    WOOD WICKS

    When compared with other wicks, wood wicks are the better option for scenting your home because they diffuse heat more rapidly into wax, which can lead to 35% more fragrance being released into the air.

    Wood wick candles are perfectly safe to use. Compared to cotton wicks which produce a tall flame at the tip of the wick, wood wicks typically burn lower and smolder over a longer period of time.

    WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO LIGHT A WOOD WICK CANDLE?

    Simply light the edge and watch the flame crawl across the rest of the wick.

    Your wick will have had it's first trim before shipping so will be ready to light. To avoid black smoke and for safety, always trim your wick to about 1cm before each burn.

    HOW LONG CAN I BURN MY CANDLE FOR?

    Read the British Candle Association safety advice.

    We recommend you burn your candle for at least two hours on the first burn to ensure you have a full melt pool (melted wax to the edges). This avoids tunnelling and will make your candle last longer.

    We do not recommend burning your candle for more than four hours at a time.

    Do not burn your candle all the way to the bottom as the glass can become too hot, causing it to break or shatter and possibly causing a fire as well as other damage.

    All orders are processed within one business day (excluding weekends and holidays) after receiving your order confirmation email. You will receive another notification when your order has shipped.

    Incredible even in its unlit state

    Arrived promptly and well packaged. Elegant design and the scent from the unlit candle is addictively intoxicating. The room for which this candle is destined is in the process of being decorated but I am certain that it will be a regular order.

    Nice

    Does what it says on the label. And the fragrance remains (if this is what you want, it does persist). It's exactly what I wanted, and wasn't;t disappointed, it's vegan and cheaper than similar products, so a big win all around (including the bees!)
