1. Trim the Candlewick Before You Burn The Candle
Each time before lighting the candle, you need to trim the candlewick and leave the length of 5-7 mm long as the most suitable. Trimming the wick can make the candle last longer. Moreover, excessively long wicks cause nasty smoky stains that end up on your glass jar candles.
Why before burning the candle? Since the candle is not completely solidified when you trim the wick, the carbon head accumulated at the top of the wick might fall into the wax pool, which will affect the burning shape of the candle.
2. Say No To the Memory Ring
The first time you burn the candle, you need to make sure to wait until the wax pool liquefies to the edge of the glass. Wax has a "burning memory". Therefore, when they are ignited for the first time, they should be burned for at least 3-4 hours, and uniformly burn the surface layer of wax until it melts completely to avoid burning the memory ring's appearance in the middle of the candle. Otherwise, it will continue to burn along the memory ring, which will affect the use and appearance of the candle. After that, the candle will only be limited to burning around the wick. The size of the wax pool at the first burning determines the life of your scented candle.
