approx. burn times

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm getting my first shipment of soy wax in this week. I was just wondering what the approximate burn time is for these soy candles. I've been reading that they have a longer burn time than paraffin. I'm wondering about tealights, votives, 16 ounce containers and 20 oz. pillars. I know I have to test them and I am obviously going to do that- but I was just curious to see what your candles are burning at. I'm very anxious to get this order in and get started!! Thanks for any input!

It is exciting to make your first candles, I remember my first candle and I was a nervous wreak worrying about how to pour, wicks etc that I just fretted for days before finally giving it a go.

If you give us a little more info about your jars we can give you more accurate idea of burn times. I definitely get longer burns from my soy candles than paraffin, though.
