At Oswald & Grey, we believe that caring for your candles is crucial for an exceptional candle experience. By following these essential candle care instructions, you can maximise the performance, longevity, and safety of your O&G candle, ensuring you enjoy every moment of their luxurious ambiance.

Tips for Candle Care

  1. Trim the Wick: Before each use, ensure the wick is trimmed to approximately ¼ inch. This simple step prevents excessive smoke and ensures a clean, steady flame, allowing you to indulge in a pure and enchanting scent.

  2. Burn Time: Allow your candle to burn for at least one hour during each use. This promotes an even wax pool, prevents tunneling, and releases the captivating fragrance in its entirety, transforming your space into a haven of tranquility.

  3. Avoid Drafts: Find the perfect spot for your candle, away from drafts and breezy areas. Shielding your candle from drafts not only ensures an even burn but also helps maintain its aesthetic appeal, allowing you to bask in the gentle glow undisturbed.

  4. Burn on a Heat-Resistant Surface: Prioritize safety by placing your candle on a stable and heat-resistant surface. This safeguard prevents any accidental mishaps and preserves the beauty of your cherished decor.

  5. Extinguish Gracefully: Embrace the elegance of candle care by using a candle snuffer or gently blowing out the flame to extinguish your candle. This delicate act avoids any wax splatter and upholds the refined ambiance of your surroundings.

  6. Proper Storage: When your candle is not in use, preserve its allure by storing it in a cool, dry place, shielded from direct sunlight. This protects its integrity, ensuring each lighting moment is as enchanting as the first.
