How To Enjoy Longer Lasting Candles

Did you know that candle wax has a memory of its own?

If you extinguish a candle before it melts all the way to the edges, the next time you light it, the wax will melt across only as far as it melted the first time.

To enjoy longer-lasting candles, burn until the wax melts to the edges before extinguishing, especially the first time you light your candle.

To work out how long it takes for the wax in your candle to melt all the way across, the rule of thumb is each diameter inch takes one hour to melt.

For example, a 2.5 inch diameter Wickpy candle takes up to 2.5 hours to melt all the way across.
