9 to be careful for aromatherapy candles

 

1.Where to put an aromatherapy candle


For any kind of candles, you have to be careful where to put. Find the place which is flat and has no wind. Avoid to put the place near the fan or air-confitioning.
Near the ventilator in the kitchen is not also recommended.

Before lightening a fire, make sure the wrapping is off completely. If something is still attached, it might produce the toxic substances when it’s burnt.
Also to avoid the melted wax to overflow, put a heat-protected dish or holder under the candle.

Before putting a light, regulate the length of the candle wick about 6mm. It regulates the size of a flame and avoids to produce a soot.

5.Controlling its flame


It’s important to regulate the wick to make a beautiful flame. When the flame is too big, cut the tip of the wick and make it shorter.
When the flame is too small, throw a bit of melted wax in the center, then make a wick a bit longer. You can also extinguish the flame first then absorb the melted wax using some tissues.

Sometimes the black smoke will be produced. This happens frequently when the candle wick is burnt.
It also produced the smoke by the wind of the air-confitioning so put somewhere else where there’s no wind. And when the wick too long, it produces too so regulate the length about 6mm.

And also some wicks contain metals such as a lead, zinc or tin and they might produce the toxic substances. So the wick which is made by 100% cotton is recommended for the safety.
