Which candles burn cleanly and why?

Candles, although seemingly simple in their form, hide many secrets. One is their preference to burn clean or generate significant amounts of smoke and soot. In this article, we'll explore the secrets of clean candle burning and why some candles kick in, with tips and tricks on how to avoid this problem. Let's also discover the technical specifications of good quality candles and the variety of fragrance products available on the market.

On the market you will find many types of candles made of different types of vegetable wax, animal wax and paraffin wax. Each raw material used to create a candle has certain properties that affect how the candle will burn. You've probably wondered why some candles melt and others burn out cleanly? In our article you will learn why!

Why do candles smoke?

Candle mounding can be the result of various factors, some of which can be easily identified and resolved, while others require more detailed analysis. One of the main reasons for smoking is improper adjustment of the wick up to the size of a candle. Wick too long can generate an excessive amount of smoke, while a too short can lead to the extinguishing of the flame. Also, using low-quality candles, containing artificial additives or a deficiency of wax, can also contribute to the mounding of the candle.

Clean candle burning: key factors

To enjoy a clean burn of scented candle, there are several key factors to look out for. First of all, when choosing a candle, you should pay attention to its composition. Candles made from natural, high quality waxes, such as soy wax, canola wax or other vegetable waxes or beeswax usually burn cleanly. In addition, properly selected wick, of optimum thickness and length, is key to maintaining a stable flame without any smoke.

Tips and tricks for clean candle burning

To avoid smoking, it's a good idea to follow a few simple tips. Regularly trim the wick before lighting the candle, in order to maintain the proper length. In addition avoid exposing candles to drafts or close to other heat sources, which can disrupt the flame balance and lead to smoking.

Technical specifications of candles vs. clean burning

A good quality candle should be made of natural ingredients such as soy wax, beeswax or paraffin, without the addition of artificial colors and fragrances. The wick should be made of cotton or wood, of appropriate thickness and length. The candle should be designed to burn evenly and not generate excessive smoke. A lid or getting a candle saver will be useful.

Diversity of candles in the context of clean burning

There is a wide range of candle types available on the market to suit different needs and preferences. Cone candles, column candles, votive candles, tealight candles or candles in jars - there is something for everyone. In addition, the variety of available fragrances allows you to choice of candles, which not only burn beautifully, but also fill the room with your favorite aroma.

How to make a candle burn cleanly and not smoking step by step

Here are simple steps to help you enjoy a clean burning candle at Candle World:

  1. Choose the right candle: Choose a candle made with high-quality ingredients such as soy wax and other plant waxes. For paraffin, choose only refined paraffin candles. Paraffin, however, tends to release more soot compared to other waxes.

  2. Trim the wick: Before lighting the candle, trimming the wick to a length of about 5 mm will help to maintain a stable flame and prevent smoking.

  3. Avoid drafts: Try to place the candle away from drafts and other sources of heat, which can disrupt the flame balance and lead to smoke.

  4. Avoid inappropriate extinguishment: Do not extinguish the candle by blowing out the flame, as this may cause it to smoke. Instead, use a lid or gently dip the wick into the wax.

By following these simple steps, you will be able to enjoy a clean burning candle without any smoke, creating a pleasant atmosphere in your home.

Candles are not only a source of light and warmth, but also a decorative element and a source of. Choosing appropriately, we can enjoy pure candles that not only illuminate the room, but also add charm and ambience to the room. Let's keep in mind the key factors for clean candle burning by following the tips and tricks and choosing a quality candle that meets our expectations.
