How To Take Care of Your Candle

To ensure that your candles last longer and burn safely, it is important to take proper care of them. Here are some steps on how to take care of a candle:

    1. Choose the right location: When placing your candle, make sure to choose a safe and suitable location. Keep your candles away from flammable materials, such as curtains or paper, and never leave them unattended.

    2. Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, trim the wick to 1/4 inch. This will help prevent smoking and uneven burning. You can use a pair of scissors or a wick trimmer to do this.

    3. Burn for the right amount of time: When you first light your candle, allow it to burn until the entire surface has melted into a pool of wax. This will prevent tunneling and ensure an even burn. It is also important to avoid burning your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

    4. Extinguish the candle properly: When extinguishing your candle, use a snuffer or gently blow it out. This will help prevent hot wax from splattering and prevent the wick from smoking. Do not use water to extinguish a candle, as this can cause the wax to splatter and damage the wick.

    5. Store properly: Store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This will help prevent the wax from melting and ensure that the candle maintains its scent and color.

    6. Clean the wax pool: As your candle burns, it is important to keep the wax pool clean. This can be done by gently removing any debris, such as wick trimmings, with a spoon or other tool. This will prevent the debris from affecting the burn of your candle.

    7. If you have one of our crystal candles, make sure to remove large crystal as it begins to expose from the wax. Ensure the wick is not lit when doing so. Use a spoon or similar object - crystal will be hot, handle with caution.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your candles burn safely and last longer. Taking proper care of your candles will not only enhance their appearance and scent, but also provide you with a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
