How to Get the Most Out of Your Luxury Candle

How to get the most out of your luxury candle. We love our candles here at THMSCo. That’s why we like to make sure they last long as long as possible. So we’re always looking for new ways to help them stand the burning test of time. Here are our 2 favourite tips to keep your candles burning longer.

  1. Avoid tunnelling:
    People tell us all the time that they love their new candle so much that they try to save it – only burning it for a few hours when they use it first. The thing is, your candle needs to melt all the way out, or you are left with a dipped area once you blow it out. Then when you relight it, the candle will simply burn down that tunnel. So next time, let it burn until the wax has melted evenly across the top - right to the sides, now! This gives your candle a longer life which of course means less waste. It's a win / win.

  2. Keep the wick trim:
    Before your light your candle, trim the wick to an 1/8 of an inch. This prevents the sides of the glass from blackening after it’s been burning for a few hours – which can also spread to your walls etc. Be carefull not to on’t trim it too short, or the flame will be too short to burn all the wax.

Now it’s just a case of picking your favourite scent.
