I’ve been there too…but luckily, I’ve got news!
It isn’t actually the candle’s fault at all. That’s right! here are some simple tips to avoid this issue.
First off, always trim your wicks! This is an essential step for a clean and even burn. Wick trimming to ¼ inch helps control your flame height. A flame to high can cause the candle to burn faster create black soot and overheat the jar container which is very dangerous. You can also simply pinch the wick with your fingers (only if it’s cool!!!) or trim it with wick scissors. Boom—easy fix!
There are three ways to extinguish a flame. blowing it out is the easiest. It’s what most people do! However, it can leave the room filled with smoke afterwards. We recommend using a wick dipper or a candle snuffer. The wick dipper technique is when you simply dip the wick into the wax pool. This is an excellent way to prevent smoking, and it doesn’t harm the wick or candle at all. A candle snuffer is our personal favorite. It is the perfect tool to put out your candle with no damage and minimal smoke! Pro tip: We like to use our wick dippers, candle snuffers, and candle trimmers as home décor!

Ambiance is a feeling or mood that is associated with a certain person or place.
Imagine walking into a spa… You immediately feel a sense of relaxation and calmness. That is the ambiance, and it is no accident! Creating an intentional ambiance has a major impact on the feeling of your home. I’m sure you have friends whose homes you love to visit, and others… maybe not so much. It’s all because of the ambiance that they’ve created there, whether it was intentional or not! Depending on your personality type, you might prefer a different ambiance than someone else. For example, maybe you prefer a bright and sunny room with colors and flowers and light, while your friend prefers a dimly lit room, filled with dark neutrals. In this case, it’s likely that your personality might be more outgoing and bubbly, while your friend tends to be more laid back and chill! Crazy how that works… isn’t it?
So, how do you create the best ambiance for your personality, for your family and for your guests?
There are a few factors that you should consider when finding the perfect balance for your home.
First off, sound. Is your space quiet? Is it loud with the laughter and footsteps of children? Or maybe you live in a busy area where you hear the constant honking of horns… No matter what the case may be, consider adding some quiet music in the background. Choose a playlist (and volume!) that is appropriate for the occasion. If you’re working, try some soft instrumentals. If you’re having friends over, maybe something a little more upbeat!
Next lighting (I think you see where we are going here…)! Lighting plays a large role in the ambiance of your home. Opening or closing window shades, turning off an overhead light and adding a lamp, or…. (DING DING DING) lighting a candle can be great ways to adjust the lighting in your space. Don’t just use a harsh overhead light, get creative and find what works best for you!
The neatness of your space is the third factor I’d like to share with you. You may not want to hear this, but a messy or clean space instantly makes an impression on a guest whether it be good or bad, and it affects the way that they feel! Plus, whether you realize it or not, it also affects you and your mood. It is proven that a tidy space can cause you and your guests to feel more relaxed and at peace.
Even if you prefer a more eclectic style, make sure your junk is put away!
Last (and certainly not least…) SCENT! You know that feeling you get when you smell that particular scent? Maybe something familiar from childhood, like grandma’s famous cookies. Or maybe it is the cologne or perfume of your lover. Whatever it may be, these scents elicit emotion as soon as you smell them—good or bad. Remember this for your home. When you return to your house after a busy day, or your guests are entering for the first time, what do you want them to be greeted with?

Soy candles: Made from soy wax, these candles are eco-friendly, long-lasting, and have a clean burn.
Beeswax candles: Made from natural beeswax, these candles have a warm, honey-like scent and produce a bright flame.
Paraffin candles: Made from petroleum, these candles are the most common and affordable type of candle. However, they may emit harmful chemicals when burned.
Gel candles: Made from a clear gel, these candles have a unique look and can be filled with various objects like shells or marbles.
Choosing the Right Scents
The most important factor when choosing scented candles is a personal preference. However, different scents can also have different effects on your mood. Here are some of the most popular scents and their benefits:
Lavender: Known for its calming properties, lavender is perfect for creating a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.
Peppermint: Invigorating and refreshing, peppermint is ideal for creating a stimulating and energizing atmosphere.
Vanilla: Warm and comforting, vanilla is perfect for creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
Citrus: Refreshing and uplifting, citrus scents like lemon or orange are perfect for creating a lively and energetic atmosphere.
Creating the Perfect Ambience
Alright, so you've got all the basics down when it comes to candles and scents, but now it's time to take things up a notch and create the perfect ambiance for any occasion. Here are some tips to help you really set the mood:
Let's start with scent layering. You might already know that combining different scents can create a more complex and interesting aroma, but have you tried layering different scents? For example, try combining vanilla and cinnamon for a warm and inviting atmosphere that's perfect for a cozy night in.
Next up, don't be afraid to mix and match candles of different sizes. Not only does it create visual interest, but it can also add depth to your ambiance. For example, use larger candles as a focal point and smaller ones as accents to create a more dynamic display.
When it comes to creating an ambiance for a specific occasion, keep in mind that different events call for different vibes. For a romantic dinner, you might want to go with a softer and more subtle scent, while a party might call for a brighter and more energetic scent to keep the energy high.
Placement is also important. Where you place your candles can greatly affect the ambiance of the room. Try placing candles near reflective surfaces like mirrors or metallic objects to create a more luminous atmosphere that bounces light around the room.
So, there you have it! With these tips, you'll be well on your way to creating the perfect ambiance for any occasion. Just remember to trust your senses and let your creativity guide you. Who knows, you might even discover a new favorite scent combination along the way! Creating the perfect ambiance with scented candles is a truly magical experience that can elevate any moment into something truly unforgettable.
