Is there a way to make my candles last longer? I like to get the most bang for my buck lol!
Jade: Hey Emmy!
I've definitely got some candle burning tips for you so that you get the most out of your candle!
1. Burn time - Each time you light your candle it is best to burn it long enough that the entire top layer of wax melts all the way to the edges. This is important because otherwise tunneling may occur and that'll just leave a bunch of wax (which is the fuel for your flame) up the sides of your candle.
2. Trim yo' wicks! - Trimming your candle wick to about 1/4" before each burn will help keep your candle flame from burning too hot. You'll know if it's burning too hot if the flame is quite large and dancing about. When the flame burns really hot you're using up more wax (aka - flame fuel) faster. If your flame gets out of control mid-burn just put it out, wait a second for it to cool a bit, very carefully trim the wick, relight, and continue to enjoy
3. Avoid drafts - place your candle somewhere where it can burn unencumbered by any breeze or too much air movement. Drafts can cause an uneven burn which can lead to the tunneling I mentioned above and no one wants that!
I hope these tips help you make the most of your Jackpot Candles! Thanks for the great question, Emmy!
