"There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort" ~ Jane Austen
Though Austen was home-educated and never travelled outside England, she was one of the most popular writers of her time. She is beloved for her comedic romantic novels and social commentary.

How long do Paddywax candles burn? The burn time of our candles varies depending on the vessel and the environment in which the candle is burning. But as a rule of thumb: every 28g of wax gives 6-7 hours of burn time. So a 170g candle would last up to 43 hours.
What are the best practices for burning my new Paddywax candle? Make sure you burn your candle for 3-4 hours the first time around. You want to make sure your wax pool extends to both ends of the vessel before extinguishing. This will avoid tunnelling. You should also be sure to trim your wick to 5mm.
How do I get the last 5mm of wax out of my container so I can repurpose it? You can either a) put the candle in the freezer overnight and the wax should easily pop out the next day, or b) run hot water into the candle to melt the remaining wax so you can scoop it out.
How do I repurpose the candle vessel after the burn life is over? The possibilities are endless! We've tried everything from a succulent planter, pencil cup, knick knack holder, bathroom canister, and more.
