Candle Care:
To get the best use out of your candle, here are 4 golden rules:
  1. Never burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  1. Once lit, do not move your candle.
  1. Before blowing out, always ensure the wax has melted to the circumference of the container.  If you don't do this, it leads to an unequal burn and deep holes in the centre.
  1. When you re-light a candle, always trim any tiny black mushroom ends of wicks before each use. Otherwise, you'll get a lot of black soot from the wick being too long.
