Care for your citronella candles

Enjoy an evening in the garden, out tea light citronella candles burn best in one go but they will relight another day if you are just having an hour or two for that first burn. Always read full details on the information slip before use.

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Use in a container. Never move a burning candle.
