Candle Care 101 - 5 ways to care for your candle

So you're finding yourself at home with one of our candles ready for a day of relaxation. But before you embark on your sweet aroma escape, there are a few tips we want you to know to maximize your experience. Here are our five tips for caring for your candle!
 
Before Burning
 
1. Trim your wick. After using your candle for a while your wick will start looking longer than the first time you opened it. To ensure your candle burns longer and more efficiently we recommend trimming your wick. Optimal length should be under a centimeter.
.
2. Safe Keeping. It is always good to keep the candle in its original box and protect it from discoloration, fading, and collecting dust. Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and debris, including burnt matches.
 
While it's Burning
 
3. Candle's optimal burning time. We recommend burning your candle for no more than 4 hours. But if you can’t wait to fuel your senses with the smell, you can at least wait 2 hours before lighting it up again.
.
4. Burn evenly! You know the rim of wax left around your candle after you blow the flame? Yup, it’s best to avoid those. It’s important that your candle burns completely liquid equally across the surface before you turn it off. Usually this process can take 2-3 hour.
So before you light up your candle, make sure you have enough time to enjoy it.
 
After burning
 
 
5. Recenter your candle's wick. After you blow your candle, check the status of your wick. If you need to recenter your wick, slowly guide it back to the middle of your candle.
 
We hope you apply any of these tips next time you light one of our candles. Are there any other tips you practice to maximize your candle's life?
