Candle Care

Designed to fill your home with delicious fragrance for hours, all of our scented candles have been lovingly hand made for you in the Scottish Borders. To keep your candles working at their best, practice safe candle care by following our guide below and ensure a quality scent experience with every burn.


1: Remove candle from packaging before lighting, retain the box for future reference.

2: Burn your candle indoors away from drafts and do not move when lit.

3: During the first burn allow the candle to burn long enough to melt to the edge of the glass, creating a melt pool. This prevents tunnelling.

4: Do not exceed burn time of 4 hours for 20cl and 30cl jars. For 9cl votive do not exceed 2 hours.

5: Extinguish with care as wax may splatter.


1: Ensure candle wick is trimmed to 5mm before burning.

2: Always remove trimmings and debris before lighting. Do not leave a candle burning unattended or near children or pets.

3: Do not place a candle on or near other heat sources, and never directly on furniture.

4: If smoking occurs when using the candle, extinguish and allow the wax to cool. Trim the wick to 5mm before relighting.

5: Discontinue use and extinguish candle when 1cm of wax remains.

Know Your Burn Time

All of our candles burn for a different amount of time depending on their size. Details of estimated burn times can be found on each page for our candles. Make sure to follow our care guide too to ensure you are getting the most out of your candle.
