7 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Scented Candle

7 Tips Om Het Meeste Uit Jouw Geurkaars Te Halen

Today we're going to talk about the 7 must-know tips to get the most out of your scented candle with natural sunflower wax. We dive into the subtle art of candle burning. From the first lighting to the last flickering flame, every step is crucial to creating an unforgettable fragrance experience in your home.

Whether you're a seasoned candle lover or just starting to explore the world of scented candles, these tips will help you get the most out of your candle every time. Let's discover together the secrets of burning a scented candle perfectly!

1. The Crucial First Brand

Did you know that your scented candle has a memory? The way the candle burns the first time determines how it will perform in the future. Make sure the candle burns long enough, ideally 2-3 hours, for the wax to melt evenly to the edges of the holder. This prevents 'tunneling' and ensures maximum scent distribution.

2. Trim the Wick Regularly

A wick that is too long can lead to an uneven burn, causing the candle to burn out faster and produce more soot. It is essential to trim the wick to approximately 6mm before each use for an optimal burning experience.

Tip : Invest in a good wick trimmer for accurate and easy trimming (scissors can also be used of course)

3. Prevention and Treatment of Black Soot Formation

If you notice black soot, it is a sign that the wick needs to be trimmed or the candle has been burning too long. Wipe the holder clean with a damp cloth and trim the wick correctly before relighting the candle.

4. The Right Way to Extinguish Your Candle

Always use a candle snuffer or wick immerser. This prevents hot wax from splashing and extends the life of the wick.

Tip : If you don't have a candle extinguisher on hand, you can use a metal spoon to gently extinguish the flame.

5. Avoid Burning to the Bottom

It is not safe to burn the candle all the way to the bottom as this can overheat the holder. Stop burning when there is about 1cm of wax left. Consider using a candle warmer to use up the remaining wax without lighting the wick.

6. Store your scented candle properly

Store your candles in a cool, dry place, away from light and heat sources. This not only helps retain the scent, but also prevents the wax from melting or discoloring. If you keep multiple candles, try to separate them to prevent scent transfer.

7. Choose the Right Candle Size for Your Space

A large candle with multiple wicks is ideal for a larger room, while smaller candles are better suited to smaller rooms. This ensures the right scent intensity and atmosphere in every room. You can of course also use several small candles to spread the scent as much as possible.

A Bonus Tip for Tunneling

A very simple solution to tunnel formation is to wrap the top of your candle with aluminum foil. You do this by forming a crater with aluminum, with the aim of spreading the heat evenly. You can also use a candle warmer or a wide lamp to spread the heat.

By following these 7 tips and investing in a few simple tools, you can not only extend the life of your scented candles, but also create an atmosphere of calm and harmony in your space. And let's face it, isn't that what scented candles are all about?
