Candle Care

Candles are a great way to create a cosy and relaxing atmosphere in your home. They come in a variety of scents and styles, making them a versatile addition to any décor. However, it's important to take proper care of your candles to ensure that they burn safely and efficiently. Here are some tips for candle care:

  1. Trim the wick - Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. This will help prevent the flame from getting too large and causing the candle to burn too quickly.

  2. Burn the candle for the recommended time - Most candles come with instructions on how long they should be burned for. It's important to follow these instructions to ensure that the candle burns evenly and doesn't create a deep wax pool that can lead to a dangerous flame.

  3. Keep the candle away from drafts - A draft can cause the flame to flicker and burn unevenly, which can lead to a dangerous flame. Make sure to keep your candle in a draft-free area.

  4. Use a candle snuffer - When extinguishing your candle, use a candle snuffer instead of blowing it out. This will help prevent hot wax from splattering and potentially causing a fire.

  5. Store candles properly - If you have unused candles, make sure to store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This will help preserve the scent and quality of the candle.

By taking these simple steps, you can ensure that your candles burn safely and provide a relaxing atmosphere for your home. Remember to always practice caution when using candles, and never leave them unattended.
