4 Tips to Make Your Candles Last Longer
We know that your candle was an investment and a little slice of self-care heaven, so—let’s make it last as long as possible.
Proper candle care makes candles burn cleaner, last longer and look better. Just by following these four tips below, you can extend the life of your candle by 30%!
- Trim the candle wick to 1/4” before burning each time. This keeps the flame shorter and the candle burning cooler to avoid black smoke and quick burning. We recommend our accessory kits to assist with trimming wicks and extinguishing your candles correctly.
- Let the candle burn long enough so that the melted wax pool reaches the edge of the vessel each time. This ensures that all the wax is being used and avoids tunnelling.
- Do not burn the candle for more than four hours at one time.
- Remove the candle from any outside breezes or inside fans. Wind will make your wick flicker around and ultimately burn your candle unevenly.
In addition to these tips, never burn your candle if there is less than 1/2" of wax remaining in the vessel. This Increases the fire hazard as the glass could overheat and crack. It is also wise to never leave your candle unattended or near anything flammable.
