So, how long does the Crystal Candle last?

When it comes to the lasting power of the Crystal Candle, there are a few elements to keep in mind regarding the durability of each candle. Every candle contains a different lifetime, as there are factors that will impede or progress their longevity, specifically the size and shape of the candle, what type of wax is used, how the candle is cared for, and the environment the candle exists within. 

To grasp a better understanding of the influence of these factors, here's what to keep in mind when deciphering the longevity of your candle

7 Factors that Affect the Longevity of Your Candle

1. Type of Wax

Different types of wax, such as paraffin, soy, beeswax, or palm wax, have varying burn rates and characteristics that affect how long a candle will last. The Crystal Candle contains a high-quality soy wax that tends to last longer than average candles.

2. Wick Size and Type 

 The size and type of the wick used in the candle can impact the rate at which the wax is consumed and thus influence the overall burn time. The Petite Crystal Candle contains three wicks, the Original contains four, and the Grande contains five.

3. Candle Size and Shape

The physical dimensions and shape of the candle play a role in determining how long it will last. Thicker, wider candles generally burn longer than thinner ones.

4. Environmental Conditions

Factors like temperature, humidity, and air circulation can influence the way a candle burns. Drafts or air currents may cause uneven burning, leading to a shorter burn time.

5. Presence of Additives

Certain additives, such as fragrance oils or colorants, can affect the burn time of a candle, as they can alter the properties of the wax and impact how quickly it melts.

6. Candle Care and Maintenance

Proper candle care, such as trimming the wick, ensuring an even wax pool, and extinguishing the candle correctly, can contribute to a longer burn time.

7. Usage Habits

The duration for which a candle is burned in a single session and how often it is lit can also impact its overall lifespan. 

    Here's How We Suggest Making Your Crystal Candle Last Longer

    There are many ways to show your Crystal Candle unconditional love, here's how we suggest making your candle last longer. As mentioned, candle duration may vary depending on the environment it will exist within, and the steps taken to assure that your candle is properly cared for.

    8 Ways to Ensure the Longevity of Your Candle

    1. Trim the Wick

    Before each use, trim the wick to around 1/4 inch to prevent excessive flickering and ensure a clean, steady burn. We suggest using our Snuffer & Trimmer Set to properly care for your candle, and further a stylish element to bring to your candle set up.

    2. Avoid Drafts

    Place candles away from open windows, fans, or vents to prevent uneven burning and soot buildup. We suggest placing your Crystal Candle, atop a coffee, side or console table.

    3. First Burn Matters

    Allow the flame to burn for a few hours during the initial use to create an even wax pool, which sets the stage for consistent burning in subsequent uses.

    4. Time Management

    Limit each burning session to a few hours to prevent the candle from overheating and depleting too quickly. We suggest burning your Crystal Candle up to a maximum time of six hours.

    5. Use Candle Snuffers

    Extinguish candles with a snuffer instead of blowing them out to prevent wax splatter and smoky residue. Our Snuffer & Trimmer Set will do the trick!

    6. Recenter the Wick

    While the wax is still warm, gently reposition the wick to the center to ensure it burns evenly and prevents excess tunneling.

    7. Proper Storage

    Keep candles in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, to maintain their integrity and prevent warping or melting.

    8. Choose Quality Candles

    Opt for high-quality candles made from premium wax and natural materials, as they often burn longer and more efficiently. Our Crystal Candles are exceptionally high-quality, made from all natural ingredients for a clean burn!
