Candle Care & Safety

We recommend the following to get the best results from your Parkminster Products candle.

  • The first time you use your candle, light and allow to burn until the entire surface of wax has melted.
  • To maximise the total burn time, keep lit between two to four hours at a time. For our smaller 90ml candle you may only need to burn this for up to two hours.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris.
  • Trim wicks to 5mm (1/4") before you use your candle, this will prevent clogging and smoke.
  • In the event that your candle wick starts to smoke, extinguish your candle, allow the wax to cool and set, trim it, and then relight it – never trim a burning candle.

Take care with your candle:

  • Do not burn candles on or near anything that could catch fire.
  • The glass jars will get hot; never touch or move a burning candle, and ensure the surface it is on is heat resistant; never burn candles on a glass or marble surface.
  • Leave at least 15cm (6") between burning candles.
  • NEVER leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Always keep candles well away from children and pets.
