  • Can I customise my candle?
    Each candle comes with a range of fragrance options, to choose from!
  • Do I need to trim my candle wick?
    Yes. As the wax level drops, the wicks effectively become longer so we advise that you trim the wicks to 6mm and ensure they're upright prior to each new burn.
  • Why do you say to stop burning with 10mm of wax left above the wick?
    We ask that you stop burning your candle at the 10mm wax mark above the wick as lower than this there may not be enough wax left in the candle to absorb the heat of the flame, which can lead the glass to becoming very hot and/or cracking.
  • Can you make candles with multiple fragrances?
    Currently at the moment, each candle only has the option for one fragrance.
  • Why is there black residue on the inside of my candle?
    If the wick is not trimmed, black residue may develop on the inside of the glass of your candle. Before using and each time you re-light your candle, make sure the wick is always upright and trimmed to 6mm. A napkin or damp towel can be used to remove the black residue.
