Candle Care + FAQ
*FOR THE FIRST LIGHT*
When you light a new candle for the first time, you have to let the wax melt across the entire surface of the candle. This is to prevent wasting valuable wax and reducing your candle's life, please follow this rule! The wax of the candle will only melt as far as it did the very first time you burned it. That's why it is important to let the entire top layer of wax melt to the edge of the container the first time you light it. This gives it plenty of time to melt the top layer evenly, and it also helps to achieve the strongest, most bold smell.
Try to not burn your candle for more than Six hours at a time
Lazy Lizard Candles are made for very long burns, we crafted our wax blend and wicks for safe and sustained slow burns that slowly fill and embed the scent into the room. With that said burning for long times can inhibit a forgetful scenario, so as a safety measure we do not recommend burning our candles longer then 6 hours. This will prevent the wick from becoming unstable and producing a larger flame.
Candles do not like sunlight!
The sun, and harsh indoor lighting, can cause unsightly damage to your candles over time. Keeping them out of direct sunlight (preferably in cooler, darker places) will extend the beauty and scent of your candle.
Frequently asked questions
Is this suitable for me?
This is not an army march but we will be in hilly terrain. It is aimed at those wanting to gain more confidence in the hills. For Silver, you must be proficient in the above Bronze skills but you don't need to hold a Bronze Award. I will always try and accommodate everyone but if unsure please drop me an email.
What do I need to bring?
Please see the recommended kit list here (ignore the additional extras for wilderness backpacking as we won't be doing that!). You will need your own compass (Silva Expedition 4 recommended) and map case (Ortleib is recommended). We'll be using OL19 "Howgill Fells and Upper Eden Valley" Ordinance Survey maps and it is expected that you will have your own at this level. However, I am able to provide maps.
Where do we meet?
We meet at the Fat Lamb Inn in Ravenstonedale near Kirkby Stephen. It is easily accessible from Sedbergh, the M6, A65 and A66.
I'm coming from further afield, where can I stay nearby?
This is up to you depending on your budget. However there are nearby campsites, youth hostels, hotels and B&Bs around Ravenstonedale, Sedbergh and Kirkby Stephen.
