How To Get The Most Out Of Your Scented Candle?
Candles are one of the oldest and easiest methods of creating a warm or romantic ambience in the home. Although historically used for creating light and timekeeping, candles have become an essential part of creating an appeasing atmosphere. They can be lighted instantly and require minimum effort to maintain, they can transform a room within seconds with their beautiful fragrances and wonderful designs.
We believe a house isn’t a home until it is able to fulfil your every sense, and candles are an inexpensive and sensible way to complete your home.
Scented candles can range from just £5 to hundreds of pounds, based on the quality of the materials as well as the quality of the fragrance and the amount of fragrance used. But however much you choose to spend every candle is just as easy to set up and maintain as the last. However there are a few things you should be careful of, in order to get the most out of your scented candle.
How To Increase The Life Of Your Scented Candle?
Although everyone knows how to light a candle, there are a few rules every candle user should abide by, not only to stay safe, but also get the most from their candle.
Firstly you want to ensure a smoke free candle; it can smell unpleasant and totally wreck the ambience you intended to create. The best way to do this is to keep your candle away from drafts and ensure the wick is trimmed to 7mm. The wick can also build up a carbon deposit on the tip and this should always be removed, however this usually only occurs when the wick need to be trimmed.
You must also make sure to leave the candle alight long enough for the pool of melted wax to reach the edge of the candle. This will prevent tunnelling and ensure you don’t waste the wax around the outside edge of your candle.
You also want to keep the wick centred to allow the wax to melt evenly, again preventing wastage.
And finally always be careful when using your candle, keep the flame away from flammable materials, keep the candle away from children or pets and never leave a candle unattended. A candle flame burns at over 1000°C so please be very careful.
