Life + Home’s Riona candle is made with high-quality brass which is hand-hammered and polished to give it a distinct look. Our hand-poured brass candles with its warm earthy glow make the perfect gift for any occasion. We create our candles in small batches to ensure the best possible experience when burning. Designed to be minimal yet luxurious, each of our candles brings a beautiful aroma to delight your senses. For the best burn experience, keep the following in mind: The first time you light your candle, allow it to burn until the wax pool melts all the way to the edge; for a larger candle, this may take several hours. Wax has “memory,” so if it is extinguished with a partial pool, that will prevent a full, even pool from forming in the future. Trim your wick each time you light the candle, removing any “bloom” from the previous burn. We recommend lighting a wick that is 1/4-1/2″ in length. Ensure that your candle is placed on a heat-safe surface. Do not allow wick trimmings, dust, or other materials to accumulate in the wax pool. WARNING: While the candle is burning, the sides of the candle will become HOT. Please allow the candle to cool after extinguishing the flame before handling the candle. Keep out of reach of children and pets and never leave a burning candle unattended.
