Sprinkles Glimmer Candle Test

Image

Greetings, fellow candle lovers!  I freely admit, I am a candle addict.  There’s something about the scent and the flickering flame that just instantly makes me feel at peace, and that all is right with the world.  Bad day?  Light a candle.  Raining and gloomy out again?  Light a candle.  Kids and husband driving you up a wall?  Hide in your room, or better yet, the bathtub, and light a candle (or three!).

When I came across these awesome Pink Zebra Sprinkles and saw that I could make my own candle from them, my heart skipped a beat!  I love buying candles and all, but the thought of making my own (choosing the colors/scents) in less than 5 minutes made me feel all excited and crafty!  And we all know how crafty I’m NOT, so this is really saying something!

So I made my own Sprinkles Glimmer Candle and chose vanilla creme for the scent.  I love vanilla scented things, and the Pink Zebra Sprinkles were no exception.  Then I started wondering, how long would one of these mini Sprinkles candles burn?  There’s so much conflicting information out there, so I decided to try it myself and post the results for you…

I started the Pink Zebra Glimmer candle test at 7 pm on a Tuesday night.  Then, after I lit the candle, of course, I realized that I should have waited until the next day to start.  Because really, who starts a candle burn test at 7 pm when they regularly fall asleep on the couch at 9 pm?  Oh well… so in the interest of full disclosure, this candle test was done over two days.  Picture #1, 7 pm on Tuesday when I started, is at the top of this post… look how pretty and glimmery it is!

8 pm pic… I love the “melty” look.  I thought it would melt more rapidly after this point,

10 pm pic… yes, I was still awake.  After I took this picture I blew out the candle and went to bed (or back to bed, as I had fallen asleep on the couch watching TV…)

8:20 am Wednesday pic… liquidy candle returned to its solid state.  And look, no icky black residue on the jar.  LOOOOVE that Sprinkles are soy!

10:20 am pic… still going strong!  Go Sprinkles Go!

12:20 pm pic… really?!  Still burning at 7 hours in?  Holy cow!

I took 3 more pics between 12:20 pm and 5:30 pm when I stopped the test.  I got almost to the bottom, but not quite.  I think I read somewhere that you shouldn’t burn a candle completely to the bottom.  Don’t know if it’s true or not, but that’s the way I’ve always done it!  So, here’s the 5:30 pm picture…Image

So, my Pink Zebra Glimmer candle test results are as follows:  1/2 jar of Sprinkles in a mini candle holder burned for 12 hours!  So that means a full jar of Sprinkles could burn for about 24 hours!  As my girl Penny on The Big Bang Theory says… “Holy crap on a cracker!”  And did you see… no black soot on the jar!  That’s a definite plus to using soy Sprinkles!  And my living/dining room smelled AWESOME!  

So the next time you’re feeling stressed, or just want your home to smell great, make yourself a Pink Zebra Glimmer candle, light it, and chill out!  I have over 50 scents (so you don’t have to go all boring vanilla like me!) and several styles of jars to choose from, like these cute little martini glasses…  just click on the Shop My Site pic on the side there or contact me directly!

Take care everyone!
