Burn time for your Pillar Candles

When Burning your Pillar Candles do they look like this?

Or do they look like this?

To stop your candles from burning unevenly or dripping there are a few tips that I can give you.

1st) when purchasing your candle make sure your wick is centered.
A wick that is off center will not burn properly and one side will get hotter than the other.

2nd) burn your pillar for 1hour per inch in diameter.  So if you have a 3" candle you should burn it for 3 hours. If you burn it less you will have 'welling' in your candle, if you burn it more you risk dripping and making a mess of your candle. 

Tomorrow I will let you know how to keep your pillar candle looking almost brand new :)

Any questions or comments please feel free to leave a comment below.  I will get back to you as soon as I can.
