5 Ways to Care for Your Candles

Candles are a staple in many homes, adding warmth and ambiance to any room. But how do you make sure your candles last and stay looking and smelling great? Here are 5 tips to take care of your candles:

  1. Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to ¼ inch. This will help prevent uneven burning and black soot buildup.

  2. Burn evenly: Allow your candle to burn long enough to reach the edges of the container. This helps prevent tunneling, where the wax only melts in the center and leaves a rim of unused wax around the edges.

  3. Store properly: Keep your candles out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. This helps prevent melting, warping, and discoloration.

  4. Clean the container: After the candle has burned down, clean out any remaining wax and residue. You can also reuse the container for other purposes!

  5. Enjoy the scent: Candles are a great way to add fragrance to your home. But how do you choose the right scent? Consider the mood you want to set and the season. For a cozy winter vibe, try scents like cinnamon, vanilla, or pine. For a fresh spring feel, go for floral scents like lavender or jasmine.
