Some tips to enjoy your Scented Candles
I was reading an article in Better Homes and Gardens yesterday about planting bulbs in fall to bloom next spring. They talked about how using the right tools and techniques would pay off next spring with a beautiful display of flowers! As I read the article it reminded me that the same thing is true for scented candles. With a little know-how and planning you can get the maximum enjoyment from your candles. So here’s my short list of things to do for successful candle burning.
- Analyze your space – Big room or small room? This will influence the size of candle or the number of candles you want to purchase.
- Trim your wick – Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4″ to 1/2″. This allows the candle to burn more evenly and the greatest amount of fragrance to be released into the air. If you have a jar candle that has burned down part of the way a wick trimmer will come in handy!
- Have “time to burn” – More than expression. Each time you burn your candle try to allow the wax to melt all the way to the edge of the candle container. This allows the candle to burn more evenly. This is especially important the first time you burn your candle.
- Stay Safe! – A small flame can become a big flame if you’re not careful. Try to find a spot that is away from other flammable items and where it won’t be disturbed. Find more candle safety tips here.
I hope these few things will help you get more enjoyment from your scented candles. And if you don’t want to wait until spring to smell those daffodils – no problem you can order a Daffodil Scented Candle today!
