FAQ's


Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Q: How long is the burn time on Pearl Street Lights candles?

A: While candles may vary slightly, the burn time on out 5 oz candle is between 30 - 40 hours, our 10 oz candles burn between 60-80 hours and our 15 oz candles burn over 90 to 120 hours.

 

Q: What types of oils do you use?

A: We use a blend of fragrance oils specifically designed to add fragrance to your home. The reason why we do not use essential oils is because essential oils burn off when the candle is burning and do not fragrance a room. (That is why some candles smell really good in the container, but when you burn them, you can't smell them.) We are committed to making candles that fragrance your home so we are constantly looking for and developing more non-toxic fragrance blends for you needs.

 

Q: Help! My candle keeps flickering and then going out!

A: The is most likely caused by a wick that is too long. After the first time you light your candle, make sure to trim your wick to 1/4 inch long. If the wick is too long, it will try to pull up too much wax and it will have difficulty staying lit. The easiest way to trim your wick is to use your thumb and forefinger to pinch off any excess wick until it is about 1/4 inch across. More tips and tricks for candle burning can be found here.
