Taking care of your candles and diffusers

I would like to share some tips to help you get the best performance from our candles and diffusers.

Getting the best out of your 100% beeswax candle.
Beeswax is a natural product that burns slowly. Let the candle burn for 3 to 4 hours to create a pool of wax that reaches the edge of the container. Trim the wick each time before you use the candle, wooden wicks should be about 3mm and cotton wicks should be around 5mm.

Try to keep your candle away from drafts, air conditioning or fans. These airflows will disturb the flame and disrupt the even burn of your candle.

Getting the best out of your reed diffuser.
Place the reeds that come with your reed diffuser into the bottle to absorb the diffuser oil. Let the fragrance oil absorb into the reeds, and naturally diffuse the scent into the room. The fragrance will continue to evaporate into the air around it, creating a constant ambiance.

Aside from flipping the reeds once every few weeks to ensure the reeds do not become over-saturated with fragrance and dust, you don’t need to do anything special to look after your diffuser.

If you want a quick burst of scent, flip the reeds over. When turning the reeds, take care to protect the surface the diffuser is on; using a paper towel to ensure no liquid is dripped onto the surface or floor. If you use your reed diffuser on wooden surfaces, we suggest placing them on a protective surface or a drinks coaster as essential oils and fragrances can leave marks.

If you like a subtler scent or are using your reed diffuser in a smaller room, you can use fewer reeds to diffuse the fragrance more slowly. You will receive 8 reeds, use all 8 reeds if you like a stronger fragrance, or between 5-7 reeds for a subtler aroma.

There are some factors which will affect the longevity of your diffuser, for example, if kept near a radiator or left in direct sunlight the fragrance may evaporate more quickly.
