1. What are the Benefits of Burning Scented Candles?

Scented candles offer a myriad of benefits beyond their enchanting aromas. They can help create a cozy ambiance, promote relaxation and stress relief, mask odors, and even serve as decorative accents to elevate any space.

2. Are Scented Candles Safe to Burn?

When used properly, scented candles are safe to burn. However, it's essential to follow manufacturer instructions, trim the wick to the recommended length before each use, and avoid burning candles for extended periods to prevent overheating.

3. How Long Should I Burn a Scented Candle?

For optimal burn time and fragrance dispersion, it's recommended to burn a scented candle for 1-4 hours at a time, depending on the candle's size and composition. This helps prevent tunneling and ensures an even wax melt pool.

4. How Can I Make My Scented Candles Last Longer?

To prolong the lifespan of your scented candles, ensure they're placed on a level surface away from drafts and flammable objects. Trim the wick to 1/4 inch before each use, and avoid burning candles for more than 4 hours at a time. Additionally, storing candles in a cool, dark place can help preserve their fragrance and integrity.

5. What Fragrance Should I Choose for My Scented Candle?

The fragrance you choose depends on personal preference and the desired ambiance. Floral scents like lavender and rose promote relaxation, while citrusy aromas like lemon and grapefruit are invigorating. Experiment with different fragrances to discover your favorites.

As you embark on your scented candle journey, remember that knowledge is key to unlocking the full potential of these aromatic wonders. At Aurelia Candles, we're here to guide you every step of the way, ensuring your candle experience is nothing short of illuminating.
