How do I care for my Born of Botanics Candles?

How do I store my candle ?
Unfortunately candles made from natural wax sources and fragrances are known to deteriorate gradually after a period between 6 months to a year, this is due to them lacking the excess of preservatives and additives that can be found within other candles (such as those with paraffin wax). Unlike food, candles don't have a hard-set expiration date but they will certainly degrade over a period. This can also be affected by conditions such as climate and storage practices. Once this process of deterioration has began it may cause the wick to become clogged and the candle difficult to light, or burn as it was intended. Find a cool, dark place to store your candles between seasons. And whenever possible, try to light your candles within 12 months of buying them.
