Our merlot scented 3 x 3 pillar candles are great for decorating around your home, in restaurants, hotels, or churches. Burning these scented candles will add a relaxing ambiance to the room as well as make it smell delicious. Always burn these 3 inch candles on a holder or heat resistant surface to avoid damage to your table when the flame gets to the bottom. These short candles are made out of paraffin wax and have a cotton fiber wick. Burn the candle long enough for the liquid pool to to almost reach the edge then extinguish the flame. Allow the wax to cool before relighting it again. Doing this will maximize the length of time your candle will burn and allow it to use up nearly all the wax.
