Using our products

The correct use of our candles is of great importance to enjoy them to the fullest. For example, did you know that you should always place our rustic candles at least 10 cm apart to prevent leaks?

It is important to make sure there is a sufficiently large distance between the candles (at least 10 cm).

Always burn the candles in a suitable holder or on a heat-resistant coaster.

No, the label on the bottom of the candle does not need to be removed before using the candle.

It is not necessary to rotate the sticks. The quality of the sticks in our reed diffusers is so good that they distribute a lovely scent in your home for several weeks.

Candles burn less well when there is a draught. An air current can also arise where many people walk back and forth. When a candle burns in a draught, it may develop an unstable flame. In these cases we recommend not to use table candles, but to use our refills, for example.

Safety is a top priority for us. That is why all of our candles display symbols that explain how to use them correctly.

It is very important that the holders are manufactured from non-flammable materials and that there is a sufficiently large distance (at least 10 cm) between the candles. For a tealight holder, it is important that the heat generated by the burning tea-warmer can escape. The holder should therefore not be closed.

Our accessories have been carefully designed to allow our candles to burn optimally and to comply with all safety regulations. Our accessories are available in different types, shapes and materials. You can view them here.

The best way to put out our candles is with a candle snuffer, which you should hold over the wick as far as the liquid wax. The wick then stops burning without an afterglow, it doesn’t break off, and it is covered with new candle wax for the next time you light the candle.

Never put out a candle with water!

All our candles display symbols to show you how to burn the candles safely. That way, you can get the most out of our candles.
