DON'T BURN COLD CANDLES.
That could honestly be the whole blog post! lol This is your yearly cold weather reminder to allow any candles you may receive in the mail or as gifts that were transported your way to warm up to room temperature before lighting. (I suggest at least 24 hours.) Why? Because the wick can't work fast or hard enough to liquify a frozen candle and tunneling occurs. I was reminded of this fact when I popped into my very cold studio and decided to test a candle that had been stored below 40 degrees for at least a week. Not only was the hot throw weak, the candle tunneled. *sigh* While tunneled candles are not ideal, all is not lost! Grab a candle warmer and warm the remaining wax. No scent left behind. Have a cozy, peaceful, fragrant winter y'all.
