Care, Terms & Shipping

[hero title="Terms + Conditions" subtitle="

To maximise the burn time of our candles please burn them between 1-2 hours at a time, or the time in which the entire top surface has liquified before blowing out the flame. We choose to use slightly larger wicks so your candle burns down as evenly as possible, if your wick gets too long, the flame may get too large and may smoke, so please keep your wicks trimmed to 10mm and burning in the centre away from the glass. If necessary trim and adjust wicks when your candle is blown out and cool. 


During the burning of your candle, the glass may get hot, so please be careful. Please never handle your burning candle and do not leave your candle burning unattended. Never burn your candle on, or beside anything flammable. Please do not burn your candle in breezy areas, where the candle may get knocked, or close to surfaces where a carbon build up may occur as a result from smoke due to the combustion - a small amount of smoke is to be expected. Please burn your candle away from children or pets.
