What size are you candles?
Jade: Hi @sekirsch!
Jackpot’s standard size for the classic soy wax glass jar candles is 12 ounces. What that means in candle-speak is that you get approximately 80 hours of burn time if you follow best candle practices like:
trimming your wick to around 1/4” before each burn
letting the surface of the candle melt fully during the first burn
never burning your candle for more than four hours at a time.
When you follow these simple tips each time you ensure a safe, efficient burn which results in less wasted wax when your wick is gone and the max amount of dreamy, candlelit moments!
To make sure you get the most burn for your buck, Jackpot candles are made with 100% soy wax, which is longer lasting than many other paraffin wax alternatives. Paired with our high-quality wood and cotton wicks, everything about your candle is made to ensure an optimum experience.
Did you know that we also carry several of our candle scents in an 8-ounce travel tin size?
Jackpot’s travel tin soy wax candles come in a convenient travel container with a secure lid so you can safely take a candle along for comfort when you travel to make any space feel like home. Here’s the best thing about our travel sized candles: they come with a jewelry surprise, just like our regular sizes candles do!
Thanks for your question, @sekirsch!
How many scented candles should I burn in my room?
Jade: Hi Jaquie,
I love this question because only a true candle lover worries about how many candles are too many. I’ve been there! The answer to your question depends on the size of your room and the size of the candles.
If you’re trying to figure out how many candles to burn in your room at once, there are a couple of things to keep in mind.
The 8 x 10 Rule
If your goal is to make sure that the fragrance of your scented candle spreads through the room, then follow the 8 x 10 rule. That means for every 10 sq feet of room, you need one 8-ounce scented candle.
Community spaces like your kitchen or living room may need more candles or larger candles for full coverage. Jackpot’s scented candles are 12 ounces and will cover a larger space with your favorite scent.
If your room is big enough that light more than one candle at a time, make sure to do so safely. Always place candles out of reach of kids and pets, and away from anything flammable. Make sure to blow out each of the candles when you leave the room and that you don’t burn any for more than four hours at a time.
Thanks for your question, Jaquie.
I hope this helped!
