Candle Care

Taking care of your candle ensures your candle can burn longer, cleaner and sharper. Malante & Co. recommends the below tips for safely prolonging the life and quality of your candle. 


The First Burn 

The first time you burn your candle, allow it to burn for at least three hours or until the entire surface has melted. This will help your candle burn more evenly next time and avoid your candle tunnelling.

Wick Trimming

To ensure an even and smoke-free burn, the wick should be trimmed to a length of 1/4” or 5mm each time before lighting. It is important to use the appropriate tools such as a wick trimmer or scissors to trim your wick. Never break or trim a wick by using your fingers as by doing so you could cut your wick too short and affect the burning quality.

Wax and Perfume

Malante & Co. uses a refined proprietary soy blend wax. The perfume found in each of our candles is constructed with a blend of fragrance, essential and extract oils. To preserve the perfume its is recommended that you do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.


Never leave a burning candle unattended. Never move a burning candle. Ensure wax is solid before moving. Always burn within sight. Keep away from children, pets and things that catch fire. Burn candle on an appropriate flat heat resistant surface and avoid using in draft areas. Discontinue use when 10mm of wax remains.
