Know how to look after your Candle

To ensure you get the most out of your candle you should know the following

 

*When lighting your candle for the first time, you need to allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the Jar this could take an hour or more so burn it at a time where you wont have to leave the house. If you dont do this you will create a pool in the candle which leads to alot of wastage of wax.

 

*Trim the wick  to about 6-8mm before each burn, this will ensure long lasting burn and creates a bigger flame therfore more scent.

 

*Extinguish your candle by simply placing the jar lid over the candle.

 

*Do not leave your candle in direct sunlight as this will create a yellowing of the candle wax.. it will not effect the candle only its appearance.

 

*Place your candle in the correct size room, People often think that their candle isnt strong enough but it could be that your rooms size is far too big for that size of a candle, Medium candles for medium bedrooms or lounge and large for open kitchens/living space.
