  1. Lime, Basil & Mandarin candle tin being lit
     
    Do you know that your candle has a memory?
     
    Yes - that's right! That is why it is so important to burn your candle correctly to ensure you get the best out of them.
     
    Having a candle lit for only a short amount of time will cause your candle to tunnel. This means that you will be left with lots of unused wax around your candle container as the wick will burn down the middle of the candle. Everytime you relight your candle, it will continue do this!
     
    You should be burning your candle until the wax nears the edge of the container (but for no more than 4 hours) so you have a full melt pool across your candle. Ensuring you do this means that the wax across the candle will be fully melted giving you the perfect burn and scent throw.
    So if you don't do this on your first burn, your candle will remember!

    Whilst reed diffusers are super easy to use and a no hassle way to scent your home, there are a couple of things you can do to make sure you get the best out of your reed diffuser.

    • Reed diffusers work well in warm conditions, however, if placed in direct sunlight this may affect how long the diffuser will last for as the liquid will evaporate.
    • Place your diffuser where there is movement of air, for example in a hallway, by the doorway in your room or in a small room.

    • Reed diffusers work by releasing fragrance into the air after the liquid is dispersed through the reeds. You may wish to flip the reeds every few weeks to improve the release of fragrance. Please wear gloves when touching the reeds and wash hands thoroughly.
