Our Soy Wax Votive Candles burn up to 12-16 hrs! What a treat! Make sure to burn them in a snug fitting jar like the one seen in the picture. (Sorry the jars are not included but can be purchased separately). Votive Candles are meant to be lit in small to medium rooms such as a bathroom, small to medium bedroom 10x10 or 12x12 or a small kitchen. For larger rooms try our wax cube melts, wax brittle melts in an aroma lamp for best results.
