How to take care of your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle

We're here to make sure your candle experience stays wonderful. From trimming the wick to knowing how long to burn it, we'll explore simple steps to keep your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle glowing and smelling delightful.

Trim your wick

Trimming your wick might sound like a small detail, but it's a big deal for ensuring your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle stays in tip-top shape. 

Before you light it up, take a moment to make sure the wick is around 6mm long. This simple step does wonders – it helps your candle burn evenly, preventing issues like excess soot and overheating. The result? A longer-lasting candle that continues to fill your space with that delightful KINSHIP fragrance. So, consider it a quick pre-lighting ritual.


Three hour burn time

Limiting your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle to a three-hour burn time is a smart move for a couple of reasons. First, it helps prevent the vessel from overheating, which can be risky. Second, it avoids creating excessively deep wax pools, ensuring a safer and more controlled burning experience. Plus, it's a great way to maximise the lifespan of your candle. So, when you're enjoying the comforting glow of your KINSHIP candle, keep it to a three-hour burn to make every moment as pleasant and safe as possible.

Burn to the edge of the vessel

Burning your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle to the edge of the vessel might seem like a small detail, but it's a game-changer. This practice ensures an even burn every time, preventing issues like tunnelling and maximising the total burning time of your candle. Think of it as giving your candle a chance to create a "burn memory" – the more consistently you do this, the longer your candle will last, providing you with extended moments of delightful fragrance. So, make it a habit to let your KINSHIP candle reach the edge, and watch as it transforms each burn into a longer and more satisfying experience.

When to extinguish

Knowing when to extinguish your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle is key to its longevity and safety. When there's only about 10mm/1cm of wax left, it's time to say goodbye to the flame. 

At this point, the wick is designed to self-extinguish to prevent overheating, breakages, or accidents. It's a safeguard built into your candle, signalling that it has reached the end of its burn. So, when you notice this small amount of wax remaining, consider it a gentle reminder to let your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle gracefully finish its journey, ensuring both your enjoyment and safety.

How to extinguish

Putting out your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle is easy. Don't use water – it can make a mess. Instead, use a snuffer or gently blow on the flame. This way, your candle stays clean, and the fragrance remains nice. So, when you're ready to say goodbye to the glow, just remember to do it gently for a better candle experience.

Reusing and recycling KINSHIP by ECOYA candles

Let's talk about how you can keep enjoying your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle even after it's done. It's not just about the nice smell – it's also about being kind to the environment. We'll explore easy ways to use the candle jar again and share fun ideas for giving it a new purpose. This is all about making your KINSHIP experience last longer and keeping things simple and sustainable.

Reusing your candle

Reusing your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle is a great way to make the most out of it. Once the wax is gone, give the jar a gentle cleaning with warm, soapy water. After that, you've got a versatile jar that can be used in many creative ways. 

It makes for a lovely vase, a handy holder for makeup brushes, or a neat organiser for small items. So, don't say goodbye to your candle jar just yet – let it transform into something useful and charming in your everyday life

Recycling your candle

Recycling your KINSHIP by ECOYA candle is a simple and eco-friendly step. Start by removing any leftover wax and the wick tab. Freeze the jar to easily separate the wax from the glass, and then use a gentle cloth for cleaning. 

Once you've done that, you can recycle the glass jar, giving it a new purpose. This way, you not only extend the life of your candle but also contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.

Reed diffuser care

Welcome to the world of reed diffusers – an easy way to make your space smell wonderful. In this part, we'll go through simple steps to ensure your diffuser keeps spreading amazing scents in your home.

Reed diffuser safety

Ensuring the safety of your KINSHIP by ECOYA reed diffuser is essential for a worry-free and enjoyable experience. Always place the diffuser out of reach of children and pets to prevent any accidents. 

Additionally, be cautious to avoid direct contact with the fragrant oil on your skin, fabrics, and surfaces. By prioritising these safety measures, you can confidently enjoy the fragrance of your KINSHIP by ECOYA reed diffuser.

Where to place your KINSHIP by ECOYA reed diffuser

Deciding where to place your KINSHIP by ECOYA reed diffuser is a simple but crucial step in making sure your space always has a delightful fragrance. Look for a cool and shaded area in your home, as this helps the scent to spread evenly, creating a pleasant atmosphere. Avoid spots with a lot of drafts or breezes, as this might make the fragrance less noticeable. 

By finding the perfect spot, you're ensuring that your KINSHIP reed diffuser consistently fills your home with its captivating aroma, making every moment more enjoyable. So, take a moment to choose the right place and let the wonderful scent of KINSHIP transform your space.

Setting your diffuser up

Setting up your KINSHIP by ECOYA reed diffuser is a breeze and adds a touch of delightful fragrance to your space. Start by removing the plastic stopper from the bottle to allow the fragrance oil to absorb into the reeds. This step ensures that the scent is released gradually, creating a pleasant and inviting environment. 

By taking a moment to set up your reed diffuser correctly, you enhance its effectiveness and make each day at home a fragrant experience. Enjoy the simplicity of setting up your diffuser and relish the beautiful scents that follow.
