Efficient burning means flame is not flickering, teardrop-shaped, and upright. Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. These signs indicate the candle is not burning properly, and the flame isn't controlled. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before re-lighting.
"It is also essential candles are not burnt when there is 10mm of wax or less remaining in the jar," says Claire. "Although it is tempting to continue burning your candle until the wax is gone, we strongly advise against this as the flame needs a solid base of wax to avoid overheating the glass jar."
YOUR SCENT THROW
Open windows and doors will disperse scent and lessen the concentration. For maximum fragrance
keep windows and doors closed and burn in the desired space for 30 mins before entering.
Always store your candles in a cool, dark, and dry place. Scented candles also look great stored under a glass cloche, which also protects from dust.
Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlight.
You can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.
