Candle Care + Tips

For the best results of your candle and to prevent fire and/or serious injury follow the recommendations below.
  
Safety
  • Always burn your candle within sight. 
  • Keep away from draughts and vibrations.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
Before Burning
  • We have trimmed your wick already to our recommended length but ensure your wick is approximately 3-4mm long.
  • Only burn your candle on a level, fire resistant surface.
While Burning
  • Burn your candle for 2-3 hours at a time and no more than 4 hours. This should leave an even pool of melted wax across the top and ensures an even burn every time.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first ensuring the candle has completely cooled down.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquified.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is approximately 1cm of wax left in the vessel.
  • If burning multiple candles, place each candle at least three inches apart from one another. This is to ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.
  • Use extra caution when burning candles during a power outage. Battery-powered lights like flashlights are much safer sources of light during a power failure.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
After Burning
  • Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is completely out and there is no glow coming from the wick ember.
  • Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
  • Be careful of hot wax when your candle is extinguished. Be mindful that your coconut shell can also get very hot.
Tips
  • When there is approximately 1cm left of wax in your coconut cup, scoop the wax out and gently remove the metal wick holder. Wash your coconut shell with warm soapy water.
  • Your coconut shell is now reusable for whatever you desire.
  • To avoid heat rings on your surfaces we recommend using a coaster underneath our candles. Our ceramic candles come with a lid which can be used as a coaster.
    Crystal Candle Care
    A lovingly placed crystal stone is embedded in every coconut crystal candle for you to remove and treasure as a wonderful keepsake. To maintain an equal burn, we recommend:
    • Removing the large crystal before burning your candle. The little crystals can be left as they will sink into the wax.
    • As the crystals travel around in the softened wax, each candle will burn differently. If the crystals are hindering an even candle burn, carefully remove them after the flame has been extinguished while the wax is still soft.
    • Any crystals you choose to leave in the candle will sink into the wax and can be removed and cleaned with soapy water once the candle is finished.
    Coconut Shell Tips
    Caring for your coconut shell cup is essential for durability but as these bowls are 100% natural we cannot determine this. 
    • We suggest using coconut oil after every 10-15 uses to restore its smooth surface while resealing its pores.
    • Our coconut shell cups are best used for room temperature or cold contents as anything too hot or boiling can cause cracks. 
    • Our coconut shell cups are not dishwasher safe and should not be used in microwaves, ovens or freezers.
    • Clean with warm soapy water.
