Frequently asked questions about our candle collection.
How to make candles?
Making candles can be a fun and rewarding activity. Firstly, select and choose a wax (soy, beeswax, coconut, for example). Then, pick the wick. Wicks come in various sizes, so choose one that fits the container or mold you're using.
Prepare and clean the container and secure the wick to the bottom of the container with an adhesive. To melt the wax either use a microwave or double boiler. Monitor the temperature with a thermometer – the ideal temperature depends on the type of wax.
Add fragrance to the melted wax, but remember that too much can affect the candle’s performance. After the wax is melted dip the metal end of the wick and place it into the wax and centre it into the container or mold. Make sure it’s hardened and secure.
Pour the wax into the container, leaving half an inch from the top. Trim the wick and leave for two days before burning.
Which candles burn the best?
Candles can vary massively, so when choosing a candle you should consider burn time, scent, and sustainability. Soy and coconut wax have a slow, clean burn and are an eco-friendly candle choice, but they can be expensive. Beeswax is also expensive and has a long burn time, but have a scent of honey. Paraffin wax candles are popular because they are more affordable than other options, but they are not sustainable and provide soot. You can also look at palm wax and gel candles.
Are diffusers better than candles?
Diffusers or candles are a personal preference. In terms of scents, diffusers are less subtle but last longer than candles. For ambiance, candles provide a warm and cosy environment, whilst diffusers often go unnoticed. Candles come in various sizes and styles but are usually functionally designed, so aesthetics is not at the forefront of the design process. Diffusers, however, have more decorative options.
How do you use candles in home decor?
Candles are a beautiful element for home decor, adding warmth and ambiance to a space. Candles can be used as statement centerpieces, included in seasonal displays, used as tableware decor, hallway decor, and indoor and outdoor candle lanterns.
How do you display candles at home?
Displaying candles at home can be a creative way to enhance your home decor. Use a candle holder or tray to create a sophisticated and organised aesthetic. Candles lanterns and chandeliers are a nice way to create hanging candles. Whereas, a sideboard can be used to create a seasonal display with candlesticks and floating candles.
