CANDLE BURN TIMES

The candle burn times listed below are approximations only based on the size of the candle.  Variables such as wax type, candle size, wick type, additives, fragrance, dye and room conditions can affect the burn time of a candle.  It is suggested that in order to gain the best performance from a candle, it should only be burnt for a  maximum of 3 hours before extinguishing, allowing it cool, trimming the wick and relighting.

When burning soy container candles, always burn the candle long enough on the first burn to allow the melt pool to reach the glass sides of the container.  By allowing the wax to melt all the way to the edges, you will avoid tunneling which drowns the wick, which will cause it not to ignite or burn correctly the next time the candle is lit.
