How to look after your Pilgrims

To ensure you enjoy your candle experience and get the most out of it, we got some tips for you.

  • When burning your candle for the first time, burn it until the entire wax surface has melted 2-3 hours. This will create a candle memory, a clean and even burn and the scent can fully evolve.
  • Trim your cotton wick to 5 mm each time before lighting. Best to do this with a wick cutter when the wax is dry, ensuring an even and smoke free burn.
  • Never leave your candle burning longer than 4 hours at a time.
  • Wood wick thickness and grain can vary as it's a natural product, which will cause every candle to burn a little bit differently, but despite these variations, wood wicks provide a unique burning experience with their romantic glow and sound of crackling wood fire.
  • Some wood wicks need a bit more love and take a bit longer when lightning them for the first time. Additional Tip: Light the wick by holding the vessel on an angle. This will allow the flame to slowly reach across the wick.
  • Wood wicks only need a tiny trim. Just clean off the burnt wood from previous burn.

Some safety precautions to keep in mind

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended
  • Only burn the candle on a fire resistant, level surface.
  • Do not attempt to extinguish the candle with water.
  • Keep away from little hands, pets and flammable materials.
  • Do not use the wooden lid to extinguish the candle.
  • Do not move a burning candle and avoid touching it, as the glass gets hot.
