Candle Care

Updated: Jul 20, 2023



Candles have the ability to transform any space into a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. Whether you enjoy lighting candles to unwind after a long day or to set the mood for a special occasion, taking care of your candles is essential to ensure they burn safely and last longer. Here are some tips for proper candle care:

  1. Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to 1/4 inch. This will prevent the flame from becoming too large and flickering, which can lead to uneven burning and soot buildup.

  2. Burn for the right amount of time: Candles should be burned for a maximum of 4 hours at a time. This prevents the wax from melting too quickly and helps to prevent tunneling, where the candle burns down the middle and leaves wax on the sides.

  3. Keep the wax pool even: When burning a candle for the first time, make sure to let the wax pool reach the edges of the container. This will prevent the candle from tunneling and ensure an even burn throughout the life of the candle.

  4. Extinguish properly: To extinguish a candle, use a snuffer or gently blow it out. Avoid blowing the candle out forcefully, as this can cause wax to splatter and increase the risk of fire.

  5. Store candles properly: Store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. This will prevent the wax from melting and ensure the fragrance remains intact.

By following these tips, you can enjoy your candles safely and make them last longer. Happy candle burning!
