Candles can add a touch of ambiance and fragrance to any space, but to get the most out of your candles, it's important to take good care of them. Here are a few tips for maintaining your candles and ensuring they burn safely and efficiently:

  1. Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. This will help the candle burn evenly and reduce the risk of soot build-up.

  2. Keep the wax pool clear: As the candle burns, it can create a "memory ring" around the edges of the jar. To prevent this and ensure that the candle burns evenly, make sure to keep the wax pool clear by occasionally scraping away any excess wax.

  3. Don't burn your candle for too long: Most candles have a maximum burn time, so it's important to follow the manufacturer's recommendations to avoid overheating the jar and reducing the life of your candle.

  4. Keep candles away from flammable materials: It's important to keep your candles away from flammable materials, such as curtains, paper, and other decorative items.

By following these tips, you can help your candles burn safely and efficiently, and enjoy them for longer periods of time. Happy candle-burning!"
