick trimmer). If there is soot on the glass of your candle, you can clean it with damp paper towels. Visit our Candle Care page for more details.

How can I reduce the size of the flame?

To avoid large flames on your candle, trim the wick of your candle before each new use (using a wick trimmer). Wait until the wax is cool before doing so. 

Why is there wax left in my candle?

For safety reasons, our candles will self-extinguish at the end of the candle, with some wax remaining, usually around 1cm. This is to prevent the glass base of the candle overheating.
