Candle Care & Safety

Candle Care

Zawadee candles are made using natural coconut, plant-based soy and rapeseed wax with the finest fragrance oils to give you the ultimate sensory experience. 

When lighting the candle for the first time, always let it burn until the wax has melted to the edge of the container, this will help prevent tunnelling. For optimal burn always trim wicks to 1/4 inch before lighting (we suggest using a wick trimmer).

The candle burn time depends on the airflow of the room. The air breeze in each room varies and is not always ideal for candles. If you notice an uneven burn or tunnelling, we recommend that you move the candle (never move a burning candle, always wait for the candle to cool down and ensure its put out & safe to move) to another room or rotate the candle 1/4 turn every time you light it. 

Candle Safety

We want you to enjoy your scented Zawadee candle safely. Please follow these safety guidelines to ensure you enjoy your Zawadee candle safely.

Never burn a candle for more than 4hrs at a time.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Never burn candles near anything flammable such as fabric clothing, books, curtains etc.

Never sleep with a candle still burning or leave a burning candle in a child’s room

Always place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is strong and has enough space to catch any melted wax.

Keep lit candles away from children, pets, drafts, ceiling fans and any air flows.

Extinguish all candles before going to sleep or if the flame gets too close to the candle holder/container and when you leave a room.

Don’t move your candle when they’re burning. Extinguish candles and let your candle container cool down before moving them.

Don’t let anything fall into the hot candle wax like match sticks

Never lean over a burning candle, to avoid having your hair / clothes catching the flame

If burning 2 candles at a time, leave at least 4 inches apart between both candles

For safety reasons, stop using the candle when 1/4 inch of wax remains in the container

Always use a snuffer or a spoon to put out your candle. This is safer than blowing the candle flame which can send sparks and hot wax flying.

Always double check your candle is completely out. A candle that has been put out can go on to ablaze and start a fire, so always make sure that your candle is completely out
