Trim your Wick

Use our handy Wick Trimmer to keep your wick neat and tidy. Trim your wick to 3mm before each burn.

Use an Illuma-Lid

Your candle’s best friend! They look beautiful and help steady the flame for a clean, even burn. Choose your favourite design and use with our Medium and Large Jar Candles.

Allow to Pool

Let the top layer of wax liquefy and pool to the edges to avoid tunnelling. Wonder how long this should take? We recommend, that for every 1cm in diameter, you burn for 30 minutes – so a Large Jar Candle would be 4 hours.
TipsForCandles shade tray

Protect your surfaces

Use our decorative Candle Shades and Trays to prevent heat damage to your surfaces and encourage an even burn. Use with our Medium and Large Jar Candles.
