FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What wax do we use?
In our candles we use a high grade rapeseed, Coconut and paraffin wax blend. This extends
burn time, allows an even burn and ensures a fantastic scent throw.
How are the candles prepared?
None of our products are made and placed in storage. As soon as your order is placed the
process of individually pouring and creating your product begins. We sometimes need extra
time, this is only due to the individually pouring process.
Where are the candles made?
Your candles are poured, diffusers filled in the UK.
What fragrance oils do we use?
We use top grade fragrance oils at Lint and Kemp. Our oils are vegan and follow the
guidelines for the UK in regards to health and safety regulations. Each candle contains a
different fragrance oil. Contents can be obtained from the bottom of your candles and
diffusers, but you can always drop us an email and we would be more than happy to send
over any information you require.
What is the burn time for my candle?
The regular sized candle will burn for around 40 hours. The compact candle will burn for
approximately 15-20 hours.
How long should I burn my candle for?
It's important to burn your candle until the top of the candle develops a wax pool from wall to wall (around two hours). It's recommended that you burn the candle for a max of four hours while always making sure you're aware of the candle at all times!

What's inside our diffusers?
We use fragrance oils and a diffuser base that is non-flammable, eco friendly and has a low
evaporation rate ensuring you get the most from your purchase.
What reeds do we use?
We use black fibre reeds only, measuring 30cm x 4mm. The use of fibre reeds ensures the
maximum scent throw. The choice to use black reeds makes sure your product is not only
finished to a high visual standard but also reduces any sign of staining caused by the oils
traveling up the reeds.
Where can I place my diffuser when it's opened?
What precautions should I take with my diffuser?
Always store your diffuser in a safe place away from pets and children. Keep it on a stable
surface. Although the base is not flammable the fragrance oils sometimes contain alcohol so
always ensure you keep it away from any flames, any heat and do not try and light your
diffuser in any way.
What happens if I spill or knock over my diffuser?
As quickly as possible make sure you clean up and spillages and wash your hands
immediately. The contents may damage any varnished surfaces and may cause damage to
soft furnishings also.
