The first time you light your candle:
Allow your candle to burn until the top layer of wax is fully melted. Please keep in mind this may take several hours. The first burn is important to prevent tunneling which refers to an uneven burn where the wax near the wick melts but the edges do not.
- Trim the wick to 0.5 - 1 cm length each time before lighting. A long wick can cause black smoke to occur and flaring. Trimming the wick also prevents rapid burning so it will make your candle last longer.
- Keep your candle away from drafts. Bursts of air can cause the flame to dance around and give off soot.
- Re-center and straighten the wick if needed after putting your candle out. This will prevent an uneven burn and soot stains forming on the candle vessel.
- Do not leave a burning candle unattended. Keep your candle out of reach from kids and pets.
- Place your candle on a stable, fireproof surface or holder away from flammable items.
- Store your candle in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or intense light to extend the longevity of your candle.
- Do not burn your candle all the way down. Leave at least 5 mm of wax (not melted) at the bottom. This will prevent possible heat damage to the jar and the surface your candle is placed on.
- After the first burn, do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time. This will preserve the fragrance and extend the life of your candle.
- Last but not least! Once you’ve burned out your candle, breathe new life into your candle vessel and repurpose it in your home. Click here for ideas on how to reuse your candle vessel (from a chic pen holder to a cute succulent vase to a vanity organizer).
How to take care of solid brass accessories?
Our accessories are handmade from 100% solid brass. Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, is one of the most durable metals. It does not rust and when treated carefully, it can last for generations.
- To clean / buff out fingerprints, use a soft cloth
- With time and use, solid brass will develop a unique, natural patina. It is a matter of personal taste whether you polish the brass or not. To restore the original luster, clean with a gentle brass polish and a soft cloth
- Use a protective cloth or padding when storing or stacking
- Do not place in the dishwasher
- Our accessories are for decorative use only
Given the handmade nature of our accessories, slight variations and imperfections are possible and are to be celebrated. Each accessory is unique and no two are exactly alike.

Where does the name AAYALI come from?
The story goes as follows:
Julie, our founder, was traveling through India when building the foundation for AAYALI. While brainstorming a name for the brand, she came across the name "Anjali" (a girl's name in India) which means "gift" in Sanskrit. The word immediately resonated with Julie and after playing around with different permutations, AAYALI was born. The connection of the underlying meaning to our brand mission made it the perfect brand name!
We’ve all been given the extraordinary gift of life. It is our responsibility and our choice how we live it, what we do with it and how we give meaning to our life, our gift.
