Candle Care

Tips on taking care of your candle:

1. Trim the wick

To ensure an even and smoke-free burn, the wick should be trimmed to a length of 5mm before each burn. The best time to do this is when the candle wax is completely cool.

2. Create a melt pool

Allow your candle to burn until a pool of wax forms on the candle surface. Wax has a memory and if you extinguish too soon, this may result in "tunnelling". In order to get the most from your candle and maximise scent throw, it is ideal for the entire surface of the candle to liquefy before extinguishing.

3. The 4-hour rule

Never exceed a 4-hour burning time in any burn subsequent to the initial burn. This will help to preserve the fragrance of your candle and prevent unsightly debris and soot from dirtying the wax. Allow your candle to rest for a minimum of 2 hours before lighting again.

4. Never blow out your candle

Blowing out your candle generates a lot of smoke and debris. This mixes with the liquid wax. When the wax is melted, gently turn the wick into the liquid wax to extinguish. After extinguishing, re-centre the wick so that the candle burns evenly.

The Mwanga ritual candle is inspired by Rwanda’s ‘Agaseke’ baskets. Traditional baskets are made to store food or gifts that are given as offerings when visiting someone or attending a wedding. These baskets are a symbol of peace and goodwill amongst family and friends

Rwanda’s ‘Agaseke’ baskets

The lid of the Mwanga Ritual candle is handwoven in Rwanda, the ceramic vessel is handmade by ceramicist Mervyn Gers, based in South Africa and we partnered with woman-owned Cape Island candles for the scent and candle fills.

This extra special vessel can also be used as a beautiful object to store things in it.
