Frequently asked questions

Do you have a question?

We’d be happy to answer it.

Below, we’ve listed the most frequently-asked questions from our customers. Is your question not on the list? Then please don’t hesitate to contact us.


 It’s very important to use our candles properly so that you can get the most out of them. For example, did you know that you should always place our rustic candles at least 10 centimetres from each other to prevent them from leaking? 

What do I need to bear in mind when I want to burn several candles alongside each other?

It is important to make sure there is a sufficiently large distance between the candles (at least 10 cm). Always burn the candles in a suitable holder or on a fire-resistant coaster.

Must I rotate the fragrance sticks every day in order to distribute the scent properly?

It is not necessary to rotate the sticks. The quality of the sticks in our reed diffusers is so good   that they distribute a lovely scent in your home for several weeks.

Must the label on the bottom of the rustic candle be removed before lighting the candle?

No, the so-called bottom label of the candle does not need to be removed.

Safety is a top priority for us. That is why all our candles display symbols that explain how to use the candle correctly. 

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.

Which are the most suitable candleholders/tea-warmer holders for burning candles and tea-warmers

It is very important that the holders are manufactured from non-flammable materials and that there is a sufficiently large distance (at least 10 cm) between the candles. For a tea-warmer holder, it is important that the heat generated by the burning tea-warmer can escape. The holder should therefore not be closed.

Our accessories have been carefully designed to allow our candles to burn optimally and to comply with all safety regulations. Our accessories are available in different types, shapes and materials. You can view them here

What is the best way to put out a candle?

 The best way to put out our candles is with a candle snuffer, which you should hold over the wick as far as the liquid wax. The wick then stops burning without an afterglow, it doesn’t break off and it is covered with new candle wax for the next time you light the candle. Never put out a candle with water.
