It would be a perfect world where we could light a candle and no longer worry about the wax melting. Buying new candles can be a lot of fun, especially those with holiday scents, but sometimes we wish our candles burned longer after all. If you have ever found yourself in such a situation, we have found great solutions on how to extend the life of your candles!

1. Put your candle in the freezer

It may sound silly, but it will help maintain the life of your candle. When you put the candle in the freezer, the wax will freeze, which will then cause it to melt as slowly as possible when you light the candle. Although they are primarily used for storing food, you can put some other things in the freezer, such as candles! The thinner the candle, the less time it needs to spend in the freezer, about 1 hour, while the thicker candle you will need to leave in the freezer for 6 to 8 hours.

2. Sprinkle salt on the liquid wax

Light the candle long enough to collect some liquid wax around the wick, then sprinkle some salt on the wax. To mix better, you can also use a toothpick. Kitchen salt will slow down the time that the wax of your candle melts and thus prolong its life. Also, don’t forget to shorten the wick if it is too long as this too can shorten the life of the candle.

3. Let the candles burn

No one likes the remnants of wax that form around the edge as the candle burns. This happens because we often blow out the candle before the wax has melted enough. If you allow the candle to burn longer, an even wax solution will form around it. This will help the wax to dissolve evenly, and no dried wax will appear on the candle holder. You should keep your candles away from drafts, which can also cause uneven melting.
