Candle Care

Our candles are mainly intended for decorative use but can certainly be lit. If you choose to light our candles, make sure to place it on a tray to catch the wax and cut the wick to 1 cm.

We recommend that you do not place the candles in direct sunlight and warm spaces. This is to avoid any sun damage and the candle melting in hot temperatures.

Side note: Pigments are at the expense of flammability of the candles. This means that colored candles ‘melts’ when placed in direct sunlight or warm places. Ivory colored candles tend to experience this to a lesser extent.



We offer many handmade candles in various colors which means that we don’t have every candle in every color in stock. Therefore, the expected delivery time is about 5-7 days from the time of order. We try our best to create a larger stock and make the candles as quickly as possible, so you won’t have to wait that long! 🙂

CandlesAmsterdam is not responsible for any problems concerning our delivery service. But of course, when there is a problemen, we will do anything to help you.

Our candles cannot be returned or changed for another candle.
