    For some reason I thought freezing them first made them burn slower. I read this in Martha Stewart’s magazine or somthing similar. Not sure, though as I only burn beeswax candles.

    Buy 100% soy candles, they burn cooler & therefore slower. They burn w/o tunneling & so there is no wasted wax.They are wonderfully fragrant and burn w/o releasing soot & unhealthy toxins. Your home stays cleaner too.

  • wondering says:

    Make sure that there is no wind/breeze. Any type of draft/airflow will make your candles burn SUPER fast. There are glass enclosures that you can purchase, such as hurricane lamps, that will ensure the slow burn of your candles. If you are concerned about the scent be to confined, be sure to get an enclosure that is totally open at the top.

    Keep the wick as short as possible. Try to buy "Yankee Candles" or some such brand that keeps the candle inside a glass container – this will stabilize the flame and allow shorters wicks/smaller flames. Also, because these candles keep their wax "pooled" in the container, they last much longer. If you want to burn candles that are fragrant, never use candlestick candles – these are decorative and have virtually no lifespan.

  • marvin says:

    Block any wind so that the flame is stable. Then don’t allow the wax to drip away. If it keeps in a puddle then it will burn longer.

  • hummersathome says:

    The first thing to do with a new candle is cut the wick down. I buy Yankee candles and they are very expensive but I like them. Lately, I have tried soy candles which seem to last longer.

    You did not mention what type of candles you buy but that might have something to do with how fast they burn. Also, keep your candle away from a draft or a/c vent or window.

    I have tried other brands of candles and I always find I have wasted money because the scent does not last as well as Yankee Candle. If you have another one, I would like to know so I can try it. Thanks
