Tip-sy Tuesday: Candle Edition 🕯😄 Jenna here, ready to give you some tips for getting the most out of your candle purchases ❤️🕯😊
BURN LONG ENOUGH…
Before using a snuffer, make sure the candle pools entirely across the top. If not, it can cause tunneling and wax will end up being wasted around the inside edge of the candle.
Here's a picture of candles before they pool across completely and after. 🕯
The other tip that goes along with burning your candle long enough is...
…DON’T BURN TOO LONG!
Don’t burn a candle for more than 4 hours at a time. After 4 hours, the candle can become too hot and will begin to evaporate fragrance oil and burn off quicker. It’s recommended to burn in 2 to 3 hour increments.
If your candle gets too hot, depending the candle, the wax can completely liquefy; and if that happens, the glue holding the wick can release and move across the bottom of the container. If that happens, the flame can directly touch the glass or bowl and crack it or burn it. This is why you should stop burning a candle once 1/2 inch of wax remains at the bottom of the jar. ***This is especially important with dough bowls.
Let’s be honest, sometimes 4 hours just isn’t long enough. I get it. That's why I recommend keeping multiple candles on-hand so you can rotate through them when you want to continue burning candles longer than 4 hours. This will allow you to either rotate fragrances or always have an extra of your #1 favorite on-hand. 🥰🕯❤️
