Be like Meghan Markle (a Diptyque superfan), and bring one on your next business trip. This candle smells like a summer vacation, thanks to marine and plumeria notes.
These mini travel candles are packed in tins so they fit easily into your luggage or overnight bag for trips away from home. They make a great addition to a hotel room for picnics, camping, and even yoga classes.
They’re also great for gifting and are a thoughtful option for travel companions and armchair travelers. They come in sets that take you on scent journeys, from hiking in the misty mountains of Cascadia to escaping to the lush islands of the South Pacific to cooking a French dinner. Each candle has a burn time of about 25-30 hours and is hand-poured in the US using a clean-burning soy wax blend and phthalate-free fine fragrance oils for a long, tunnel-free burn. A reusable brushed gold lid protects the candle during storage.
Try one of these mini travel candles to make your hotel room feel more like home. The scented wax in these reusable tins is made from organic soy wax with a natural balsa wood wick, creating a crackling campfire sound when burned. Some offer a range of mood-boosting scents, including earthy Sage & Citrus. These candles come in tins that are TSA-approved for carry-on luggage. Remember to trim the wick before burning and keep your candle away from drafts to avoid smoke and soot. A well-trimmed wick will help you get the longest burn possible from your candle, which will help prolong its life. It will also help you avoid getting that dreaded tunnel effect.
The burn time of a travel candle depends on several factors, including the type and quality of the wax, the number of wicks and the diameter of the wick. The fragrance oils and wax additives like cyber and stearic acid also affect the speed at which candles burn. A good tip is always to trim the wick before the first use and each subsequent time you relight your candle. This will ensure that your candle burns evenly and helps to prevent tunneling, where only a small part of the wax melts, causing the outer rim to remain hard. Mini candles are designed to smell like your home, making it ideal for a weekend getaway or a business trip and feel more like a vacation with marine and plumeria notes. The candle also comes with a little pouch, making it easy to fit into your carry-on.
When used properly, travel candles are safe to take on the go. However, they’re still a fire hazard and should be placed on a non-flammable surface in a candle holder designed specifically for your type of candle. You should also keep the burning candle away from anything flammable, including hair, clothing, books, paper, furniture, and decorations. It would help if you used a long lighter when lighting the candle, as this keeps your hands from coming into contact with the flame and prevents heat damage to underlying surfaces. When traveling with your candles, it’s best to pack them in your carry-on bag rather than your checked luggage. This way, you’ll have more control over how airport workers handle them as they shuffle your suitcases on and off the conveyor belt. Remember to properly dispose of your travel candles when you’re done with them. Repurpose them as travel-themed trinkets or use them to store things like sugar scrubs and homemade dishwasher detergent. Also, remember to always extinguish the candle down to 1/2 inch of wax before relighting (Burning a candle lower than this can cause it to burn unevenly or catch on fire).
