Care and Cleaning: Lights and Blooms

When it comes to keeping your favorite pieces for as long as possible, intentional care is key. Here are a few tips on how you can maximize care so you can minimize waste!

LIGHTS (Hand poured Soy Candles)

(1) Your first burn will dictate your candle's lifespan.


To maximize your soy candle's life and to enjoy it in its fullest potential, ensure that you allow the candle to melt all the way to the sides to prevent tunnelling. We also recommend your first burn to last anywhere between 1-2 hours to really bring out the scent of the oils.

(2) Do not burn your candle for more than two (2) to four (4) hours at a time.
... and never burn them unattended!

(3) Your soy candles may have some imperfections— don't panic. This is natural and you're all good!
All our candles are hand poured and made of 100% pure soy wax— no artificial colors or ingredients. If you spot any imperfections, i.e. candle sweating, wet spots, and rough top, these are no reason for panic as these are the natural reaction of pure soy wax to our weather. They are normal and will not affect the quality of the burn or scent throw. 

(4) Use its vegan leather coaster so you can keep your candle safe and marked with a place of its own.
Leather coasters prevent the candle jar from slipping and sliding most especially when lit. However, avoid use when only 1/4 of the wax is left to avoid heat from directly coming into contact with leather. 

(5) Know when to stop the burn.
We discourage continued use of the candle when only 1/4 of the wax is left. Too much (prolonged) heat might not be good for the glass jar and the surface area on which it is placed on.

(6) Store properly.
Always keep them in a cool and dry place when not in use.

BLOOMS (Curated Desk Arrangements)

With proper care, your blooms can last anywhere from two to four years.

(1) Handle the blooms with utmost care as they are delicate in nature.

(2) Cotton flowers shed naturally over time. To preserve it for longer, avoid  getting them in contact with other abrasive objects. Should it accidentally touch another object and result to shedding, you may gently pinch them back to place or carefully snip off loose cotton— do not pull.

(3) Always keep your blooms upright inside their vase or ceramic pot.

(4) Avoid placing them under direct sunlight, strong winds or air pressure, and humid areas.

(5) Dried and preserved blooms do not need any upkeep— no need to add water!

(6) To keep them clean, use a small brush with soft bristles or use the lowest cool setting of a hairdryer.
