All of our scented candles are lovingly hand-poured in Dubai. To keep them looking and smelling their best, follow these simple steps.

  1. The first time you burn your Silsal candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, or until the whole top layer of wax has melted - this will help your candle burn more evenly in the future.
  2. Before each new burn, trim your wick to 4-6mm. This encourages an even, steady flame and limits sooting.
  3. Light your candle in a well-ventilated room, away from drafts, fans and air currents, which can cause rapid or uneven burning.
  4. Extinguish the flame using a snuffer, then centre and straighten the wick. Remove wick trimmings and matches, as any debris can act as a secondary wick, encouraging your candle to burn faster.
  5. Don’t touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
  6. Always stop burning your candle when there is approximately 10mm of wax left in the vessel.

Once your candle is finished, clean out the remaining wax and give your vessel a second life. First, place the candle in the freezer for a couple of hours. Once frozen, the wax will pop out. Gently scrape off any remaining wax and clean with warm soapy water.
