Candles are our favorite and we wish that we could sit by candlelight on an everyday basis. Unfortunately, they do not always burn in the manner that we would like. That’s where this helpful primer comes into play. Scented candles are also a great way to make sure that your home smells awesome, so it is easy to see why so many people are looking to make sure that they burn properly.

When candles do not burn evenly, the wax buildup can be cumbersome. Once the wax builds up to a certain point, the candle simply will not burn. The simple trick that we are about to provide you with is a lifesaver. Your home will always smell its best and you are going to have the chance to enjoy a more even burn….every single time.

This trick is as easy as it gets and you won’t need to be an expert to figure it out. The 2 1/2 minute clip that you are about to see will provide you with all of the information that you need to know. When the video opens, you can see the sort of uneven burn that the woman is talking about. As one reader mentioned, candles have a memory, and if they are burned unevenly once? They are going to remain that way forever. This is especially true of candles that have multiple wicks.
