    A few weeks back I picked up a few of these unscented jar candles and one burned for a bit over two weeks the other just under two weeks. Not bad, made in Mexico and I will pick up a few more 4 stores around but only 2 have the candles so if you look for them YMMV

    Bulk Glass Jar Candles, 8" at DollarTree.com
    ........................................................................................................................................
    Tall glass jar candles are ideal for sanctuary candles, candlelight vigils, and other spiritual practices. Unscented white wax is enclosed in a tall glass jar and designed to burn continuously over long periods of time, up to 80 hours depending upon burning conditions. Case includes 12 – 8" glass jar candles (poured wax measures 6½"H).

    I do believe the Chinese place the tears of young, virgin slaves in the wax to make the flame burn brighter. It's a special reaction with the lead and phosphorous, in case you're wondering.

    Was wondering what made them so bright---virgin tears huh--lol. We have a candle factory in the neighboring town and a bud is the "tester"/shipping supervisor. Occasionally I get a case of slightly used candles.
