What is the safety information for Daisy Anai's candles


  • Always keep a burning candle within sight.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything flammable and away from any draughts of air.
  • Keep out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Trim candlewicks to 5mm each time before burning.
  • Allow the candle to melt right to the edge to avoid 'tunnelling'
  • Be sure the candle is placed on a level, heat-resistant surface.
  • Do not burn for any longer than 4 hours.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. Allow it to cool, trim the wick and relight.

How do I burn my candle?


  1. Be sure to light your candle in a well-ventilated room, away from drafts, or fans, which can cause sooting or rapid, uneven burning.
  2. Burn candle for one and a half to two hours at a time. Burning for less time can cause the candle to 'tunnel', which leaves a build-up of wax around the sides. Burning for longer periods (over four hours) can cause the wick to move, or slant.
  3. Make sure you stop burning your candle when 10mm of wax remains at the bottom, keeping an eye on a burning candle when the wax is low.




How do I care for the candle wick?


  1. Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and matches, as debris in the wax can act as a secondary wick, encouraging your candle to burn faster.
  2. After outing the flame with a snuffer, centre and straighten the wick. Burning for too long can cause the wick to move, or slant. If you see a flaming wick come close to the side of the candle wall, extinguish the flame and straighten the wick to prevent the glass from burning and potentially cracking.
  3. Long, or crooked wicks can create high flames, smoking, or sooting. Trimming the wick to 5mm (when the wax has set) is the easiest way to prevent this from happening.
