Candle Care

Make sure you follow these tips to ensure the longevity and performance of your Nouvelle Lune Candle - 



Your first burn of a wood wick candle is the most important. Ensure your candle burns for 1-2 hours and allow a full wax pool to develop to the edge of the glass. This will prevent tunneling and increase the performance of your burn.

If your wood wick does not light right away try again and continue until your wick ignites. Turning your candle on an angle to light the wick can assist in this process. Remove any soot or burnt wick from your candle before lighting.

Never leave your wood wick candle burn for more than 4 hours at a time. Ensure you trim your wick to 5mm before each use.This will assist with lighting your candle and will ensure the longevity and performance of your Nouvelle Lune wood wick candle.  



Follow the instructions for Wood Wick Candles. Adorn soy and Adorn crystal candles require removal of crystals, citrus segments and botanicals, including flowers on the first burn. Adorn candles with larger segments of dehydrated citrus require removal of citrus if you notice they are inhibiting a full wax pool from developing or if your wick is not lighting/burning appropriately. Ensure you remove with an item other than your hands to ensure you do not burn yourself.



Our moulded range of candles are decorative statement pieces which can also be lit if desired. Ensure you place your moulded candle on a heat resistant plate or dish before lighting to catch hot dripping wax. Before lighting your moulded candle trim your wick to 5mm.

Ensure your candle is placed on a heat resistant plate on a flat surface, away from children, pets or flammable objects, such as curtains and ensure you do not leave your moulded candle burning unattended.

Keep your candle in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight. Do not burn for more than 2 hours at a time and ensure you trim your wick to 5mm before each use. 

As moulded candles are not in a container their burn time is accelerated and they will burn much faster than our wood wick candles.
