Tips for fragrance care: How to extend the life of your scented candles

Scented candles are not only a source of pleasant fragrances, but also a wonderful way to create a relaxing atmosphere. However, to get the most out of your scented candles, it is important to care for and store them properly. In this article, we will give you some valuable tips on how to extend the life of your scented candles and maintain the best possible fragrance quality.

1. Choosing the right place for storage

The first step to proper care is choosing the right place to store your scented candles. Make sure the place is cool, dry, and out of direct sunlight. Heat and sunlight can cause the candles to melt or fade, which can affect the scent quality.

2. Avoid drafts and moisture

Drafts and moisture can also cause your scented candles to burn faster or lose their scent intensity. Therefore, store your candles in a place free from drafts and moisture to maintain their quality.

3. Observe the correct burning time

When lighting your scented candles, be sure to follow the recommended burn time. A burn time that is too short can result in the candle not burning evenly and creating a so-called "tunnel", while a burn time that is too long can reduce the scent intensity. Be sure to let the candle burn until the surface is completely melted each time to ensure an even burn.

4. Trim the wick before lighting

Before lighting your scented candle, it is important to trim the wick to a length of about 5 millimeters. A long wick can cause the candle to produce soot or burn unevenly. By trimming the wick regularly, you can ensure clean and efficient burning and extend the life of your candle.

5. Pay attention to the quality of the candle

Finally, it is important to pay attention to the quality of the scented candle. High-quality candles made from natural waxes and high-quality fragrance oils tend to burn longer and more evenly and have a more intense scent release. Invest in high-quality candles to get the best scent experience and extend the life of your candles.
