Candle Care Guide: How To Care For Your Candles

Click here to read about the easy ways you can care for your candles to ensure you get the most use out of them!

Did you know that there is a proper way to light your candles? It's true! Improper candle care can lead to an abundance of soot, wick mushrooming, tunneling, flooding, and more! Keep reading to learn how to combat all of these issues!

Candle care tip #1: Trim your wick!

Did you know that you need to trim your wicks? An untrimmed wick can lead to issues such as wick mushrooming, soot around your vessel, and large flames that can lead to fire hazards. It's best to keep your wick trimmed to 1/4". It's recommended to use a wick trimmer because you'll get a straighter cut, but you can also use scissors or nail clippers!

Care tip #2: Get a full melt pool

What is a full melt pool? Simply put, it's just how much wax is melted when you light your candle. A full melt pool means you've let the wax melt to the point where the entire top layer is melted. This can take anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on the size of your candle. Getting a full melt pool ensures that your candle will not tunnel. That's when wax stays on the side of your candle vessel while the wick gets lower and lower.

Taking these simple steps can improve the life of your candle and your candle-burning experience. Click here to learn more about us and our company on our blog!
