Richmond Bridge Bath & Giftware CANDLE CARE AND INFORMATION
OUR CANDLES We use 100% natural coconut wax and 100% natural soy wax for all our container candles. Our pillar candles are a blend of natural soy wax and pillar wax. Our wicks are natural cotton. We use recyclable containers for our candles.
CANDLE SCENT We use the recommended amount of fragrance and essential oils for our candles. There is a maximum amount of fragrance that can be added to candles if excessive amounts are used this causes candles to burn improperly or unsafely and does not give a clean burn. We only use candle safe fragrances.
WICK CARE Trim the wick, we use 100% cotton wicks in our candles. Cotton wicked candles always need wick to be trimmed to 6mm before each lighting. If wicks are not trimmed you may notice some smoke as they burn. Wood wicks require wick to be 0.5cm above wax before its first lighting, they do not require any further trimming.
BURN TIME Candles should only be burned for 3 hours at a time, allow to cool and relight. We recommend all container candles be burned long enough at each lighting so entire wax surface has melted, (this time varies according to size of your candle) ensuring an even melt every time you use your candle. This allows all wax to be melted in the container otherwise a tunnel effect can occur creating wasted wax that isn’t melted.
SAFETY Burn candles in a draught free area, away from other heat sources, and away from anything flammable. NEVER leave a candle burning unattended. Always blow out a candle gently, do not use cold water to extinguish as this can cause glass to crack
CANDLE STORAGE Candles should be stored out of direct light and in a cool dry place, thus preventing fading, cracking or melting.
WAX POOL FIRE In the rare event of a wax pool fire do not use water to extinguish fire, water will cause candle to explode (glass will crack due to sudden change as water turns to steam with contact with hot wax)
