How to care for your candles and make them last longer - ARTIS:MV

Hey candle-lovers! If you're like me, you know there's nothing better than lighting a candle and letting its warm glow and cozy scent fill your home. But candles can be pricey, so it's important to take good care of them to get the most bang for your buck. Here are some tips to help you care for your candles and make them last longer:

  1. Trim the wick: Before you light your candle, give it a little trim! Cut the wick down to about a quarter inch to help it burn evenly and prevent too much smoke.

  2. Burn for the right amount of time: Let your candle burn for long enough to melt the wax evenly across the surface. A good rule of thumb is to let it burn for about an hour for each inch of diameter. This way, your candle will burn evenly and last longer.

  3. Keep away from drafts: Nobody likes a draft, and neither do candles! Keep your candles on a stable surface away from any drafts or breezes. This will help them burn evenly and produce less smoke.

  4. Use a candle snuffer: When you're done with your candle, give it a little snuff. Using a candle snuffer will prevent excess smoke and make sure the wick is properly extinguished.

  5. Store properly: If you need to store your candles, make sure to do it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. This will help keep the wax from melting or changing color.

By taking good care of your candles, you'll be able to enjoy them for longer and save some money in the process. So go ahead and light up that candle, relax, and enjoy its cozy glow for as long as possible!
