Tips & Safety

What do the symbols on our candles mean?

All our candles display symbols to show you how to burn the candles safely. That way, you can get the most out of our candles.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Do not move a burning candle.

Place candles at a distance of 10 cm from eachother. Candles which are placed too close together can use eachothers’ heat which might cause dripping.

The wick should not be longer than 1 cm. If the wick is longer it may smoke and flicker. If necessary, cut the wick before lighting the candle.

Do not place a burnt match or other materials in the candle-grease. It may case a second flame which results in the candle burning not the correct way.
