How to Care for Your Candles


Good candles are a beautiful and cozy way to add a touch of warmth to your home. Nothing is more inviting than a good scented candle! But in order to enjoy your candles for years to come, it's important to care for them properly. Here are a few tips we've learned from selling candles like Lafco and Votivo over the years at Perch Home.


  Trim the wick before each use. This will help to prevent the wick from smoking and create a more even burn.

  Burn the candle for at least two hours the first time you light it. This will allow the wax to melt all the way to the edges of the jar, preventing tunneling.

  Never burn a candle for more than four hours at a time. This can shorten the life of the candle and create a fire hazard.

  Keep candles away from drafts and flammable objects.

  Extinguish candles when they're down to one inch of wax.

  Store candles in a cool, dry place.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your candles looking and smelling their best for years to come.


Here are some additional tips for caring for your candles:


  Use a candle warmer instead of burning a candle directly. This will help to extend the life of the candle and prevent it from getting too hot.

  Clean the candle jar after each use. This will help to prevent the build-up of soot and wax.

  Don't move a burning candle. This can cause the wax to pool unevenly and create a fire hazard.

  Never leave a burning candle unattended.

  Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.

By following these suggestions, you can enjoy your candles safely!
