What's the best way to burn your candles?

Always allow the wax burn pool to reach the outer edges of the jars before extinguishing the flame. This will prevent the wax from "tunnelling" and allow your candle to burn evenly. We recommend burning your candle for 2-3 hours at a time but for never more than 4 hours. Never leave the candle unattended. After use, your amber glass jar can be recycled - in any way you like!


Can my amber glass jar be re-used?

Of course! When your Handmade candle has reached the end of its life, you can soak and wash out the remaining wax with hot soapy water. If any stubborn wax remains, place your candle in the freezer. Once the wax hardens, it can be chipped out along with the wick. Carefully empty the wax out and wipe clean. Re-using our amber jars could not be easier! They make great small planters for succulents or cacti and also make great mini storage solutions for pens, pencils and bathroom accessories - anything you like!
