When it comes to burning candles, soy candles are the way to go. Not only do they last longer than traditional candles, but they also burn cleaner and produce less smoke. But just how long does a 4 oz soy candle burn? Let’s find out!

A 4 oz soy candle should burn for roughly 20 hours or more. This is due to the fact that soy wax is slower burning than traditional paraffin wax. Paraffin wax burns faster because of its higher melting point, while soy wax has a lower melting point which means it will take longer to melt and therefore burn slower. This makes soy wax more efficient as you get more bang for your buck in terms of burning time.

So if you’re looking for a candle with a long burn time, look no further than soy candles! They come in all shapes, sizes, and scents so you can find one that perfectly suits your needs. If you’re looking for an even longer burn time, we recommend going up in size from 4 oz to 6 oz or 8 oz. 6-8oz candles have estimated burn times of 30+ and 40+ hours respectively!
