How to maximize burn time and scent throw of your soy wax candle:
Burning candles can often require more effort than one would realize. BUT if you have the time to do a few things you can really get the most out of your soy wax candle.
The first and probably most cliché of burning tips is to make sure that your wick is around ¼ inch in length. This is very important, and scissors are quick and easy help.
Second, is to make sure you have enough time to let the burning wick work on its melt pool. It helps to let the wax melt out completely to the edges of the container forming a liquid wax puddle. If you notice your wick leaning to one side, a good tip is to rotate your candle 180 degrees (but be careful not to splash wax!)
Once this melt pool has occurred (and our motto is ‘an hour an inch is a cinch’) you can snuff or blow out the flame.
This lets the melt pool release off the yummy essential oils so you can reap the benefits of true aromatherapy.
Once the wax solidifies again, you just trim your wick and start over.
Remember, it is good to make sure you never burn your candle in a draft, this makes the flame rage, often to one side creating an uneven burn AND never leave your candle unattended!

Aromatherapy arrived in modern society with a bang! In 1910, French cosmetic chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse accidentally set himself on fire after an explosion in his lab. His hands began to develop gas gangrene, which he successfully healed with lavender essential oil. He shared his findings with his medical doctor friends and the modern study and clinical use of essential oils and aromatherapy was born!
