Candle Care

Please read the below safety instructions before using your BRNT candle. All candle brands vary so it's important to familiarise yourself with how to care for your candles properly.

 

  • Trim the candlewick down to 1/2 cm each time before burning. This will avoid uneven burning, excessive flickering, sooting and any wick mushroom from falling into the wax.
  • Always keep a burning candle within sight, make sure it is fully extinguished before leaving it unattended.
  • Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets.
  • Ensure your candle is placed on a stable and heat-resistant safe surface.
  • Keep the wax pool clear of all wick trimmings and debris.
  • Keep well away from flammable items.
  • Ensure the candle is burnt for a minimum of 2 hours for the first burn, this will ensure an even wax pool forms and prevent tunnelling.
  • Only keep a candle burning for 4 hours max, the longer the candle burns for - the hotter the wax becomes and the faster your candle will burn.
  • Keep burning candles away from draughts or air flows.
  • Do not burn the candle right to the bottom, extinguish at around 1 - 2cm.
  • If a candle is smoking or flickering, extinguish it, let it cool then trim the wick and relight.
  • Never extinguish a burning candle with water.
