Choosing the Perfect Candle: The 8 oz Candle Advantages

When it comes to candles, they come in various sizes, containers, and styles. At Summerfield Candle Co., we offer all-natural soy candles in 8 oz and 12 oz sizes. While our range may seem similar to others in the market, there's something special about our 8 oz tin candles that keeps them a perennial favorite.


So, why are 8 oz candles consistently popular? They strike a balance between affordability and burn time. Most candles provide around 5-6 hours of burn time per ounce, depending on factors like wax type, wick size, additives, and container. An 8 oz candle offers an impressive average burn time of 40-50 hours, making it both cost-effective and long-lasting. It's an ideal choice for those who enjoy switching up their home scents.



The popularity of 8 oz candles in the market can be attributed to several key factors:


  1. Affordability: 8 oz candles strike a balance between size and cost. They are often more budget-friendly compared to larger candle sizes like 12 oz or 16 oz. This affordability makes them accessible to a wide range of consumers.


  1. Burn Time: One of the essential considerations for candle buyers is burn time. Customers want to ensure they get value for their money. While the burn time of a candle depends on various factors like wax type and wick size, 8 oz candles generally offer a satisfactory burn time, typically ranging from 40 to 50 hours. This makes them a practical choice, as they provide extended enjoyment of the candle's fragrance.


  1. Versatility: 8 oz candles are versatile in terms of where they can be used. They're suitable for various room sizes, from smaller spaces like bathrooms and bedrooms to larger living areas. Their size makes them adaptable for different settings, making them an attractive option for many consumers.


  1. Gifting: 8 oz candles are a popular choice for gift-giving. Their size is substantial enough to make a thoughtful and visually appealing gift, yet they remain affordable. This makes them a go-to option for occasions like birthdays, holidays, and housewarming parties.


  1. Storage and Display: Due to their moderate size, 8 oz candles are easy to store and display. They fit well on shelves, mantles, and tabletops without taking up too much space. This convenience makes them a practical choice for consumers with limited storage or those looking to create aesthetically pleasing home décor.


  1. Scent Variety: Manufacturers often offer a wide range of scents in the 8 oz size, allowing customers to experiment with different fragrances without committing to a larger candle.


The popularity of 8 oz candles can be attributed to their affordability, reasonable burn time, versatility in usage, variety of scents, suitability for gifting, ease of storage, and ability to cater to different preferences and settings. All these factors combined make them a consistent bestseller in the candle market.
