Our candles are made from vegan soy and soy blend waxes, complemented with lead-free wicks made to deliver optimum performance from tunnelling. It is important to practice safe burning to ensure you enjoy your MP candles.

First Use / Memory Setting
During the first use of your candle, allow the wax pool to completely fill the jar diameter. This is called memory setting and typically takes 3-4 hours depending on the size of the vessel. This step will also prevent tunnelling in your wax.

Wick Trimming
Always trim your wick before each use, a short wick gives a cleaner flame and an even burn. Whilst a long wick can cause smoking. Your wick should be no longer than 5mm at all times. A trimmed wick creates a steady calm flame, which means the candle's burning process is in balance.

Draughts
Candles burn best in still air with no active movements. Too much activity will disturb the flame and may cause the candle to start flickering and smoking. To avoid this, always burn your candle in a well-ventilated room away from drafts. Should draughts are unavoidable, place the candle in a candle holder to protect it from movements and turn the candle periodically to avoid uneven burning.

Burn Time
To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time, no more than 1 hour during the last remaining wax in the vessel. Always allow the wax to solidify before igniting.

Extinguishing
While blowing out the flame is effective, it is best to use a candle snuffer to reduce the smoke and soot as well as disrupting the candle fragrance during burning. See the MP Candle Snuffer for properly extinguishing your candle.

Safe Practices
-Never leave candle unattended
-When in use, keep away from children, pets and curtains
-Always protect the table or surface on which the candle rests. See the MP Leather Coaster for a non-slip base while protecting your table surface.
