Tealight Beeswax Candles (Refills) | 4-5hr Burn Time



H: ~ 1.6 cm
W: ~ 3.7 cm

Burn Time: 4 - 5 hours

Material: The purest Australian beeswax available

Wick: Pure Cotton

Note: A tealight candle MUST be burned in a tealight cup or the wax will run to the edge of the container you're burning it in.

Burn Time Requirement

Whilst our tealight candles can be lit multiple times, a tealight candle is really designed to be burned in one sitting.

You'll find you get the best performance if you let them burn until they reach the edge of the cup before blowing them out (approx. 2-3 hours). 

In order to consume every last drop of beeswax, you'll need a minimum of 6mm of wax in the bottom of the cup.

Tips for Better Burning

Our candles purify the air you breathe - so much so, you'll literally be able to see the dirt in the pool of wax (the larger the candle, the larger the pool of wax, the easier it will be to notice).  If you live near major thoroughfares, bush land, building or renovation works, it will be particularly noticeable.

As the wick draws the wax (and dirt) towards the base of the wick, the dirt that is small enough to be drawn up the wick will clog the top of the wick (which will appear grey, like ash) and the dirt that is too large will gather at the base of the wick making it difficult for the wick to draw wax the next time you light your candle. 

To fix this problem, either move the dirt from the base of the wick with whatever utensil you're using to dip your wick, OR when you relight your candle, hold the lighter to the base of the wick for a little longer until you can see that the wax at the base of the wick has warmed (which means it is then accessible for the wick)
