You've just purchased a stunning boutique candle from the ASH&STONE Candle Collection. Your candle is NZ made, hand-poured and created with love. As your candle has a naked flame, we've provided guidelines for usage and safety. Please have a read through before use.
Trim the candle wick to 6mm in length
You can use a wick trimmer, nail clippers, or scissors to do this. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring
Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times
Place your candle jar on a heat resistant stable surface before lighting.
Burn your candle in a well-ventilated room
Never leave candle unattended
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from anything flammable
Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets, and positioned where they can’t be accidentally knocked over
If you're burning more than one candle, ensure they're at least 10cm apart. This ensures they don’t melt one another or create a burn draft
Never touch or move a candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquefied.
Burning technique and safety
As our candles are made from soy, burning for an hour will ensure the wax pool reaches out to the edge of the candle jar. This will minimise the chance of wax 'tunnelling'
Burn your candle for no more than three hours at a time
Allow to cool for up to two hours after use
Discard your candle when the wax level is at 1cm or less. We do not recommend using your candle with wax at this level
Extinguish your candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly
Let the candle cool for two hours, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting
Never use a candle as a night light or if you may fall asleep.
Extinguishing your candle
To extinguish, use a candle snuffer or blow out very gently
Never use water or a candle dust cover to extinguish
Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room
Don’t touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
