This report provides advice on taking advantage of your scented candles. Well help is at hand. Firstly, you can’t make a silk purse from a pig’s ear or make gold out of lead. This applies equally well to scented candles. Buy the very best you can afford or want to spend. A word of caution here, not all candles are made equal. Some cost an absolute fortune only to burn badly or give off little discernible odor. My advice here would be to find quality where you can. Handmade candles usually provide a good starting point. The mass produced candles like Yankee candles etc., don’t get this sort of therapy and are churned out by machines in their thousands. My advice is to attempt and obtain those candles that someone has cared about when creating them.
If it is too long, trim it with a pair of scissors. If it is too short, use a tea spoon and remove a layer of the wax around the wick. This is easily achieved with soy candles that are soft but somewhat trickier with paraffin candles that are harder. Place the candle on a heat resistant surface and light it. Unfortunately, to take advantage of your candle, you want to look after it from time to time. The first burn is vital. Allow the candle melt across the complete diameter of the jar for container candles that covers over 90 percent of quality scented candles. Soy candles will melt easily across the complete width of this jar, with paraffin candles; it all depends on the quality of how it is made and the balance of wick size to the size of the jar. Enjoy the fragrance and the homely ambiance you receive from your candle.
Well not quite. After your first burn and you have extinguished your candle, then leave it to cool completely. Trim the back again, always to approximately 5mm 1/4 of an inch. And light again. As before, let the candle burn until the entire width of the jar has melted. This procedure needs to be repeated over and over again to the life span of the candle. Trim, burn, cool, trim, burn cool etc. For smaller candles, the candle might require putting out after an hour or so, so that you may ret rim the wick. Bigger candles will burn off happily for several hours between wick trims. Watch the candle and you will discover how long you can burn until you want to trim the wick. It really is easy to get the most out of a quality scented Lantercove so invest in quality and look after your purchase and it will reward you time and time again.
