This 3 x 12 plum pillar candle is made by dipping a white core into unscented colored wax. The candle is white on the inside with a layer of color on the outside. When the candle is burned eventually you will see white around the top where the wax has melted. Our unscented pillar candles are often used to decorate at elegant events or in hotels, restaurants, and churches. Because they do not have a fragrance these scent free candles can be burned without worrying about bothering guests with allergies. 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.
