Candle Care Instructions

At Hannah Heidi Candles, we take pride in creating candles that not only add a touch of elegance to your home but also serve as unique decorative pieces. We highly recommend utilising our candles for their aesthetic appeal. However, should you choose to burn the candle, we feel it is essential to provide some guidance to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

When burning our candles, we advise you to place them on a flat surface to maintain stability. Additionally, it is crucial to use a large heatproof dish beneath the candle to capture any melted wax. While our candles are crafted with care, melted wax can sometimes behave unpredictably, and it’s better to be prepared to prevent any accidental damage or mess. Even if you decide not to burn the candle, we still recommend utilising a dish as a protective measure since the wax may leave stains on furniture.

Please note that our candles are handcrafted, which adds to their charm and individuality. As a result, you may notice small air bubbles and slight variations in color, frosting, finish, and other minor imperfections. These unique characteristics are a typical part of working with natural soy wax and demonstrate the authenticity and craftsmanship of each candle. Each candle we create is distinct, ensuring that you have a one-of-a-kind piece that adds character to your space.

By following our suggestions for burning and caring for your candle, you can enjoy both the decorative and functional aspects of our product. We appreciate your understanding and hope that our candles bring warmth, ambiance, and beauty to your home.

We want you to enjoy your Hannah.Heidi Candles as much as we love handcrafting them for you.

Candle Safety Instructions

  • To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience with our candles, we kindly remind you to follow these important safety tips:

    1. Placement: Always place your candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface and keep it away from anything that could potentially catch fire. Avoid placing it near drafts, as they can affect the flame’s stability. Additionally, keep your candle away from water and moisture to prevent any hazardous situations.

    2. Attentiveness: Never leave a burning candle unattended. It’s crucial to be present in the room while the candle is lit and ensure that there is someone responsible to monitor it. Before leaving the room or going to sleep, make sure the candle is completely extinguished to prevent any accidents.

    3. Child and Pet Safety: Keep your candle out of reach of children and pets. Curious hands or playful paws can accidentally knock over a candle, leading to potential injuries or fires. To avoid any such incidents, place the candle in an elevated or secure location that is inaccessible to children and pets.

    4. Burning Time: For optimal performance and safety, avoid burning your candle for more than four hours at a time. Extended burning periods can cause the candle to overheat, leading to potential hazards. To maintain a controlled burn and prolong the life of your candle, it’s recommended to extinguish it after four hours and allow it to cool before relighting.

    5. Handling: Refrain from touching a burning candle or moving it when the wax is in a liquid state. The melted wax and the container itself can become extremely hot, posing a risk of burns or spills. To avoid accidents, wait until the wax solidifies and the container cools down before handling or relocating the candle.

    By adhering to these safety tips, you can enjoy the warm glow, inviting fragrance, and aesthetic charm of our candles while ensuring the well-being of yourself, your loved ones, and your surroundings.
