Our 7.5oz sage scented candle lasts up to 65 hours and our votive candles last up to 12 hours each.
Our Sage + Oat Milk candles are a soy and paraffin blend. The addition of a small amount of paraffin allows for a better burning experience.
A longer wick creates a larger flame, a larger flame melts the wax faster and the wax melts faster than the wick, so the flame gets larger as the candle burns down. Keeping the wick trimmed and burning 4-5 hours at a time slows everything down so you get to enjoy your candle for longer and more often will provide a deeper cleanse removing water-based debris like sweat and dirt without drying or stripping the skin.
When you don’t trim the candle wick to 1/4 inch before burning, soot may be created. Smoke is also created when candles are placed near a draft as this may cause the candle to burn unevenly.
Tunneling happens when a candle is not burned long enough to melt the wax to the edge of the candle. We suggest burning your candle for at least one hour per inch of the diameter.
