Candle Tips

It's a good idea to keep the wick trimmed every couple of hours for optimum burning, appearance, scent and lasting burning time. Our "up to xx hours burning time" are based on regular trimming. Extinguish the candle before trimming! For candles in tins, which form a completely melted pool, and candles in glasses, take care not to pull the wick away from the bottom.

Candle Safety

In September 2007, European Standards approved a set of safety symbols and / or standard warnings to be used on candles.
Below are the standard symbols, and the standard text for each symbol which may be on the label or accompanying leaflet.

Our candles carry the warnings which are now mandatory as symbols, and any useful or appropriate optional warning symbols.
