It's a question that we always hear: how do I make my soy candle last longer? There are many ways to get your soy candle to burn for hours and hours, but it doesn't happen overnight. In this blog post, we will discuss how you can get the perfect burn from your soy candle, mainly because you're about to stock up for fall and want to keep the pumpkin scents burning for as long as possible. We don't blame you!
To get the best burn, there are a few things you need to do to ensure you're taking care of your soy candle the right way. Unfortunately, perfect burns don't happen on their own. If you want to make your candle last for hours, follow these simple steps.
To get the most out of your candle, make sure you trim the wick. The wick should always be trimmed to about 0.25 inches before each burn. This will ensure the candle is burning correctly, and you can get a nice, clean flame that won't smoke too much or go out on its own.
To make your soy candles last longer, you need to place them in an area free from drafts, so they don't burn quicker and unevenly. Currents can cause your candle to burn too quickly, and you will lose all of the wax in a matter of hours. Take a second to double-check the placement of the candle, so this doesn't happen.
Another tip is to melt at least an inch or two into the soy candle when lighting it for the first time. Why is it important to burn your candle at least an inch when lighting it for the first time ever? If you light a candle and only let it burn for five minutes or so, you're ruining the wax memory. Burn them at least an inch deep into the soy candle when lighting for the first time, at least an hour.
Your soy candles will last longer, and your favorite scents can stick around for longer by following these simple tricks. Will just a little practice, you'll be taking care of your candles like a true expert.
