Scents with Benefits

Our scents with benefits range are all lovingly hand poured in our kitchen at home in Manchester, set to provide you with hours of soothing senses. To ensure you get the most out of your candle, use our tips below.

 

Burning your candle in the best way

1. Make sure to light your candle away from drafts, as this can can cause sooting or uneven burning.
 

2. To prevent tunnelling, burn your candles for around 2 hours. Tunnelling results in a build up of wax around the sides and will reduce burn time.
 

3. Ensure you stop burning your candle when there is only 10mm of wax remaining at the bottom.

Wooden wick

For our wooden wick candles, it is unlikely you would need to trim the wick. The wooden wick is slightly more temperamental than your typical candle; it can take longer to light and may sometimes extinguish if the wick is too long/short or, in the event your candle tunnels it would struggle to stay lit as fresh oxygen would not flow in. However, it burns much slower and gives off a much stronger, lovely scent.

 

Plant me

Once your candle has come to the end of its first life, it is time to give its second burst. Simply clean the candle of the remaining wax and and follow the steps below:

  • Fill your jar 2/3 full with good potting soil. You want the pot to be firmly full, but not packed. The paper can be planted indoors or outside.
  • Take your seeded paper and cover the soil. Spread a 1/8 inch layer of soil over the paper pieces and tamp down gently on top.
  • Now give it a good soak. You want the paper and the soil to be nicely damp but not drowning. During the first 10 days, keep the paper moist at all times. This is key for germination. 
  • Once sprouts begin to appear, continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once sturdy wildflowers appear, water as needed.
