A bit more about why we chose beeswax: Beeswax burns cleaner than other types of candles, making it the more healthy choice for the lungs! When beeswax candles are burned, they release negative ions similar to an air purifier. These negative ions negate the positive charge or air contaminants such as airborne pollen, mites, dirt, dust, and other pollutants. These pollutants are either sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. Since beeswax candles reduce indoor pollutants, they can effectively reduce asthma and allergies. Beeswax candles also last longer and burn brighter than other types!
Tips to make your candles last longer:
- Wrap the wicks in aluminum foil and freeze the candle for an hour or two
- Light the candle and after the wax has pooled beneath the wick, blow it out and mix a pinch of table salt into the wax
- Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ of an inch
- Keep candle away from drafty areas such as windows or doorways
The first burn of a candle is important in setting the pace for how the candle will burn every other time that it is lit. When you light your candle for the very first time, make sure that it burns long enough to melt the wax all the way to the outer edge. This may take several hours. The general rule of thumb is to let the candle burn for approximately an hour per every inch of diameter. It's also important to not over trim the wick length every time the candle is lit. A wick that's trimmed too short will not allow the candle to burn hot enough and may cause tunneling. A wick that is not trimmed far enough could cause the candle to burn too hot and may cause smoking.
