CANDLE CARE

Burning Instructions

To keep your candles burning safely and longer, we advise you never to burn candles for more than 4 hours or less than 1 hour, and to never leave them unattended. To obtain the optimum burn, it's important to allow the entire surface of the candle to become molten, preventing tunnelling. Trust Candle Delight to care for your candles so you can enjoy their relaxing scents for longer.

Cleaning Instructions

To remove excess wax, leave your vessel in a freezer overnight to allow the wax to shrink. Remove the wax, rinse the vessel with hot (not boiling) water and polish with a soft cloth. Allow the glass to return to room temperature before washing with warm soapy water. Leaving a pillow of wax (approx.10mm TCB) at the bottom of the candle will make removing and cleaning the wax easier and prevent your votive from overheating).

Our Wax

Our vegan-friendly wax is made from responsibly sourced soy. Our wax is not hazardous to your health and does not pose any adverse effects to the environment and the burning of our candles do not emit any hazardous substances. 

Trimming your wick

Trimming the wick of your candle is important for a clean burn, maintain an even flame, enhance scent throw, and ensure safety.

To trim the wick of your candle, please follow these steps:
Ensure the candle is completely cool and solidified.
Use scissors, a wick trimmer, or a specialised wick cutter.
Trim the wick to about 1/4 inch (6 mm) in length, removing any charred or blackened parts.
Dispose of the trimmed wick remnants properly.
Light the candle as usual, and enjoy a clean, even burn.
