Our candles are lovingly made by highly-skilled artisans in Kerala using centuries-old, traditional techniques. Each candle is hand-poured, exquisite and unique. With the right care, your MAJO Candle will be a thing of beauty and pleasure for many years to come. Our biggest candle, the RUMI, can achieve a burn time of more than 600 hours.
Just follow these simple tips to help prolong the life of your candle:
- When you light your MAJO Candle for the first time, let it burn it for at least 6-8 hours or until an even pool of melted wax has formed across the surface. This will help your candle burn more evenly next time you light it.
- When you put out your candle, dip the wick in the melted wax and straighten it up ready for the next time you want to light it. The wax creates a waterproof seal around the wick which will protect it from the elements and allow you to use the candle all year round.
- It is possible that very cold weather conditions such as frost could cause your candle to crack. For this reason, we recommend keeping your candle covered during colder weather below 10 C or bringing it inside for storage.
