Enjoyed pleasant moments by candlelight as long as possible, it is necessary for them to know too little. Candle is actually a simple light source, is used since ancient times and consists of a body of candle wick and optionally cup.

Principle of candles: wick absorbs combustible material from the candle body, which heat the candle melts and the surface of the wick is then vaporized combustible and burns or evaporates. It contains paraffin.
What is actually paraffin: a white crystalline mixture of higher saturated hydrocarbons (alkanes). Recovered on crystallization dewaxing oil or tar, or is produced by catalytic synthesis. Melting point ranges from 42 ° C (soft paraffin), 65 ° C (hard paraffin) and above. Candle is used paraffin oil content to 2%.
Most importantly, before you light the candle: lately, I see that customers complain about the quality of candles whatever funeral and decorative. I have for you a few important tips:
– The heavier candle, the better and longer burning
– In the summer I do not recommend using oil candles, they are useful when colder weather, otherwise leaking and badly burning. Conversely, in colder weather it is the best choice.
– If you buy a candle for a lot of “cheap money” you can not count on the fact that you will smell or burn for a long time, and it will take some extra quality.
And most important: always on any candle, which triggers, you must shorten the wick to a maximum length of 1 cm, more is even less!! Speaking lighting a candle, be sure to allow it to burn for several hours, then ensure even heat the candle and will burn well and will not begin to flow or drip. At the candlelight really true that cheap and lightweight (ie. When whipped) = poor, so it’s always worth a little candles to pay more, or at least ask the merchant what material is made candle. The best quality and longest burning candles with excellent fine fragrances, candles palm, which I highly recommend you to try. “Flowers ticket” are trying to find a manufacturer of candles largely on the Czech market and their candles, they are absolutely amazing, at least according to our experience and the experience of our customers
I only wish you nice backlight summer-autumn evenings by the light of candles.
