Candles are a great way to add ambiance and warmth to your home, but they require proper care to burn safely and evenly. Here are some candle care tips to help you get the most out of your candles:

  1. Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, always trim the wick to about ¼ inch. This will prevent the flame from flickering and causing uneven burning. 

  2. Burn for the right amount of time: When lighting a candle for the first time, let it burn long enough to create a full melt pool across the surface. This usually takes about two to three hours. This will ensure that the candle burns evenly throughout its lifespan.

  3. Keep the candle away from drafts: Candles should be kept away from windows, doors, and other areas with drafts. This will prevent the flame from flickering and causing uneven burning. It will also help to keep the candle burning for longer.

  4. Store candles properly: Store your candles in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. This will prevent the wax from melting or becoming discolored.

  5. Keep the wax pool clean: After extinguishing the candle, remove any debris or wick trimmings from the wax pool before lighting the candle again. This will prevent the wick from getting clogged and ensure that the candle burns evenly.

  6. Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.

By following these candle care tips, you can enjoy your candles safely and get the most out of their burn time. With proper care, your candles will last longer and provide a beautiful ambiance in your home. Remember to always practice caution and safety when enjoying candles.
