Do you know the routine to buy scented candles?

In the market, the candles sold by the store are often colorful. At this time, the color represents the corresponding smell.

For example, red generally represents a rose scent, yellow always represents orange blossom, green is green tea, purple is lavender, and gray is ebony. Of course, this is only a general situation. When the candle has no taste, the clerk roughly introduces its smell according to the color.

After knowing your desired taste, how do you know which candle is worth buying?

The ingredient list on the label should be taken seriously. The general scented candle is dominated by the essential oil fragrance, which is added to the essential oil during the candle-making process and thus emits a taste when burned.

As the body of the candle, there are generally three different materials: paraffin, beeswax, and soy wax.

As the name suggests, the composition of beeswax and soy wax is healthier and more environmentally friendly, and they are more resistant to burning than traditional paraffin, which is slower to clean and easier to clean.

After talking about the wax body, let’s talk about the wick.

The general wicks are made of cotton, and the cotton absorbs the liquid on the candle during the burning process, which is flame-resistant and environmentally friendly. However, there is a minor point of attention: after extinguishing the candle, it is often necessary to actively cut off the blackened cotton segments, leaving only the white line. This is because the blackened cotton thread will drop the black ash into the candle and emit black smoke after the subsequent ignition, which is naturally harmful to the human body.

After reading this, there is a final step in choosing a candle, and that is its outer packaging. There are bare wax, transparent plastic paper packaging, tin foil, and bottle packaging. How should I choose among these?

The bare wax will leave the resin in the candle when it burns. If it is placed on the table, it will lead to more processes and waste time.

The factory generally tests plastic packaging wax; it will not cause the package to burn; it can also wrap the candle well and not scratch the surface. But the candle burns for a long time and then wants to ignite. It needs to put the lighter into it, some troubles, some Danger.

Tin-wrapped candles are generally short and small, but the iron heat transfers during the burning process. Sometimes, you want to move it, and you will accidentally burn your fingers.

The last canned candle is generally made of a glass jar ceramic jar, medium volume, suitable depth, and the burning wax water will remain in the bottle body. After solidification, it can be burned several times, prolonging the use time; of course, the price is also more expensive.

At this time, the favorite editor who buys candles has a suggestion: you can buy a canned candle first when you buy it. After burning it, buy some bare wax with an unmistakable smell and put it in the tank to ignite.

This is both environmentally friendly, saves money, and keeps the trouble of cleaning up. Why do you not do it?
