How to burn the backhouse:

  • Burn candle within sight and on a flat surface
  • Keep away from pets, little ones & combustibles
  • Burn on a heat resistant surface
  • Before relighting, trim wick 1/4" and remove loose pieces
  • Stop burning when only 1/4” of wax remains
  • Don’t burn for more than 4 hours at a time. It will be tough, but trust us on this one.  
  • Enjoy! And show us the spaces you love by tagging #burnthebackhouse on social media.

Q:  Why does my candle look separated from the glass?
A:  Due to weather conditions, sometimes a slight slippage from the glass occurs.  Your candle is not damaged and this issue will resolve while burning. During the drying process, depending on the room's temperature, the wax can pull away from the glass as it cools, creating this effect. However, once the candle is lit, it will go away as the glass heats up.
