How to burn your candle correctly

How many of you thought that a candle is just a candle? You light it up and thats it.. But no! Surprised? Believe me I didn't even imagine that there is a right and wrong way to burn na candle before I started my research about candles! Get a pen and a paper and take notes.

To begin with, candles have memory! How can this be a real thing? Yes they do. The purpose of our recommendation on our candle are card to burn your candles until you have a full melt pool before extinguish it is that. If you extinguish it before it creates a full melt pool, at the next burn, it will burn at the exact same point as it did before, causing a tunnel effect. It takes about 2-4 hours to reach a full melt pool.

Additionally, candles don't supposed to produce smoke when they are burning. If you see that your candle producing smoke, extinguish it, let it cool down and then trim the wick. Don't forget to trim the wick before you light up your candle.

Moreover, when you’re ready to extinguish a candle flame, you’ve got a few options: blow it out (duh!). #not! Instead use a candle snuffer or a wick dipper.

A candle snuffer and wick dipper essentially have the same function actually, to extinguish the flame without the wick smoking. With a wick dipper, use the tool to push the wick into the hot wax pool then lift it out of the wax for the next burn. With a candle snuffer, place the bell of the snuffer over the flame to exhaust its supply of carbon and hydrogen thus extinguishing it.
