Tip of the Day: How long will a taper candle burn?

18" Taper Candle Ivory

When Christmas and Thanksgiving arrive, we sell a lot of taper candles. With heights ranging from 6″ to 24″ and a wide color assortment, for two months of the year, it becomes a major category. The one question I have gotten countless times is, “How long will this burn for?”

The answer is simple. The taper candle rule of thumb is burn time will be approximately one hour per inch of candle. So, a 12″ taper will burn for approximately 12 hours. There are many factors that can affect candle burn time such as elevation, air temperature, and humidity. However, this does work well as a general guideline.

Hope this helps!
