Candles have an incredible power to transform our spaces, infusing them with warmth, tranquility, and captivating fragrances. To make the most of your candle experience, it's vital to show them a little TLC. In this blog, we'll delve into the world of candle care and uncover why it's crucial to follow some simple steps. So grab your favourite beverage, settle in, and let's explore how to keep your OLOR candles burning beautifully!

1. The Art of Burning:

Burning your candle for the right amount of time is key to achieving an even burn and maximizing its lifespan. Light it up for a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 4 hours (3 hours for travel candles). This allows the wax to melt evenly and prevents tunneling, ensuring you enjoy every last drop of fragrance goodness.

2. Trim for Success:

Just like giving your hair a trim, trimming the wick of your candle is a game-changer. Before each use, make sure to trim the wick to approximately 5mm. This simple step helps maintain a steady flame and prevents excessive smoking or flickering. It's like giving your candle its very own spa treatment!

3. Snuff Out the Splatter:

We've all experienced those dreaded moments when hot wax splatters everywhere, leaving a trail of mess behind. Fear not! Safely extinguish your candle using a snuffer. Not only does this prevent any wax-related accidents, but it also adds a touch of elegance to your candle ritual.

CAUTION: Safety First!

a. Never Leave Unattended:

While candles create a cosy atmosphere, safety should always be the top priority. Never leave a burning candle unattended. It's better to be safe than sorry, so always extinguish your candle before leaving the room.

b. Keep Out of Reach:

Children and pets are curious creatures, and candles might pique their interest. Keep your candles out of their reach to avoid any accidents or mishaps. Safety and peace of mind go hand in hand!

c. Mind the Gap:

To prevent any unintended sparks or hazards, make sure to leave at least 10cm of space between candles. This allows them to breathe and ensures that they don't interfere with each other's glow.

d. Fire-Free Zone:

Candles should always be burned on a stable surface, away from anything flammable. Ensure they are not placed near curtains, books, or any other objects that could catch fire. Safety and style can coexist harmoniously!

e. The Final Farewell:

Bid farewell to your candle when the wax level is less than 15mm. It's important not to relight it at this point, as it can cause overheating or damage to the jar. Instead, let it gracefully retire and choose a new OLOR creation to continue filling your space with blissful aromas.
