Candle Care Tips You Need To Know

Who doesn’t love candles? You can never have too many, right? To make sure you’re getting the most out of your collection of candles at home, Circa Home have helped us put together a guide to candle care:

Circa Home‘s Tips:


Keep wicks trimmed to 7mm, this will prevent soot from forming on the glass vessel. If the glass does get sooty, wipe clean with a dry paper towel when the candle is extinguished.


Burning times can affect the longevity of your candle. Don’t burn any 260g candles for less than 1 hour or more than 4 hours at a time. Don’t burn 165g and 60g candles for less than 30 minutes or more than 2 hours at a time.


Don’t use the vessel lid to extinguish your candle. Always use a candle snuffer to properly extinguish candles, or blow gently and steadily directly onto the flame.


To ensure even burning, always light all wicks in candles with multiple wicks.


Stop burning a candle when 13mm of unmelted wax remains at the bottom of the vessel, and always place candles on a heat-proof surface.

Safety checklist:

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Ensure candles are out of reach of children, pets & flammable materials.

Never move a burning candle, the glass vessels can become hot. The flame of the candle should never come in contact with the side of the glass vessel.

Avoid placing candles in drafty areas, near open windows, air ducts or fans.

Never introduce liquids or foreign objects into candle and keep it free of wick trimmings, matches and any flammable materials.
