Candle Care 101: How to Make Your Rayo Luxe Candle Last Longer


The captivating glow of a candle flame, coupled with a scent that transports you, is truly one of life's simplest pleasures. At Rayo Luxe, every candle we craft is a testament to our commitment to quality, sustainability, and the joy of fragrant living. To ensure that you get the most out of our creations, we've put together a definitive guide to candle care.


1. The First Burn is the Deepest

The first time you light your Rayo Luxe candle is crucial. Candles have a memory and the initial burn will set the stage for the rest. Allow the wax to melt across the entire surface to the edges of the vessel, this ensures an even burn for subsequent uses and reduces the chance of ‘tunneling’. Ideally, this would mean letting the candle burn for about 2-4 hours, depending on its size.

2. Trim Your Wick

Before relighting your candle, ensure the wick is trimmed to about 1/4 inch. This will not only prolong the life of your candle but also prevent soot from accumulating inside the vessel or on your walls.

3. Burn in Safe Increments

While it’s tempting to let your Rayo Luxe candle burn all day, it's best to limit burning sessions to 4 hours. This preserves the candle’s life and prevents potential safety hazards.

4. Safety First

Always place your candle on a non-flammable surface and never leave it unattended. If you’re leaving the room, extinguish the flame.

5. Keep It Clean

If there's any black soot inside your candle jar, wait for the candle to cool and wipe it with a clean, damp cloth. This ensures an even burn and maintains the purity of the fragrance.

6. Storage Matters

Store your Rayo Luxe candle in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain its integrity and fragrance quality.

7. Know When to Say Goodbye

Once your candle has about half an inch of wax left, it's time to retire it. But the vessel has more stories to tell! Consider repurposing it as a plant holder, makeup brush vessel, or decorative container.



With proper care, your Rayo Luxe candle will provide you with many hours of fragrant delight. These candles are crafted with love, intention, and a touch of luxury. By following these guidelines, you not only extend your candle's life but also enhance your sensory experience with each burn. Illuminate, indulge, and immerse yourself in the world of Rayo Luxe.
