7 Pro Tips for Burning a Perfect Candle at Home

Everybody likes to keep scented candles at home.

But actually, we are not using them properly. There is a perfect way to burn the candle, like this large Summer Rain Jasmine Candle, so that it lasts a long time.

You probably have at least one container candle, pillar candle, taper candle, votive, or tealight in your house, regardless of the sort of candles you purchase from the Best Online Gift Store in Kolkata.

Therefore, in this blog, we will be learning 7 pro tips for burning the perfect candle at home. So go through them carefully.


  1. The wick of the candle should be properly trimmed.

Before lighting any candle, always cut the wick to 1/8 to 1/4 inch.

Even with soy candles, which don’t emit black soot, a too-long wick will cause the flame to grow too tall, which can also cause the glass to burn and maybe break if the flame directly hits the glass. Here is when you get to use a wick trimmer.

If you don’t have a wick trimmer, you can use scissors, although once the candle has burned out, it can be difficult.


  1. The drafts should be avoided.

You may have seen the dancing flames of a candle.

Keep burning candles away from open windows and vents for heating and air conditioning. There is a draft if you see the candle’s flame flickering in any direction other than straight up. 

  1. The candle should be chilled not warm.

You should keep in mind that warm candles do not lasts long. Before lighting, cool your candle by placing it in the refrigerator for approximately an hour while it is covered in foil or cling wrap (to prevent the wick from absorbing any moisture).

  1. A long enough burn.

Make sure the candle covers the top completely before putting it out. Without it, the inside edge of the candle may tunnel and waste wax. Make sure you light pillar candles for at least one hour per inch of diameter.


Additionally, a wick size that is too tiny might result in tunneling. It will leave waste wax around the inside edge of the candle if the wick’s diameter is too small for the diameter of the candle (or the region of the candle it is intended to burn, if there are many wicks).


  1. Extinguish it properly.

You have a few alternatives for putting out a candle flame when the time comes, including blowing it out (obviously), using a candle snuffer, or using a wick dipper.

Put your index finger in front of the flame while blowing out a candle to reduce the hot wax spatter and create a ring of air around the flame.

The purpose of both a candle snuffer and a wick dipper is to put out the flame without the wick smoking. When using a wick dipper, you insert the wick into the hot wax pool and then lift it out to prepare for the subsequent burn.  


  1. Clean up the candle.

Spills can occur.

Find out what kind of wax your candle is composed of in the event of a spill. Soy wax is biodegradable and simple to clean up with soap and water, unlike paraffin wax, which may be difficult to remove. And at the KCC Gallery Store, you would get soy wax candles. So now you only need to place an order.


  1. Be Safe.

Do not forget to practice safety.

Always use a well-ventilated area while burning candles. Never place lit candles close to window coverings or other combustible materials. Keep any lighted candles away from children and animals. Place candles on coasters, plates, hurricanes, or lanterns from the Best Online Gift Store in Kolkata for extra safety and to save your home’s furniture.
