Getting the most out of your candle



The cute little twisty signature wicks on Ink & Morsels candles are designed to be trimmed before use. In ‘normal’ candle making, wicks are trimmed prior to being distributed to shops/customers. I like to think that curling the wick adds an element of decoration to a part that would otherwise just be thrown away immediately during the manufacturing process. It’s also a reminder to trim your wick prior to use - something that a lot of people forget to do despite it potentially adding hours to the candles burn time!

So... just to clarify, keep those wicks trimmed, people!


In order to get the best burn and the most time out of your candle, you want to make sure that you're not burning your candle in a draught, you're trimming your wick to 5mm and you're keeping the wax pool clear of matches and debris.


Candles actually have a memory - the first burn is the most important. If you let your burn pool expand to the edges of the surface on the first burn, you're more likely to reach every last bit of wax in the tin until the candle is burnt.

SO, PEOPLE: trim your wicks, widen your burn pool, and you’ll be experiencing candles like you’d never experienced them before!



High quality, parabens-free fragrance oils have been compared against other oils and selected by me personally. They do not contain any animal-derived ingredients, they are not tested on animals and thus they are vegan friendly. I'm proud to share that every fragrance oil I use in my candles is manufactured in the UK.

My fragrance oils are delivered and preserved in biodegradable, natural plastic bottles. I buy my flowers & petals from a UK wholesaler which arrive in one large recyclable plastic bag. My tins are aluminium and, again, are from a UK wholesaler. Any glitter I use is a biodegradable candle glitter made from vegetable starch - it is plastic free, cruelty free & plant based. In order to achieve my signature 'splat' around the wick of certain candles, I use eco-friendly, vegan friendly, cruelty free, non-toxic dyes. 


Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Keep away from things that can catch fire.

Keep away from children and pets.

Use in a suitable bowl, filled with water if necessary.

Keep wicks trimmed.

Keep burn pool clear of debris.

Use a heat resistant candleholder.
