Caerlaverock Candles Scented Wax Melts



The first burn is the most important.  Wax has a sort of memory that sets up all subsequent burns from the first one.

Make sure you trim your wooden wick to about 3-4mm before lighting and make sure your first burn is for 4 hours.  A wick trimmer is the easiest way to do this but if you don’t have them try using nail clippers.

Place your candle on a heat resistant surface, away from draughts, flammable objects, children and pets.

Light and enjoy your crackling woodwick candle!

All done? Use a candle snuffer to extinguish your flame, do not blow out as you may blow wax over the wick affecting the next burn.

Ready for your second burn?  Make sure you trim away all the blackened wick and remove all debris from the candle before lighting to prevent any fire risks or flaring.

It’s not always easy to remember but please never leave your candle burning for more than 4 hours.

When the wax level is at the top of the metal wick holder your candle is finished.  Burning any lower will result in smoking and burn the wax.

You can scoop the remaining wax out and use it in a wax melter to make sure you get every bit of scent from your candle.



Place a wax melter on a stable and heat resistant surface.  Make sure it’s away from drafts, anything flammable and away from children and pets.

Place a melt in the top of your melter- do not add water.  Remember to fold over your packaging to keep your melts full of fragrance.

Light a 4 hour tea light candle  and place in the melter.

Don’t forget to extinguish the tea light if you leave the room – never leave it unattended or within reach of children or pets.

Re-use your wax melt melts until no more fragrance is released.

You can also use your soy wax melts without melting them by using them as natural air fresheners – place one on a small piece of baking paper or aluminium foil inside your cupboards or drawers.


reed diffusers

Remove the cork from your diffuser bottle and place the reeds into the oil.  Once they have absorbed some of the oil, flip them to begin the release of the beautiful fragrance into your home.

Place your diffuser on a coaster or protective surface in a high traffic area that will help transport the scent.

Avoid placing it near doors that lead outside as scent will be lost.  Be careful not to place too close to a heat source as that will evaoparate the scent faster.

Flip the reeds every week to keep the scent fresh and fragrant.  Please remember that the more you flip, the quicker the oil will evaporate.

We have tested our products using all the reeds you receive with your diffuser.  If you want to lessen the fragrance, remove a reed or two.

Every time you use a new scent, use new reeds.

Our 100ml of diffuser should last between three and four months, however, it’s lifespan can be affected by things such as central heating, air conditioning, open and closed doors and dehumidifiers.
