Frequently asked questions

  • What is the lifespan of an Africandle?
  • Depending on the size of the candle the burntime (if left to burn non-stop) is around  48-hours. This is for our smallest candle. 

  • Can I top-up my Africandle once the wax is finished?
  • Regrettably no; however, we suggest repurposing the cement base once it is finished. Some of our clients like to use the base as a plant holder, others like to crush the base and return it to the earth. 

  • How do I ensure the best burn experience for my candle?
  • It all starts with the first (and most important) burn. Make sure that your first burn lasts at least two to three hours. This creates a good start point for subsequent burns and ensures the longevity of your candle.  

  • What areas can an Africandle be shipped to?
  • Currently, you can get hold of an Africandle in Canada and it can be shipped to our neighbors in North America. Should you be further abroad please contact us at so that we can discuss your options.
