You could say that I'm a little bit of a candle connoisseur. I've always been obsessed with scent and use fragrance in my home and businesses. When you've been manufacturing selling candles for almost a decade, you learn a few tricks. These 5 candle burning tips will extend the life of your Thomas Blonde candles, prevent unsightly soot, and tunneling.
Tip #1: The First Burn
Always allow at least 45 mins- one hour to let the candle fully melt across the top. This is the most important process and determines the quality and life of the candle and eliminates tunneling of the candle.
Tip #2: Preventing Tunneling
Tunneling is when the wick burns straight down the center of a candle without creating a full melt pool. This typically happens when you don't allow the candle to properly burn the first burning session. We recommend always allowing the candle to fully melt across the top each burn session.
Tip #3: Trim Your Wick
Each time you want to burn your candle, start by trimming the wick to between 1/8 and 1/4 inches long. You can use scissors, nail clipper or a Candle Wick Trimmer, but no matter what you do, always trim your wicks. Why? First, trimmed wicks will give you a cleaner, brighter burn. Untrimmed wicks are a lot more likely to take on a weird mushroom type shape, which dulls and obscures the flame.
Tip #4: Keep The Flame Away From Moving Air
Do your best to keep your burning candle away from fans, air conditioners, open windows, or heavily trafficked areas where people walk back and forth a lot. Moving air can disturb the flame, leading to even more unsightly black marks on the glass.
Tip #5: Distinguishing The Candle:
Never Blow out the candle, always dip the wick in the melted wax to burn out. This will seal the wick for the next burning session.
