How to Achieve a Clean and Perfect Candle Burn: A Guide with Myariella Candles



Candles have the incredible ability to create an inviting and serene ambiance in our homes. To fully appreciate their beauty and fragrance, it's essential to achieve a clean and perfect candle burn. In this blog post, we will explore the art of achieving a clean burn and introduce Myariella Candles as the go-to destination for high-quality handmade candles made with soy wax.

  1. Embrace the Benefits of Soy Wax: When aiming for a clean burn, choosing candles made with soy wax is a wise choice. Myariella Candles understands the importance of a clean-burning experience and handcrafts their candles using premium soy wax. Soy wax is a natural and renewable resource that burns more cleanly than traditional paraffin wax. It produces minimal soot and releases fewer toxins into the air, ensuring a cleaner and healthier environment.

  2. Trim the Wick: Before lighting your handmade Myariella candle, ensure that the wick is trimmed to approximately 1/4 inch. A longer wick can lead to uneven burning, excessive smoke, and the formation of black soot. By keeping the wick at an optimal length, you promote a cleaner burn and extend the longevity of your candle.

  3. Allow for Sufficient Burn Time: To achieve a clean and even burn, it's important to allow your soy wax candle to melt across the entire surface during each use. This process typically takes about one hour per inch in diameter of the candle. Allowing the wax to completely liquefy prevents tunneling, where the candle burns down the center, leaving unused wax on the sides. By ensuring a sufficient burn time, you maximize the lifespan of your Myariella candle while maintaining a clean and consistent burn.

  4. Create a Draft-Free Environment: To achieve a clean burn, it's crucial to place your handmade Myariella candle in a draft-free environment. Air currents can disrupt the flame and cause uneven burning, excess soot, and smoking. By positioning your candle away from open windows, fans, or vents, you create a stable environment for the flame to burn steadily and cleanly, enhancing your candle's performance and fragrance.

  5. Extinguish with Care: When it's time to extinguish your handmade soy wax candle, use a candle snuffer or gently blow out the flame. Blowing too forcefully can cause wax to splatter and smoke to linger. A snuffer ensures a clean and controlled extinguishing process. Always remember to never leave a burning candle unattended and place it on a heat-resistant surface.

Conclusion: Achieving a clean and perfect candle burn is both an art and a science. By selecting handmade candles from Myariella, crafted with care using soy wax, you are already on the path to a cleaner burn. Combine that with proper wick trimming, sufficient burn time, a draft-free environment, and safe extinguishing practices, and you will enjoy a delightful and clean fragrance experience. Explore the exquisite range of Myariella candles and elevate your space with the beauty and purity of handcrafted soy wax creations.
