Candle Care

Here at Irelands Florist, we want you to get the most out of your stunning Glasshouse Fragrances and Circa Candles. We’ve put together some important tips and tricks to care for your candles the Irelands way!

CANDLE BURN TIMES

 

CANDLE CARE & WICK TRIMMING

  • Place candle in a non-drafty area.
  • Before burning, ensuring wick are straight and upright. 
  • Trim wick to 7mm before every burn, including the first burn, this will ensure the correct flame height which will avoid any smoking, soot on the jar or black ash in the wax pool.   

WAX PULL-AWAY

Due to changes of temperature the candle wax may expand and contract against the glass causing "pull away". It is a natural part of the life of the candle. 
 

ADVANTAGES OF GLASSHOUSE FRAGRANCES' WICK TRIMMER

  1. Angled to descend perfectly into the jar, even when candle is burned down. 
  2. Rounded base plate to catch trimmed wicks to avoid them falling into your wax.
  3. Base is exactly 7mm high, so you easily get the perfect wick every time.
