What's your burn time?

Burn times will always vary depending on the placement of your candle(s). For example, drafty areas will cause your candle to burn quicker. Burn times will also vary depending on the height of your wick. The longer the wick, the quicker the candle will burn. If the wick is too long it will produce soot that will form on your jar. Candlewicks should be trimmed after each use to allow for maximum burn time. This can extend your candles burn time by burning the candles long enough to allow the wax pool to reach the edge. If you do not allow them to burn all the way to the edge of the container when you first burn them, they will begin to tunnel down into the wax instead of melting all the way to the edges. You should also burn your candle for no longer than four consecutive hours.

FAQs About Soy Candles

Why soy?
Soy wax is made from soy beans grown right here in the United States and produces high quality scents. Soy wax burns clean and allows for maximum fragrance. Soy burns at a much lower temperature allowing for longer burn hours, which allows you to enjoy your candle longer. 

How long do they burn?
When burning your candle there are certain factors that will help your candle last longer. Keep the wick trimmed to about 1/4 inch after each burn. If your wick gets too long it will begin to put off soot and you will notice a black substance around the top inside edge of your candle.

How do I get the longest burn time out of my candle?
Keep your candle away from drafty areas while burning, as the draft can accelerate the burning process and decrease the amount of burn time your candle will achieve. 
Burn your candle for no more than four hours at a time. This will allow a "melt pool" to form at the outer edges and will prevent your candle from over-burning, which will affect the overall burn time of your candle.

How do I maintain my candle?
With soy melting at a lower temperature, keep your candle out of direct sunlight or high heat areas. If your candle is exposed to high heat and does melt, simply move it to a cooler area and the soy wax will re-harden. Never leave a candle unattended while burning. Never have an open flame near curtains or flammable objects.
