How do Scented Candles Burn Flat?

Apr. 07, 2020

Why can't my Scented Candle burn a flat and beautiful wax pool? In fact, I myself have had the trouble of beloved candles burning very ugly. After doing some homework, I realized that how to burn scented candles is very particular. Learn now and sell now, let's move up!

1. The first burn is very important!

If you want the scented candle to burn nicely, when you burn it for the first time, you must wait for the candle on the surface to completely melt to form a flat wax pool before extinguishing it!

Wax has a memory. If you burn out the candle without waiting for the complete wax pool to be burned for the first time, you will not burn it out every time you burn it to the place where it is first extinguished. Form a deep hole.

However, as long as the complete wax pool is burned for the first time, you can be capricious in the future, because your candle already remembers where the burning edge is.

2. Trim the wick before each burn

Jar Candle Holder Supplier recommends that you trim the wick every time you light the candle, leaving a length of about 5 mm.

If the wick is too long, the candle will be consumed quickly, and trimming can make the candle last longer. Moreover, if it is not trimmed, black smoke is likely to occur, and the wall of the candle cup is easily blackened.

But why is it recommended to trim before burning, instead of cutting after every burning? If the candle is not completely solidified when you trim the wick, once the charcoal accumulated on the top of the wick falls into the wax pool, it will be more tragic. Don't ask me why I know so clearly? I will cry if I continue.

3. Let professional tools do professional things

Into the scented candle pit, you need to be equipped with at least three professional tools: candle extinguisher, igniter, candle wick shear.

Candle extinguisher

Common candle extinguishers include candle extinguishing clocks and candle extinguishing hooks. But it is not recommended that you choose to extinguish the candle hook. The method of extinguishing the candle hook is to press the candle wick into the candle pool to extinguish it, so that the carbon head at the top of the candle wick can easily fall into the wax pool.

In contrast, extinguishing candles is a more recommended option for experts.


A special igniter for scented candles is required because once the candle is burned down, the lighter at home usually cannot reach the wick and cannot be ignited and can only stare at the candle.

Wick shear

Why do you need a professional candle wick shear? If it is a relatively thin candle cup, especially when the candle has been burned deep, the daily scissors cannot be inserted into the candle cup, and the slender candle wick shears can trim the candle wick easily.
