How to make your candles last longer

At Lagom Essence we use a natural soy based wax which is more sustainable compared to petroleum based paraffin wax. 

In addition to being eco, soy wax also lasts longer - our 20cl aromatherapy candles burn for upto 35hrs. 

There are ways how you can make the candle last  longer by following these easy tips: 

  1. Each time you light your candle let it burn for a min of two hours and maximum of four hours so that the whole top has liquified. This helps in avoiding tunnelling and you are using up every inch of the wax.
  2. Keep wicks trimmed to around ¼ inch (½ cm) to keep the flame small and help in using less wax during each burn.
  3. For safety reasons do not burn the candle for more than four hours, especially as the therapeutic effect of the candle will not enhance when you burn the candle any longer. After four hours of burn extinguish the candle, cool for two hours minimum and trim the wick before relighting 

These are simple but essential tips in making the most of your candle and reducing unnecessary wax waste.
