How to get the best out of a candle:

  • Avoid draughts - they can cause a flame to be blown to one side, smoke and cause the candle to dribble.

  • It is a wise precaution to use a candleholder when burning a candle.

  • To avoid the wick being drowned on subsequent lighting, allow large diameter candles to burn for several hours before extinguishing.

  • On extinguishing a candle a snuffer will prevent the wick from smouldering and producing an unpleasant smell. If a snuffer is not available, gently blow the flame out and then extinguish the glowing tip with moistened thumb and finger.

  • Avoid placing a candle in a window that receives direct sunlight. Some of the colours fade and on hot days the candles can become sufficiently soft to sag.

NEVER LEAVE BURNING CANDLES UNATTENDED
