Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I GET THE MOST FROM MY MAX BENJAMIN CANDLE?

Your Max Benjamin candle is made with 100% natural wax, lead-free wicks and contains essential and fragrance oils which all make it unique. Your candle needs a little TLC to get the most from it.

A few tips:

  •  When lighting your candle for the first time, always let it burn until the first layer of wax is fully melted and the pool of wax reaches the glass. This will ensure a more even burn.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to the length it was when new.
  • Do not burn for more than four hours at a time.
  • When the candle is lit do not touch the glass, leave it unattended or in a draught.

HOW LONG WILL MY CANDLE BURN FOR?

Natural Wax can burn for longer than Paraffin wax. You should get a minimum of 40 hours from your Max Benjamin candle.


HOW DOES NATURAL WAX COMPARE WITH PARAFFIN WAX?

Our natural waxes are biodegradable and are renewable and sustainable resources. When you light a Max Benjamin 100% Natural Wax Scented Candle you can enjoy the unique atmosphere each fragrance brings without feeling you are causing any harm to the environment. Our wax burns cleaner than paraffin with no petrol-carbon soot. Our Wax burns slowly and is free from pesticides and any genetically modified material.


WHAT ARE THE WICKS MADE FROM?

Our wicks are made from natural Italian cotton and are free of lead.
