safety with candles

Many of our candles will stand freely on a level surface, such as glass. Owing to the fire risk posed by a naked flame, it is essential that you mount all candles firmly, to reduce any risk of falling over, in a stand or holder or on a surface which can heat up as the candle flame nears the base. However, you may also stand them in a container to catch them in a limited space if they do fall. Do not stand them on a surface which can burn or char, such as a table made from wood or synthetic material.

Do not burn candles in a draught or in a caravan or boat as the fire risk is increased substantially causing many avoidable deaths and much avoidable damage.

Children and pets pose a special danger as do those whose co-ordination may waver. It is best to use a candle-holder designed or selected for the purpose. Damp sand in a bowl is a creative alternative. Blu-tak under the candle can fix it to the support. As always, the base of a candle can be melted with a match flame before pushing it firmly into their holder. Keep them vertical!

Always extinguish a flame after use, then the glowing tip of the wick. Traditionally they are blown out (or a cone snuff is placed on the candle) then the tip is squished between finger and thumb or is trimmed gently with small scissors so as not to damage the brittle wick.

floating candles

Ideal for that touch of elegance to a romantic evening or dinner party. Gently place into the water without wetting the wick. Light after it floats properly. Do not attempt to light it, then place it on the water surface. Candles designed to float are always wider than they are high or “bottom heavy”. Do NOT attempt to float candles other than F1 and F2 or S8.

rolled sheet foundation

These candles are all rolled from sheets of beeswax around the selected wick. We use one sheet, two sheets and four sheets half as wide again, to give 3 weights. Keep these candles out of the sun as direct sunlight will bleach the colour. They are generally best mounted in holders with a central spike to lock them in position.
