The sweetest fragrance for your herb garden!
Lavender is a perennial flowering plant native to the Mediterranean. Munstead Blue, in particular, is its compact, early blooming, English variety, with bluish-purple flowers above slender, aromatic, grey-green leaves. First introduced in 1916 by the garden designer Gertrude Jekyll, and named after her house Munstead Wood in Surrey, England, this variety is a great choice for containers and is widely used in cooking as a condiment for salads, soups, stews. It provides a very aromatic flavour that is too strong to be used in large quantity. Its fresh or dried flowers are used to make tea, while the fresh flowers can be crystallized or added to jams, ice cream and vinegars. An essential oil is also made from the flowers for both culinary and therapeutic purposes

To get the most out of your KIP Candle Co. candle:
Allow a full melt pool.
Always ensure you get a full melt pool across the top of the candle; the wax should be completely melted to the edges of the container to avoid your candle ‘tunelling’ down the middle and wasting wax. We suggest 3-4hrs of burn time per session (although never leave your candles unattended).
Trim your wick.
Before each burn trim your wick to 5mm to avoid large flames and smoking. Remove any black from the wick with scissors before lighting.
We love our wooden wicks-they look great and the gentle crackling sound is super cosy.
They are a natural material and as such can be slightly more temperamental than our other wicks.
Follow the tips below and you should have no problem!
Trim your wooden wicks to 5mm and always clean off any burnt wood from previous use. This is best done when the candle is completely cool so charred wood doesn't stray into your molten wax.
It’s the candle wax being drawn up the wick that fuels the flame, not the wood, so if you have a wick that keeps going out it’s probably too long meaning the wax can’t make it to the flame.
If you notice one of the wicks has gone out, trim and relight as soon as you notice to keep an even burn. Scissors or nail clippers will do the job!
