Expert light burning requires etiquette - an exact art of what, when and how.

Careless scented candle maintenance can be a soothing wick that burns more glass than wax.

The importance of choosing the right scent for the right room, the lid to the content of the scented candle is of utmost importance and here are some simple instructions on how to burn your scented candle properly.

Always trim the wick before turning on your scented candle

The length of the wick is a type of variable that can quickly shorten the life of your light. Especially with larger light, which gives more surface area of ​​wax to melt, a shorter length will ensure a more even burning. Trim it just before burning it every time you use it. When it comes to length, many people say that the optimal length should be 6 mm but it may be a little too short. The risk is that the wick can "drown" and extinguish in molten wax. One centimeter is good. You can use a special wick trimmer or just a small pair of scissors.

Think about the location of your scented candle

A lighted scented candle spreads such well-being and wherever you set it matters. For example, scented candles should never be lit at the dining table. Unless you have designed your entire meal to be customized and able to enjoy that scent, it is not appropriate during a meal. A dinner with candles should only be done using scent-free candles for the sake of atmosphere and let the delicious scents of the food take over.

Things like a TV room or for reading become more welcome with some masculine notes like wood, leather and cashmere. "It's more of a cozy, old-fashioned smell. Black Cederwood is a perfect light with extra long burning time of 55+ h

 Bathrooms and offices share olfactory requirements for cool, bright scents that smell clean and keep you awake. A lovely scent of pomegranate fits in very well in the office. Pomegranade from Durance is perfect and very beautiful in addition.

To the bedroom you should not have any unpleasant smells. Lemongrass will not help you sleep without a little softer notes like lavender scented candles, etc., while Vanilla is nice to get a more feminine side of the room or job and flowers send an inviting message in the entrances, "but they are beautiful, were like preferably."

When the scent light is on

"When you burn a candle, and especially the first time you burn it, you want to burn it for about two hours or more, depending on the light size. The idea here is that the entire top layer is melted before you turn it off. burn evenly so that it will not create these bulges in the wax, which can be deepened as well, creating a void in the scent light and unnecessarily ruining the life of it.

Switch off gently

Splashes of wax are often the result of blowing out a candle with too much force for several weeks. We recommend gently blowing the wick and immediately cover the extinguished scented candle with a lid. Lids are generally very good for your scented candles. A lid will keep dust and dirt from settling on your candle wax - just additional insurance that you and your candle enjoy wishing for a long, beautiful life together.
