How to properly care for your candles and ensure that they last longer.

According to popular belief, selecting the right candle for your living space is akin to choosing a partner – it requires understanding and care to maintain them well. To assist you with this, we have compiled some helpful tips that can help prolong the lifespan of your candles.

Tip #1 – Melt the wax till the jar's edges on the first burn

When lighting a new candle, it is crucial to ensure that the first burn is thorough. This can be achieved by burning the candle for an extended period to melt the wax until it reaches the jar's edges. Our candles are crafted by double boiling soy wax, incorporating essential oils, and solidifying the mixture. Due to the soy wax's melting point, burning the first layer of wax entirely during the first burn will make subsequent burns more manageable and smoother.

Tip #2 – Avoid blowing out the flame

Blowing out the candle after use may not be the best option. This is because black smoke usually emits from the wick, which can be detrimental to your health. Instead, it is recommended to use a candle snuffer or immediately cover the candle with a lid after blowing out the flame. These alternatives help to keep the scented aroma lingering while also maintaining your health.

Tip #3 – Trim the wick regularly

We all love watching the flame flicker while reminiscing about the past. However, to ensure that the flame continues to dance beautifully, it is essential to trim the wick regularly. A long untrimmed wick can lead to a larger flame, causing the candle to burn faster than usual. Therefore, maintaining the wick length at around 0.6cm-0.8cm can help you get the most out of your candle's lifespan.
