What are the candle care guidelines I should be aware of?

When you first light your jar candle, keep it lit for 4 hours. This creates a memory for the life of the candle and ensures an even burn each time. Once cooled, you can trim the wick if desired. Wicks should be trimmed to 5mm. We recommend burning the candles for 3-4 hours at a time. Tea lights and melts can be burnt as and when required.

What are the Stix by Luminous Candles reed diffuser care guidelines I should be aware of?

When you first open your Stix reed diffuser and insert the reeds (“stix”), you should let them soak for 5 to 10 minutes. Once soaked, you should up-end or turn over the stix. You should up-end the stix weekly or fortnightly, depending on how strong the fragrance is. Most fragrances will last 3-4 months from date of opening. If any liquid is spilled, you should wipe up immediately with a paper town ensuring all liquid residue has been removed.
