How to Care for Your Soy Candle: Tips for Enjoying the Aromatherapy Experience with Essential Oils
Are you a candle lover who enjoys the soothing scent of essential oils? If you have a soy candle from Yougi, we want to ensure that you get the most out of your aromatherapy experience. Let's dive in and learn how to extend the life of your soy candle while enjoying in its natural scents!
Trim the Wick: Before lighting your soy candle, it's crucial to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. A longer wick can result in a larger flame, causing the candle to burn too quickly and produce more soot. Trimming the wick helps to control the burn rate and ensures a clean and even burn, extending the life of your candle.
Allow for a Full Melt Pool: When burning your soy candle for the first time, allow it to create a full melt pool. This means letting the melted wax reach the edges of the container. This helps to prevent "tunneling," where only the center of the candle melts and leaves unmelted wax along the sides. A full melt pool ensures an even burn and maximises the release of essential oil notes and scent profiles for a more enjoyable aromatherapy experience.
Burn in Intervals: To prevent overheating and extend the life of your soy candle, it's recommended to burn it in intervals of 2-3 hours at a time. This allows the candle to cool down between burns and prevents the wax from becoming too hot and potentially damaging the fragrance or causing the wick to drown.
Store Properly: When not in use, store your soy candle in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures. Exposure to heat and light can cause the candle to melt or lose its scent potency. Proper storage ensures that your candle remains in optimal condition for a longer lifespan and maximum enjoyment.
