Ribbed Pear

  • Minimum Burn Time: Varies as the candle tapers to the widest diameter. My recommendation with these Pear candles is to burn for 1-2 hours for the first three sessions and then slow to 3 hours as the form fills out.

    The minimum burn time is equal in hours to the inches of the candle’s diameter. This is the shortest amount of time you want to burn your candles each time. You can burn for longer than recommended burn time but remember to pause and trim your wick throughout your burn.

    What will happen if I burn my candles for shorter durations than the recommended burn time? You will tunnel your wick.

    Tunneling happens when the liquid melt pool does not extend wide enough to the walls of the candle and your wick can’t hold a flame. Repeat burns that are too short will create a narrow tunnel limiting the amount of oxygen that can get to the flame. The wick will drown in its own melt pool and you’ll be left with a big chunk of wax that you can’t burn.

    So slow down and enjoy burning your candle :)
