Candle Info & Care

Thankyou for choosing a greenbottleglass candle - we really hope you love them as much as we do.  

General Information:

  • Dual purpose! Firstly a candle and then a beautiful tumbler drinking glass when the wax is gone.

  • Burn Time: approx. 30 hours

  • Completely natural combination of Coconut and Rapeseed wax.

  • Natural wooden wick, with a donation from each wick purchased to trees.org

  • Clean, even, soot free burn.

  • Handpoured in Norfolk in collaboration with The Candle Brand.

All our glasses are especially selected not only for their colour but also the quality of their "punt" (the dimple in the bottom of the bottle). Obviously, as the base of the glass is not flat bottomed this means that the candle will not burn right to the bottom of the glass. However, after prolonged testing we think that our candles should burn for about 30 hours.

Burn Time:

 

We advise you not to burn your candle for any longer than 4 hours at a time and ideally 2-3 hours at a time. This is most important on the first burn to induce the correct wax memory.

 

Trim your wick:

When you want to relight your candle you must remove the burnt wood of your wick in between burns. You can do this by pinching the black wood with your fingers, lightly wiggle, and snap off what is easily removed. Please refrain from cutting your wick as it is very easy to cut the wick too short.

Conversion to a drinking glass : When the candle is gone....the glass lives on.

Once your candle has burnt down to the top of the punt you need to remove the left over wax from the glass.  We've found this is best done by popping the candle in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes, which warms the outside of the glass and melts the edge layer of the residual wax.  You can then use a normal cutlery fork to remove the wax in a single lump.  We usually do this on a piece of old newspaper or kitchen roll.  Please be careful of any hot surfaces or wax melt, and use the appropriate PPE.  If you are unsure, please do call us.

We recommend wiping out any small amounts of residual wax once cool and disposing safely before washing the glass. Please don't put wax down your sink (or to the environment) - it will block your drains once hard. 

 

Hand washing is best with normal washing up liquid and hot water, although our glass can be put in the dishwasher.

When the candle is gone....the glass lives on.  Enjoy.
