Hello, candle lovers and summer adventurers! Summer is the perfect season for exploring new destinations, enjoying the sun, and creating unforgettable memories. But what if you could bring a touch of home along with you? At Smell of Love Candles, we believe that the familiar glow and comforting scent of a candle can elevate your travel experience. Whether you're heading to a tropical beach or a mountain retreat, our guide will help you travel with candles safely and effortlessly this summer.

The Perks of Traveling with Candles

Bringing candles on your summer vacation offers numerous benefits:

  • Cozy Ambiance: Transform any space into a relaxing oasis with the warm glow of a candle.
  • Aromatherapy: Scented candles can help you unwind after a day of adventure or energize you for the night ahead.
  • Personal Touch: Infuse your temporary lodging with the familiar scents of home, making it feel more personal and inviting.

Navigating Airline Regulations

Before you start packing, it's essential to understand the rules about bringing candles on a plane. The TSA and most international security agencies allow solid candles in carry-on and checked luggage. However, gel candles are considered liquids and must adhere to the 3-1-1 rule (3.4 ounces or less per container, all containers must fit in a single quart-sized bag).

Packing Your Candles: Summer Edition

  1. Select Travel-Friendly Candles: Choose candles that are designed for travel. Our 4 oz travel tin candles are perfect for this purpose. They're durable and less likely to break compared to traditional glass candles.

  2. Proper Packaging: Wrap each candle in bubble wrap or soft clothing to protect them from damage. Place them in the center of your carry-on bag, surrounded by your other items for extra cushioning.

  3. Consider the Heat: Summer heat can cause candles to melt. Keep your candles in a cool, shaded part of your bag, and avoid leaving them in a hot car or direct sunlight.

Smooth Sailing Through Security

  • Be Prepared: If asked about your candles at security, be ready to explain that they are solid and non-flammable.
  • Stay Informed: Check the specific regulations of your airline and destination country to avoid any surprises.

Making the Most of Your Candles on Vacation

Once you've arrived at your summer getaway, it's time to enjoy the benefits of your candles:

  • Set the Scene: Light your candle to create a cozy atmosphere in your hotel room, rental, or campsite.
  • Enhance Relaxation: After a day of sun and fun, use your candle's scent to unwind and de-stress.
  • Practice Safety: Always use candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface, away from flammable items, and never leave them unattended.
