Candle Care Guide

Our hand-poured soy wax candles provide many hours of clean-burning, strong-smelling fragrance that we want you to make the most of.

Your candle's first burn is always the most important as it sets the stage for how it performs. As wax retains memory, we recommend allowing it to melt to the edge of the jar. It may take up to 4 hours during the first burn.

Doing this helps avoid future tunnelling, a build-up of non-melted wax around the sides, often going to waste. It will also maximise scent throw as a candle releases fragrance through the melted wax.

To achieve a stable burn, trim your wick to approximately 5 mm between uses. We recommend using a wick trimming tool for best results, or you can pinch away the loose bits with your fingers.

Christmas in a candle!

Love love love this festive candle. Authentic orange and clove scent and lasts much longer than other well known brands. An all year round Christmas candle for me!

Second Purchase

I recently came across selfish in a shop and purchased their Merry Citrus candle along with one of their diffusers.

The candle has been burning beautifully on and off in my home for the past week, so I've just made a second purchase to treat a few friends this Christmas.

Christmas in a candle

Nostalgic scent without smelling 'cheap' as many x-mas candles can.
