How can you make my candles last longer?

Having scented candles London at your home can not only remove the bad odour but can also add to your happiness by giving you a feel-good experience of different aromas suited to your preference.

Avoid burning new candles for a short time.

The first lighting of the candles, let it burn till it forms a complete pool of melted wax across the surface of the container. On the other hand, if you burn it for a few minutes, then the wax pool may not go beyondthe circumference of the previous burn and at next burn, the candle will form a hole in the middle sinking the wick deeper and deeper into the candle. As a result, the wax on the side won’t burn and this will shorten the life of your candle.

Trim long or Crocked Wicks

As long and crooked wicks can lead to uneven burning resulting in a burst of high flame and smokes, you should always trim your wicks. A trimmed wick will also ensure that you get a nice bright flame.

For best burning try to keep the weeks about one fourth in high and lower or higher than this as both can disrupt the candles normal burning and shorten its life.

Don’t Put Burning Candles in the Path of Blowing Air

Blowing air from fans, vents and other sources can cause candles to burn unevenly or produce smoke leaving messy black stains in the container. Plus blowing air current can reduce the candle life by quickening the burning process.

Don’t Let Any Debris to Accumulate in the Wax pool

If any debris such as charred wicks or used matches accumulates in the candle pool, it will mess up the chemistry of the candle and may lead to uneven burning and interfere with how it smells. So always try to keep the candle pool clean of any debris.

Let The Candle Completely Cool down before the next lighting.

You should wait for about two hours to let the candle completely cool down both for your safety and the candle optimum functioning as trimming the wick is my easier when the wax pool has cooled down and solidifies. You can get your fingers burned if you drive in for a week before it has cooled. 

Summing up, it can be said that the steps above will not only make your candles longer-lasting but also safeguard your safety.
