Candle Burning Tips

At Petit Rituels we want you to enjoy your candle to its fullest. We would like to share with you our own special ritual which is designed especially to unleash the beautiful scent of your candle. There’s so much more to just burning your candle – here’s how to get the best from your experience and enjoy our carefully created aromas.  Let them envelope your senses completely!

Burn Time

The first time you use your Petits Rituels candle, allow it to burn for at least 3 hours, this ensures a good melt pool is established and prevents the candle from tunnelling afterwards.

Trim the Wick

Before lighting your Petits Rituels candle, we suggest you trim the wick by breaking it gently with your fingers.  Each time you use the candle, repeat the wick trimming before re-lighting.. This prevents black soot from appearing when you want to burn the candle again.

Realign the Wick

After blowing out your candle, re-centre the wick if necessary.


Only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface and avoid burning the candle in draughty areas.


Finally – we want you to enjoy the unique scents of our Petits Rituels candles so sit back, relax and let the aroma take you somewhere wonderful!
