Candle Safety, Bespoke & Refill Service
It is vital to me that you are kept safe whilst using my products. Candles are one of the biggest causes of domestic fires in the UK so great care MUST be taken.
My candles are hand made by me, all blends, temperatures & ingredients are recorded in my tech file. It is not possible to test every single candle as my vessels are unique, I have to work on like for like products to estimate performance for example, I know an ironstone teacup will behave in a similar way to another ironstone teacup of the same size. However, I do test the wax blend in every batch made and check the burn.
Do you love your candle vessel? I'll happily refill it for you when it has burnt out.
Just get in touch and we can talk fragrances, collection and delivery.
Candles make lovely Wedding favours, Hen or Stag gifts. Would you like to create your own signature blend for your event? Do you have a special vessel that you would like made into a candle? I'm happy to help.
Please follow the following guidelines when using your candles.
- Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
- Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
- Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
- Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning and dripping.
- Always use a candle-holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
- Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
- Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
- Always read and follow the manufacturer’s use and safety instructions carefully. Don’t burn a candle longer than the manufacturer recommends.
- Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting. Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.
- Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.
- Don’t burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains or ½ inch if in a container.
- Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
- Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
- Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. This helps ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts to cause improper burning.
- Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax splatters.
- Never extinguish candles with water. The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might cause a glass container to break.
- Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
- Never use a candle as a night light.
All candles are labelled with fragrance descriptors, they are either fragrance oils specifically designed for candle making or Organic Essential Oils. ALL SDS are available upon request.
Both, even though one is completely naturally derived, can contain sensitisers. Follow the guidance provided and if any irritation occurs extinguish the candle immediately and seek medical attention if necessary and then inform Harum Scarum - thank you.
