SAFRANUM - THE WORLD scented candle 960g
For centuries, saffron has been regarded a luxury good. Apparently both Cleopatra and Alexander the Great used it while taking a bath. For different purposes: she believed that saffron was a powerful aphrodisiac, he was convinced that such a bath would heal his wounds. They were both right, for saffron has both healing and invigorating properties. However, these are not its only uses. The civilisation of ancient Greece used saffron to bleach hair, Persians as a sacrifice for deities, and the spice was found on the tables of the then world rulers.
The most famous frescoes depicting saffron harvest (which, by the way, are a genuine challenge) were found in Crete. One of them, depicting a young man, was a direct inspiration for the creation of the SAFRANUM candle, whose oriental, fruity and woody fragrance sends us right to the areas where first civilisations emerged.
SAFRANUM will respond to the needs of all those wanting to use the fragrance to travel to distant, fascinating corners of the world and feel the connection to the past.
Burning a candle
To ensure that your candles last as long as possible, we recommend that you read the following tips.
Each candle burning session should not last shorter than until the wax is melted all the way across the surface. To prevent black flames, trim the wick to about 0.5 cm before the next time you lit a candle. Remove the cut portion from the candle. On single occasion, do not burn the candle for longer than 4 hours. Avoid moving or tilting a burning candle.
If the wick is leaning slightly, gently straighten it before the wax hardens again. It is recommended to wait until the wax hardens completely before lighting a candle up again. It's best to use a candle extinguisher or a candle snuffer hat to extinguish a candle. It’s also important not to let the candle burn all the way down. We recommend that you discontinue burning the candle when there remains less than 1 centimeter of unmelted wax.
Do not store the candle in damp places or in places exposed to direct sunlight. If the candle requires cleaning, it can be gently washed in cold water and left to dry out before next use. It’s worth noticing that wax colour can differ depending on the fragrance, which is a natural phenomenon resulting from oil composition.
The candle should always be placed in a safe, temperature-resistant place. It’s important to place the candle away from flammable materials such as furniture and curtains and sources of heat, such as radiators and TVs. Keep burning candles away from draughts.
If there are a few candles burning, keep a minimum distance of 20 centimetres between them. It’s also important not to leave the burning candle unattended. Do not move the burning candle to avoid the risk of spilling hot wax.
Remember that the flame should not reach glass walls as it may cause damage and cracking. If you’re hypersensitive to fragrances, exercise necessary caution while burning the candle.
It’s also important to keep candles away from children and pets to avoid accidental access to flame and prevent potential dangers.
