Thou Shall Not Commit These Sins: 3. Thou shall not overindulge thy candle – four hours at a time

Hey there, candle lover! We need to talk about a serious topic that's near and dear to our hearts (and noses) - candle care! At, we're all about helping you get the most out of your candles while keeping things safe and enjoyable. So, let's dive into the third commandment of candle care: "Thou shall not overindulge thy candle – four hours at a time is plenty." 🕯️😇

We know it's tempting to let your favorite candle burn all night long, filling your home with its heavenly scent. But hold on, girl! Here's why you should resist the urge to overindulge and stick to burning your candle for four hours at a time:

🔥 Safety first!

Candles are open flames, and safety always comes first. Never leave your candle unattended for long periods of time, especially when you're asleep or away from home. By following the four-hour burn time rule, you can ensure that you're practicing safe candle usage and keeping your home cozy and safe.

🕯️ Quality over quantity.

We know you want your candles to last as long as possible, and overburning can affect their performance. Extended burning can lead to uneven wax melting and tunneling, wasting precious wax and shortening your candle's overall burn time. By sticking to four hours, you can help your candle burn evenly and maximize its lifespan, so you can enjoy it for longer.

😍 Savor the scent.

We know you love the aroma of your favorite candle, and we want you to fully appreciate it! Prolonged burning can desensitize your sense of smell, making it harder to fully enjoy the scent. By limiting your burn time, you can continue to savor the full aroma of your candle with each lighting, without it becoming overwhelming.

🌍 Save the environment.

We care about our planet, and so should you! Burning candles for extended periods of time can contribute to indoor air pollution, releasing soot and other particles into the air. By limiting your burn time to four hours, you can help reduce the impact on indoor air quality and minimize the environmental footprint of your candle usage, making a small but meaningful contribution to our planet.

So, remember, darling, thou shall not overindulge thy candle. Four hours at a time is plenty! Practice safe candle usage, make your candle last longer, savor the scent, and be mindful of the environment. And if you're looking for high-quality, hand-poured candles to elevate your space, you know where to find them! 😉🕯️✨💕

We hope these tips help you get the most out of your candles and keep your space cozy and inviting. Stay lit, candle aficionado! 😊🔥💖
