Can candles get moldy?
People also ask, can candle wax grow mold?
Wax bloom and mold are not the same. While mold can and does grow in beehives, especially when a colony has died, not all powdery white films are mold. In fact, it is usually just wax bloom—a normal and harmless substance that comes from the wax itself.
Also Know, how do you store candles for a year? Candles should be stored in a cool environment, room temperature or below, if possible. This is to prevent the from softening, bending, or melting altogether. For obvious reasons, jar candles are less sensitive than taper candles, but if you have a basement, that is a great place for them to live when not on display.
One may also ask, do candles have an expiration date?
Candles don't expire as far as the wax itself. As far as the scent goes, it goes away EVENTUALLY but it takes a LONG time if the candle is stored properly (has a lid, not out in the garage, etc). A year is way short.
