Candle Care

To keep your CLC candle looking beautiful and for the best burn, your candles will need a little TLC.

Container Candles

  • When lighting your candle for the first time, burn for a minimum of 2 hours or until the wax melts across the surface of the jar to ensure an even burn.
  • Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Trim your wick before each burn to approximately 5mm to achieve the best and safest burn.
  • Stop burning your candle once the wax has reached approximately 10mm from the bottom.
  • Store your candle in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
  • When your candle is finished, remove the residue wax by placing the vessel in hot water. This will soften and lift the remaining wax for you to then scoop it out. Your vessel is now ready to be recycled or re-purposed.

Structural Candles

  • Before lighting your candle, trim the wick to 5mm.
  • Place your candle on a heat-resistant tray or plate to collect dripping wax.
  • Light your candle in a well-ventilated space, away from draughts and flammable materials.
  • Burn for at least 1 hour to create a melt pool but for no longer than 3 hours at a time. Different sized pillars and sculptural candles will have different burn times. Keep an eye on the size of your melt pool and extinguish when it is nearing the outer rim but before it has overflowed and melted down the side. This will create a memory ring which will keep your future melt pools inside of the memory ring. If your wax does overflow, embrace the beauty of “wabi sabi – finding beauty in imperfection”.
  • If burning multiple candles, place them at least 10cm apart.
  • Before relighting your candle, trim your wick to 5mm and remove any wick debris, including any dust build up.
  • When the wax is 1cm from the base, stop burning and discard your candle.

Safety

  • Place your candle on a stable heat-resistant surface before burning.
  • Never burn your candle on or near anything that could catch fire. Keep away from draughts, curtains, water & moisture.
  • Always ensure wicks are upright and in the middle of the candle. Do not allow the wicks to float to the side as this could lead to the vessels overheating.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Ensure candle is completely extinguished before leaving the room.
  • Keep your candle out of reach of children and pets.
  • Do not burn your candle for longer than the recommended time frames.
  • Do not allow your candle to burn to the very base of the vessel. Cease burning when there is 10mm of solid wax left at the base of the candle.
  • Do not touch your burning candle or move it when the wax is liquid.
