Candle Care

Tips to get the most out of your Aroma Lab candles

There are a few things you can do to ensure that your candle has the love and care needed, to allow it to burn beautifully. We have given you a few pointers below to get the most out of your candles...

Before burning...

Make sure that you place your candle on a heat-resistant surface, away from any windows or draughts, walls, children and pets.

On the first burn

All of our candles are made using soy wax and this type of wax has a memory. To ensure that it burns evenly, when lighting it for the first time, burn for around 4 hours, or until the wax has melted to the edge. We recommend to burn our candles for a maximum of 4 hours each time.

Trim your wick

Always trim the wick to around 5mm before every burn. This will mean that the candle will not burn too quickly, reducing soot and allowing your candle to burn beautifully.

When you're done...

If possible, use a snuffer or a wick dipper to extinguish your candle. Blowing the flame out can cause soot and can often cause some of the burnt wick to drop into the wax.

With these tips, we hope that you can get the best out of your Aroma Lab candle and can enjoy every hour of burning, filling your home with our stunning fragrances.
