Millie’s Melts & Candles

Millie’s Melts & Candles perform best when you treat them with love and care.

Simply put, following a few instructions and safety precautions will ensure that you get the very best from your candles, each and every time you use them.

As a result, your room will soon be filled with the scent that makes you go Mmm…


Firstly check your wax warmer / oil burner for cracks and chips. Never use a cracked or chipped item, it will overheat and become a hazard.

Next, place your warmer somewhere sensible.

By this, we mean: Never place it above or near a radiator, on a windowsill or against a wall. This will create a ‘heat trap’ and again, become hazardous.

Make sure that it is out of reach of children and pets and also away from curtains or blinds. Ideally place your warmer in an open space if possible and with a coaster underneath to protect the surface.

Now, place your MmmMelt in a wax warmer and light an unscented tea light below. Never use 8 hour tea lights as this will cause the warmer to overheat. And only ever use one candle, unless you have a warmer that is specifically designed for more.

Alternatively, if you are using an electric wax melter, simply plug it in and pop a MmmMelt in the resevoire.

Do not overload the bowl, this will cause the wax to overflow. Our melts are strong enough so one melt is plenty, and should last 3-4 burns.

Ensure wax melts are stored in a safe place away from children, as they may resemble edibles.

Wax melts do not evaporate so once they eventually lose their scent, the wax melt should be discarded.

However, do not pour melted wax. The wax we use is soft enough to easily scoop out, even when fully cooled. Avoid using a metallic instrument to do this, as you may scratch the bowl.

Most importantly, to prevent fire and serious injury, always burn your candle within sight.

Avoid draughts and vibrations. Candles burn at their best in still air, if you cannot avoid draughts, turn your candle periodically to help your candle burning evenly.

Equally as important, always place the candle on a level fire resistant surface, and away from anything that could potentially catch fire. Such as, curtains or blinds for example.

Also, be sure to always place your candles and burners out of reach of children and pets.

Finally, never burn your candle on a delicate or non-heat resistant surface. See label on the bottom of the candle for further health and safety advice.

Alternatively, visit the British Candlemakers website for more information.

For your safety, and to protect any surrounding furnishings or items, always use a candle snuffer to snuff out your candle, rather than blowing it out.

This creates less soot & smoke.

Firstly, trim the wick to 5mm before lighting, with a pair of sharp scissors or a pair of candle wick trimmers.

This helps to stop any build up on your wicks and encourages your candle to perform to its best, providing the cleanest and even burn possible.

However, do not discard the trimmings or used matches into the wax pool. If you have long hair, it’s best to tie it back before lighting your candle.

Burn for 2-4 hours a time. We advise on not burning your candle any longer than the maximum recommended burn time.

Most importantly, ensure the melt pool reaches the edge of the candle container before extinguishing.

As a result, this will help to prevent a ‘tunneling effect’ and is especially important during the first burn.

We advise using a candle snuffer to extinguish your candle, as this will prevent your wicks from drifting off centre. As a result, your candle burn time is maximised.

Blowing out your candle may cause the liquid wax may splatter, and your wick may continue to glow and emit a small amount of smoke, therefore, it is not recommended.

Ideally, always extinguish your candle by using a snuffer.

Once your candle is extinguished, allow the wax to solidify and then follow the candle storage advice below.

Alternatively, you should stop burning the candle when there is approximately 1/4 inch of wax remaining at the bottom of the vessel.

Due to the unique design of the wood wick, it is unlikely that the candles in the jars would need trimming.

When lighting the candle, light the wick at one end and allow the flame to naturally flow across the wick.

Occasionally, your flame height may vary, and it may even appear to self-extinguish.

Even at a low flame, the wick will continue to heat, and the flame height should return shortly.

Candles and melts are sensitive to light and temperature, causing them to crack, lose colour, scent, and melt.

Therefore, store your candles and melts in an upright position and in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Also, keep your candles dust free by covering the candle with a lid, a dust cover or by placing your candle under a glass cloche.

Occasionally, candles happen to ‘tunnel’ when burning, meaning that your candle is not getting an even burn.

In order to experience your MmmMelts candle to its full aromas, it is important that your candle burns evenly, and for long enough.

Therefore, we recommend purchasing a candle topper accessory.

Candle toppers act as a sheild, which in turn, helps reduce flickering of the flame, while simultaneously maintaining a consistent airflow.

This results in reduced soot, and a better release of a candles fragrance notes, helping your candle live up to our hopes.
