Pay attention to these when you using scented candles in first time

Candles are a daily necessity. The aroma candles can bring people a pleasant spiritual feeling, but many people only focus on the “purchase” of scented candles but ingore “how to use”!

Today Let we talk about how to use the scented candles .

1. Before lighting it, always cut the wick

Before lighting the candle each time, the candle wick needs to be trimmed. The length of wick around 0.5-0.8cm is the most suitable. When trimmed wick should be tightly twisted with your fingers. This is to make the candle burn evenly and avoid the candle wick being too long and the wick slits producing black smoke problem.

2. Avoid memory rings

Did you realise the deep rings around your candle wick? Or when it burns, the melted wax seems to just pool around that rin and the edges around the candle will not melt? That’s a memory ring. To avoid that, burning your candle for at lease four hours in the first time. Four hours of burning will liquify the entire surface of the candle, so a memory ring will not form. Otherwise, it will just keep burning around that small circle forming a tunnel down, then the rest of your scented candle residue around will go to waste.

3.Dip wicks to extinguish the flame

Extinguish candles, do not blow them out at will. It is easy to produce soot and odor. You can choose a professional candle extinguishing tool or a candle cover.

4. Candle Storage

Candles should be stored in a cool, dark and dry place, away from electrical appliances, stoves, heat sources and other flammable objects. Excessive temperature or sunlight will cause the surface of the candle to melt.

When not in use, scented candles need to be covered with a lid to prevent essential oils from evaporating and to avoid dust. Generally speaking, aromatherapy candles are recommended to be lit within half a year to one year, so as to avoid the volatilization of essential oils for too long and affect the fragrance effect.

 

5.Safe use of candles tips

  • Do not leave the candle lit unattended to avoid accidents
  • Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets
  • After the candle is burned, the  container will become hot, do not place it directly on the furniture. You can put coasters or trays to insulate.
  • Scented candles are not recommended for pregnant women and infants at home.
