  Caring for your Candles 

Go ahead and escape through scent with a Scentscapology candle and inspire your mood - but do it safely please.

 

Always ensure that your candle is placed on an even, fire-resistant surface, in a well ventilated area and away from draughts, pets and children, before lighting.

 

Always keep a lit candle in sight and never leave unattended or try to carry it when lit, as it can get incredibly hot.

 

When you light your Scentscapology candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar, rather than pool in the middle. This will ensure an even burn going forward. Ideally leave your candle initially lighted for up between 2- 4  hours to adhere to this logic.

 

Do not burn your candle for longer than a maximum of 4 hours at any one time, this stops the candle jar heating the wax and causing it to burn away faster than it should.

 

When you have finished burning your candle and the wax has cooled, straighten the wick and trim if it is longer than 5mm and replace the lid. This will preserve the scent AND stop your candle and wick from gathering dust and flammable particles.

 

Every time you light your candle, always check for dust on both the wick and candle (best remember to put that lid on!) and ensure that you trim the wick to 5mm between burns. 

 

Why?  Dust and long wicks create higher flames and sooting and can sometimes create a ‘secondary wick’ which can make your candle burn faster than desired.

 

When your candle has burnt down to 10mm, you need to stop burning it.  

 

Tip: After use, upcycle your Scentscapology candle jar  - it could be a vase, a pen pot or a treat pot...

  Caring for your Natural Reed Diffusers 

How to use your natural reed diffuser...

 

Simply unscrew the bottle cap and insert the reeds into the amber glass bottle.

 

Place the bottle somewhere safe, i.e., on an even surface in the room you wish to scent.

 

Allow the reeds to soak up the fragrance for a day or so before turning them.

 

Turn the reeds whenever you feel like boosting the scent.

 

The more you turn them, the stronger the scent.

 

Do NOT place on polished or painted surfaces and mop up any spillages asap and keep out of reach from children and pets!

  Caring for your Wax Melt Snap Bars  

Simply break off the amount of wax you wish to burn and place it in your burner.

 

Each cube of a Scentscapology soy wax snap bar will give you approximately 12 - 15 hours of scent.

 

We recommend burning just one or two at a time. Wipe your burner clean once the wax has evaporated and hand wash. Never pour wax down the sink. 

 

Always ensure that this burner is placed on an even, fire-resistant surface, in a well ventilated area and away from draughts, pets and children.

 

Melted wax can be very hot, do take care not to spill and never move the burner whilst it is burning wax and never leave your chosen melter unattended.
