5 Ways to Take Care of Your Candles

Updated: Dec 6, 2022

Soy candles are all the rage these days, and for good reason! Not only are they eco-friendly and renewable, but they also burn clean and long-lasting. But even the best soy candles need a little TLC to keep them looking and smelling their best. Here are five easy ways to take care of your soy candles:

  1. Trim the wick before lighting. A wick that is too long can cause your candle to burn unevenly and produce soot. Use a wick trimmer or scissors to trim the wick to about ¼ inch before lighting.

  2. Burn for at least two hours at a time. Soy candles need to be burned for a longer period of time to create a full melt pool, which will help them burn evenly and last longer. So don't be afraid to let your soy candle burn for a while!

  3. Keep the candle away from drafts. Drafts can cause your candle to burn unevenly and produce soot. To prevent this, keep your soy candle away from windows, fans, and air vents.

  4. Avoid burning your candle all the way down. Soy candles have a "memory," which means that if you burn them all the way down, they will only burn down to that level next time. To avoid this, extinguish your candle before it reaches the bottom of the jar.

  5. Reuse the jar. When your candle is finished, clean out the jar and refill it with new soy wax and a new wick. This will save you money and reduce waste. Plus, you'll get to enjoy your favorite candle all over again!

Taking good care of your soy candles will help them last longer and burn more efficiently. So don't be afraid to pamper your soy candles a little – they'll thank you for it!
