Candle care tips

  • Approximate burning time:
    4 oz = 30 hours
    8 oz = 50 hours

  • First use: the first time you light up, make sure to keep your candle burning until the melted wax has reached the jar's rim (all the way around). Our 4 oz candles will need about 2 hours and the 8 oz candles will take about 3-4 hours to reach the edge of the jar. Thus, during subsequent uses, the wax will burn uniformly.

  • Never keep your candle lit for more than 4 hours at a time. Doing so can lead to a large flame, black soot on the jar and buildup on the wick which can fall off into the melted wax.

  • Always trim the wick to 1/4" before each use.

  • Stop using when there is about 0.5 cm of wax at the bottom of the jar.

  • If at any time the flame becomes to large, immediately extinguish the candle and allow the wax to re-solidify before trimming the wick down and re-lighting. 

  • Cleaning: rinse the jar with hot water to remove the remaining wax and then clean with dish soap.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or in the reach of flammable objects, children or pets.

  • Upcycle your used candle jars: we have many ideas and inspirations to give your jars a second life.

  • Recycling program: bring us your empty jars in exchange for a reduction on your next T. Lees purchase.


  • Let your soap dry completely between each use to avoid having a soggy, mushy bar. We recommend using a natural wood soap dish (pine and cedar are best) with good drainage.

Lip balms

  • Our lip balms contain a high percentage of coconut oil which melts easily in the heat so avoid keeping them in your pockets or in your cars in the summer heat.
