About CHC candles

Each candle at Candle House Ceylon is made using locally sourced ingredients such as premium paraffin wax and 100% cotton core wicks. Only fine fragrance oils and essential oils are used to scent our candles, making sure that each step is tested and is the right combination to ensure a great experience.

All our glass vessels can be re-purposed after the use of the candle. Visit our page on How to Re-Use Our Jars to learn more.


How to use our candles

  • Trim your candle wick to 1/4" before lighting each candle or once your candle has cooled.
  • Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings inside your candle vessel.
  • Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the glass during each burn to prevent tunneling, lighting them only for 4 hours at a time.


Safety first!

  • Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.
  • Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Do not allow your wick to curl over, as this can create a larger than normal flame.
  • Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.
  • Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.
  • Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.


Candle Storage

  • Candles are sensitive to temperature and light.
  • Avoid candles from fading, cracking or melting by storing them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and dust. 
  • Store them in an upright position.
