Before you light your candle...

  • Remove all packaging.

  • Do not attempt to use if the glass is crackeor damaged.

  • Do not burn on or near anything that could catch fire.

  • Always place on a heat protected, level surface away from draught, heat sources and flammable materials.

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Whilst your candle is burning...

  • We recommend that you NEVER exceed three
    hours of burning once the whole surface is liquid.

  • NEVER burn the last 1cm (1/2 inch) of wax to avoid
    flames burning against the glass.

  • A flame burning against the glass may cause
    the glass to break.

When you extinguish your candle...

  • Wait until the whole surface becomes liquid before extinguishing your candle.

  • Always extinguish your candle with a candle snuffer.

  • When the candle is fully cold - always trim the wick

    to approximately 1cm before lighting next time.

Always remember - Never leave your burning candle unattended.
