Candle Care and Safety
Hey Candle Lover,
Want to know how to keep your candles burning longer and smoother? Well, your answers are here! In this post, I will be giving tips on how to keep your candles going longer and how to properly care for them. The first tip is to TRIM YOUR WICKS!! I know you always hear candle makers say that and it is not just so you can buy a wick trimmer with your next order. We really want you to trim those wicks because that is the most important factor in preserving your candle for as long as possible. By trimming the wick of your candle before each burn you are allowing that wick to burn smoothly because you removed that burnt mushroom-looking tip. The second tip is to use tools like a candle snuffer and wick dipper to extinguish the flame of your candle.

Blowing out your candle may seem fine but you could blow hot wax on yourself or possibly cause a fire if things are too close to your candle as your blowing. These tools are super helpful and most of the time pretty cheap, I have seen some at dollar tree and they work just fine.
The third tip is to keep your lit candles in an area that has no breeze and is away from anything flammable. You want to keep your candle lit so don’t put it by an open window or by the moving fan. Don’t put your lit candle by your hanging paper decorations or your plastic water bottle. Keep your candles in a safe place so you can continue to enjoy them.
These were just a few tips to get you started on your path to properly care for your candles. I hope you learned something new and helpful. As always if you made it this far I appreciate you and I hope you keep reading in the future. Thank You!
