Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to about ¼ inch. A longer wick can cause the candle to burn too quickly, which may result in uneven melting and potential safety hazards.
Just a tip: A shorter wick will also reduce the amount of smoke and soot that the candle produces.
Candles should be placed in an area where they are not exposed to drafts, such as near windows, fans, or air conditioning vents. Drafts can cause the candle to burn unevenly and may also cause the flame to flicker and potentially go out.
It's important to burn your candle for the appropriate amount of time each time you light it.
For example, if you have a small candle, you should only burn it for about an hour or two at a time, while larger candles can be burned for up to four hours at a time.
Don’t forget to to wait until the wax it’s all melted on the top, this will help to prevent the wax from tunneling, which is when the candle burns down the center and leaves a ring of wax around the edges.
Extinguishing a candle with water or blowing it out can cause hot wax to splatter and potentially cause burns or damage to your home. Instead, use a candle snuffer to gently extinguish the flame, which will also help to prevent smoke and soot.
