You can increase the burning hours you get from a tinned candle by burning it correctly.  Failure to do so will definately lead to reduced burning time and your candle will just not burn properly!

1) Always trim the wick to 5mm (1/4inch) prior to lighting.  If the wick is too long it will pull up the wax too quickly and it will not melt to the edge of the tin.  You will get a hole down the middle of your candle!

2) Always let the candle surface liquify to the edge of the tin.  This usually takes 2 - 3 hours but does differ across different fragrances.  If you just light your candle for a few minutes you will get a hole through the middle and the wax will not burn properly.

3) If the wick starts to smoke (gutter) during burning then it has got too long.  Blow out the candle and allow to set.  Trim the wick and start again.  This is what causes soot to be produced.

4) Do not burn the candle near a heat sourc (radiator or fire), in a draught or under anything and don't leave it burning unattended.

5) Stop burning the candle when there is 5mm wax left in the bottom.  If you leave it until the very end there is a slim chance that the wax will ignite but it's not worth the risk!

6) Having said all this, there are some fragrances which do leave a shell of wax round the edge of the tin.  This does not mean that you won't get the correct number of burning hours from the candle, it  is just a difference is different colours and perfumes of wax.  If you burn the candle correctly then you should get 30-35 hours burning time.

Lily-Flame candles are made in Glastonbury, Somerset in the U.K. by Jo and Luc. The range of Lily-Flame candles are one of the few that we have found that match the quality and strength of fragrance that are achieved by Yankee Candles. These incredibly pretty tinned candles will burn cleanly for up to 45Hrs while delivering a strong fragrance through out the burning period. Each tinned Lily-Flame candle is beautifully finished with contrasting coloured chunks of wax placed around the edge of the candle, and for that extra touchy feely quality have an embossed label  with the fragrance name and a wonderfully written description of the fragrance by Jo of  Lily-Flame.

Lily-Flame candles smell great - Hours or perhaps days go into the preparation of our Lily-Flame scents, using the skills of the UK's best perfumers. We have lots of samples made up and whittle them down to the very best using 'blind testing' and burning tests to judge which scent gives the best 'throw' (sending the scent into your room's atmosphere). Sorry- have we spoilt all the mystery and romance for you?

Lily-Flames range also includes a number of aromatherapy candles which are cool, contemporary, unique and fun. Created to add colour and balance to your life. Choose from  Calm, Sensual, Relax, or Vitalise and let Lily-Flames aromatic scents wash away the stresses from a hectic day. Lily-Flames handmade aromatherapy candles use expertly blended 100% pure essential oils. These Lily-Flame candles are designed to achieve maximum effect by using a very low melting point wax, releasing the essential oils into your room's atmosphere.
