Candle Care: We recommend you burn this candle for no longer than 3 hours at a time, or until the melt pool reaches the glass edge, to keep the wax from tunneling. Let the wax cool and trim the wick to 0.5cm before relighting. Always leave 0.5cm of unmolten wax at the base of the candle to prevent prolonged exposure of direct heat to the glass and surface below. The wooden lids are designed to be used as a base for the lit candle to help protect from sensitive surfaces, and as a snuffer to extinguish the flame. We recommend you wash and reuse the glass for tealights or storage, or sort and recycle after use.
