4 Tips To Burn A Candle Evenly

September 15, 2019

Candles burning.

I think you should know that I'm a bit OCD when it comes to my scented candles burning evenly. No expense is spared when it comes to ingredients, so here's how to get the most out of Petits Rituels candles:

  1. Burn them at least 3 hours the first time to avoid the candle from tunneling or until the melted wax has reached or almost reached the edge of the glass. 
  2. Each time you light your candle again, trim the wick by removing the carbon build up using a tissue.
  3. When your candle is burning, if the tip of the wick always bends towards one side, readjust the wick so that it distributes the heat at the centre of the glass.
  4. Avoid drafty areas because it will cause tunneling which leads to unused wax.
