Candle Styles

  • Remove all packaging before you light the candle.
  • Trim the wick to 3mm (1/8″) before lighting, and keep trimmed at all times while burning.
  • Always use an appropriate holder placed on a protected, heat-resistant surface.
  • Keep wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches or any foreign matter – this is combustible material and may cause a fire hazard.
  • Burn candles indoors, away from drafts, other heat sources, and any flammable objects or materials.
  • If smoking occurs, safely extinguish the candle with a Candle Snuffer, trim wick, remove trimmings and relight.
  • Keep burning candles within sight at all times and away from children
  • Do not move candles while they are lit.

Reed Diffusers

  • Reed Diffusers contain a liquid which can stain fabrics if spilt onto them and do not consume and ensure they are out of reach of children
