It’s always important to burn your candle correctly, preventing tunnelling and making sure you get the most out of your Yankee Candle. In this blog we aim to give you that essential know how to make sure you take the best care of your favourite Yankee Candle.

First things first what are the burn times for different wax types?

  • Large Jar 110-150 hours
  • Medium Jar 70-90 hours
  • Small Jar 25-40 hours
  • Large Pillar 65-80 hours
  • Small Pillar 45-60 hours
  • Votives 15 hours
  • Tea Lights 6 hours each
  • Tart 8 hours each
The typical wax burn times vary, due to the conditions in which it is burned. If you light your candle in an area with minimal draft, and protect it with an illumalid you are more likely to get the upper end of the hours stated out of your candle.
