One of my favorite things to do after a long day of work is relaxing with scented candles, so when Chesapeake Bay Candle contacted me about their new candle collections, I was really excited to give them a try. When I received the candles from Chesapeake Bay Candle I was immediately impressed by the high quality packaging. The candles have a luxury feel to them with beautiful wood tops and heavy glass jars, some of which had a nice frosted glass appearance. Most importantly, I found their candles to have a strong fragrance "throw", which is essential to a great candle. Chesapeake Bay Candle also has a lovely (and broad) selection of nature-inspired candle scents, which are sure to please the most discerning candle lover. I was definitely impressed.
As a person who buys candles frequently I like to ensure that I am maximizing the life of my candles, along with maximizing the money in my wallet. In the spirit of enjoying your candles to the fullest, I have put together 5 great tips for getting the most out of your own scented candles! Here are my top 5 tips:
When you get a new candle, cut your candle wick down to 1/4 inch before burning to ensure even burning. Also, allowing your candle to burn at least 3 hours the first time you light it will also ensure that the surface of the candle melts evenly and doesn't tunnel.
Try enjoying a lit candle during your bath or shower time. The steam will enhance your candle's scent creating an aromatherapy experience.
Chesapeake Bay Candle's "Mind & Body" Collection.
Select candle scents to accommodate your various moods and needs. Chesapeake Bay Candle Co. has a great Mind & Body Collection with this specific idea in mind. I really enjoyed their "Balance + Harmony" candle. They also have energizing candles like the "Strength + Energy" candle shown above.
Once you finish burning your entire candle, save your candle jars for unique DIY projects. You can find a few DIY ideas for your candle jars here and here. And if you need help removing left over wax from your jars first, here is a tutorial on cleaning out your candle jars.
5. You don't have to settle for non-scented candles around the dinner table. While dining, including scented candles with soft natural fragrances will add to a luxurious dining experience. Try a fragrance like Chesapeake Bay Candle's Vanilla Blossom.
Enjoy dining at home with scented candles.
At home currently I'm relaxing with these 3 amazing candles from Chesapeake Bay Candle, which I highly recommend (see above). I selected the Black Birch scent, Balance + Harmony, and lastly Milk & Honey, which was my favorite, although they are all fantastic.
