I’m obsessed with candles. I think most women secretly are. So when on the hunt for a new one I came across ‘crosslane candles’. 

Locally made and hand poured literally 30 minutes from me! I love supporting local businesses especially when it’s hand made. 

I caught up with Katie, the founder and it turns out not only does she have some incredibly beautiful smelling candles, but I’ve been burning them wrong this entire time! 

"There’s a thing called candle memory", so basically there is a right way and a wrong way to burn a candle. I'm pretty sure 99% of us are doing in wrong.

The reality is, most people are lighting their candles incorrectly. Yes, there is a right and wrong way to light a candle! That’s because candles have a memory, which is formed the first time we light them. The way the wax burns the first time creates the path that each subsequent burn will follow.

So how do you keep your candle looking and smelling beautiful? Allow the candle to burn the whole way – to pool right to the outer rim – before you blow it out the first time. Mind blown.

Every time you light a Crosslane candle, you’ll be transported to your happy place. Their vegan soy candles are hand poured in micro batches, using only natural ingredients. All made in Sydney, Australia.

A message from Katie

"Each fragrance I have definitely sparks a memory for me, weather it’s reminding me of a warm summers night (coconut and lime) to a salad ( basil and cucumber) to Camilla and lotus which brings back the best memories of me living in Elizabeth bay with a great friend of mine a few years back. I numbered the candles initially as my favourites 1-6 but honestly it changes every week. At the moment I’m in the middle of testing more fragrances to come on board so it can change daily. Tobacco & Hay and Camilla & Lotus have become the most popular by far and my favourite for this month."

Kind on the environment, hand made, vegan and good for you soul. Just make sure you are burning them correctly!
