These tins are so great! They're the perfect travel candle, we love to pack them anytime we're staying in a hotel or unfamiliar place. They'll remind you of home, and enhance the environment you're in! The metal vessels have footed bases, so you don't have to worry about damaging furniture. The lid snaps on easily to extinguish the flame. Within about 30 minutes, your candle is ready to be packed and on the road again! This small, 4 oz. candle will burn slowly and efficiently for more than 1 full day of your life [20-30 hours], based on a 1-2 hour burn time.
