In the market, the candles sold by the store are often colorful. At this time, the color basically represents the corresponding smell.
For example, red generally represents 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 there is no taste on the candle, the clerk will roughly introduce its smell according to the color.
After knowing the taste you want, 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 small 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 not only drop the black ash into the candle, but also emit black smoke after the next 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 generally bare wax, transparent plastic paper packaging, tin foil packaging and bottle packaging. How should I choose among these?
The bare wax will leave the wax in the candle when it burns. If it is placed on the table, it will lead to more processes and waste time.
Plastic packaging wax is generally tested by the factory, it will not cause the package to burn, it can also wrap the candle well, and it will 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 in size, but the iron heat transfer 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 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 It 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 it is burned, buy some bare wax with a clear smell and put them in the tank to ignite.
This is both environmentally friendly and saves money, and saves the trouble of cleaning up. Why do you not do it?
