5 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Wholesale Beeswax Candles
Whether you purchase Wholesale Beeswax Candles or just a handful of candles per year, for many candle enthusiasts like you, candles are an essential item in your home. From special occasion decorations to everyday air quality improvements and odor eliminators, it doesn’t matter how you choose to utilize beeswax candles; you always want to get the most out of each one. In order to ensure you have a satisfactory experience with your candle burning, you should always follow these tips and guidelines:
Use Proper Burning Techniques
One of the easiest ways to waste a chunk of your candle is by not following the proper procedures for burning your candles. For example, different styles of candles require different burning methods. For example, a 3-wick candle should always burn with every wick lit, while votives demand a proper, heat-resistant holder to burn completely. Other helpful tips for burning your beeswax candles include:
• Always trim your wick to 1/4” or less before you light your candle to prevent soot buildup.
• Avoid burning candles near air currents, drafts, or vents to prevent issues with excessive dripping, uneven burning, smoking, or soot generation.
• Follow recommendations for your specific candle’s burn time.
• Use a candlesnuffer or wick dipper to extinguish your candles instead of blowing them out.
• Extinguish the flame of the candle if it repeatedly flickers or becomes too large. Then, let the candle cool, trim down the wick, and check for unwanted air currents before you re-light your candle.
• If you have difficulties keeping the wick lit, there are generally two main issues – either the wick isn’t big enough, or the wick is too short. Remember: Beeswax candles contain thicker wicks than other candle types because they require a larger flame to melt the wax. To add to the length of your wick, light the candle around the base of the wick to help start the wax flow.
Buy In Bulk
If you know you will use a greater number of candles, a great way to get the most out of your money is to buy your candles in bulk. By purchasing wholesale beeswax candles, you can save on shipping costs while receiving a lower price per candle.
Make Sure to Hug Your Candles
At times it is necessary to “hug” your candles to avoid tunneling and wasting precious burning time for your candle. To do this, gently press the candle edges inwards towards the candle’s center. This technique will help encourage the beeswax candle to burn properly. Remember, only hug your candle directly after extinguishing it or very carefully while it is burning. NEVER attempt this after the candle has had time to cool off, else the wax will be too brittle.
Know How to Store Your Beeswax Candles
Beeswax candles may not go bad, but they can develop bloom (a white film or powder) when stored at lower temperatures. To store your candles properly, always wrap your candle in plastic to prevent dirt, dust, fuzz, or other small particles from accumulating on your candle. Once covered, place your candles in a cool, dry place. Remember: when storing your candle, if the area is too warm, the wax can soften and cause the plastic wrap to stick or embed into the wax.
Recycle Your Leftovers
Like with any product, there are plenty of ways to put your beeswax candle stubs and scraps to good use. From reusing your beeswax in alternate recipes (such as lip balm, hand lotion, or wood furniture polish) to beeswax recycling programs (where you donate your leftover scraps to make new products), there are plenty of opportunities to recycle your scraps.
