Have you ever wondered how to make your fancy candles last longer and keep them looking and smelling amazing? Taking care of your luxury candles can significantly prolong their lifespan and maintain their quality. Whether you treat yourself to a luxurious or received a special candle as a gift, here are some candle care tips to help you get the most out of your luxurious investment.


Trim the Wick: Before lighting your candle each time, trim the wick to about ¼ inch. This helps prevent smoking and ensures a clean, even burn.

Allow the Wax Pool to Reach the Edges: When you first light your candle, allow it to burn long enough for the wax pool to reach the edges of the container. This prevents tunneling and ensures that the candle burns evenly throughout its life.

Avoid Drafts: Place your candle away from drafts, as they can cause uneven burning, smoking, and even extinguishing of the flame.

Burn in Intervals: Avoid burning your candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Burning for extended periods can cause the wick to become too long and may result in smoking or uneven burning.

Re-center the Wick: If you notice the wick drifting off-center while burning, gently reposition it to the center of the candle while the wax is still molten. This helps ensure an even burn and prevents the candle from burning unevenly.

Use a Snuffer: Instead of blowing out the candle, use a candle snuffer to extinguish the flame. This helps prevent hot wax from splattering and keeps the wick centered for the next burn.

Keep the Wax Clean: Remove any debris or wick trimmings from the wax pool to prevent them from catching fire or affecting the quality of the burn.

Store Properly: When not in use, store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This helps preserve the scent and prevents the wax from melting or becoming discolored.

Rotate Candles: If you have multiple candles, rotate their use to ensure they all get burned evenly and none of them are neglected for too long.

Repurpose the Container: Once the candle has burned down, consider repurposing the container for other uses, such as storing small items or as a decorative holder for other candles.

By following these tips, you can make the most of your art candles and enjoy their ambiance and fragrance for longer periods.
