bon lux candles are 100% hand-made & can sometimes show small imperfections. we use the finest quality 100% soy wax, so sometimes the new candle surface may appear uneven in colour/texture - this is proof of the soy wax quality, and will even out with initial long burn. Also, note that as candle burns down it is normal for some wax to stick to glass sides.

Candle care

  • each votive comes with a letterpress coaster packed under the candle, use this to keep unlit candles dust free, and during burning as a tabletop saver.

  • when you first burn the candle, allow it to burn long enough for wax to pool, as this allows for the scent to throw beautifully and encourages candle to burn nicely.

  • trim the candle wick each time you burn-6mm is the best length.

  • if you burn candle in draughty room it can cause the candle burn unevenly.

  • don't leave burning candles unattended, or near kids or animals!

  • place candle on a heat proof surface, and away from curtains and soft furnishings.

  • spilled soy wax is easily cleaned up! just wipe with soapy cloth.

Reuse & recycle

bon lux have taken care to design beautiful packaging which can be re-used and recycled. use the kraft box for another gift, recycle the wrap, and the jar is great for pencils or flowers. once candle is burned down to its lowest, remove wick and rinse votive glass out with warm soapy water or pop in dishwasher to remove wax!
