How long can a pillar candle last?

The larger the pillar candle, the longer it will last. From a lower limit of 30 hours to an upper limit that can go beyond 100 hours. It’s always a good idea to light pillar candles for at least 3-4 hours at a time and wait for the wax pool to reach the candle’s rim.

How to Get the Most Out of Pillar Candles?

A good burning technique will ensure a longer burn time and a strong scent throw.

If you want your pillar candle to burn cleanly, without dripping or tunneling, it’s always best to follow some simple guidelines. Burn your scented pillar candles for 3-4 hours each time to get a great scent throw.

Dip the wick inside the wax as opposed to blowing the flame to prevent the candle from emitting smoke. Trim and straighten the black carbon gap of the wick for a better burn the next time.

Tunneling can be avoided in pillar candles if there is no excess wax around the wick. Remove any excess wax from above the wick, as the wick should always be elevated above the melt wax pool. After turning off the candle flame, fold the wax at the border inwards with your fingers to avoid tunneling.


Nothing beats pillar candles for ambient lighting, and they are just as classic and well-liked today as they ever were.
