  How Can I Increase Votive Burn Time?

The burn time of any candle is a combination of the wax formula and the wick size used. To increase burn time, you may want to try using a smaller wick and raising the melt point of the wax. Raising the melt point of the wax can be done by going to the next higher melt point wax or by increasing the amount of an additive used such as C-15 or Vybar 103 and/or a Microcrystalline wax. When doing this, ensure that you continue to get complete burning out to the sides of the candle.
