Candle Care

To get the most out of your olive candle please read the following instructions:


Always Trim wick to 6mm before lighting to ensure you can enjoy maximum burn time of your candle.


Place burning candles at least 10cm apart. If you place them together you will loose a lot of wax through drips and potentially ruin the entire candle. 

Candles burn best in still air. Avoid drafts to avoid drip and smoke. If you cant avoid a draft please ensure you turn your pillar regularly so it evenly burns and no melted wax leaks. But if you love the way the drips look go for it! Just be mindful of the surface you are burning on and that this will shorten the life of your candle.

Allow wax to burn close to outer edges then extinguish flame to avoid drips and keep your candle burning evenly each burn. If you wish to burn for a longer period of time, extinguish flame, allow wax to harden completely and then relight. 

To avoid dripping wax do not leave your candle unattended. This may cause your candle to leak and shorten the overall life of the candle. 


Take care when extinguishing the flame, we suggest a candle snuffer or gently dip the wick into the wax & draw out straight away so it does not set in the wax (candle scissors or a pair of metal tweezers do the trick, but please take care to avoid burns). 


If your wick becomes stuck in the wax when set, gently heat the wax around the wick & use a pair of metal tweezers or candle scissors to gently pull the wick up and out of the wax.
