i'm no expert, but i believe the candle inside is made from the excess wax of multiple other candles that you use over time, giving you a free candle every so often...

A some of it does, but a lot of it just melts. Dunno what the burn/melt ratio is, though.

The wax is actually the fuel. when it melts off or evaporates, you're losing it.

That's kinda like saying you can reuse your exhaust as fuel though. after the chemical reaction happens with both gasoline and the candle wax it becomes as different substance that is not often reusable as an energy source.

No, it's like saying that if you had a leak in your gas tank, you should tape a bottle to it to collect all the fuel leaking out, then pour it back in to reuse. The burnt wax is the exhaust, the melted wax that got recaptured in the bottom section is like a leak.

Since when is the wax the **** that burns? I was under the impression that the wax is just there to hold the wick upright.

Some of the wax evaporates, and it's the wax vapors that burn.

To maintain the "pilot light" so to speak, so that a small window of no vapor won't put the candle out. Sort of like the gas candles, you know? Or like how a flame thrower has that tiny little light.

If the wick was the only source of fuel, it would have to burn a lot faster to maintain the fire, and the candle wouldn't last long.

I think, perhaps, the wicks are unconnected (notice lack of singed end) and you merely place the fresh wink suspended from the rim and the wax flows in from holes.

Makes sense, but I've never come across just plain wicks while shopping before. I'm sure it's not just string, it's like soaked in paraffin or something right?

Apparently it's just cotton treated to make it more flame retardant. And you can order them in bulk.

Well, the melted wax travels up the wick and is what makes a candle burn the way it does. So the candle would get smaller and smaller and not be an infinite candle maker.

yeah but it does mean there isn't a bunch of dribbly wav to clean up, and when it gets too small you can make little tea light candles.

I wonder if the case at the bottom comes in varying sizes? Suppose you could make some out of PVC tube if it didn't.

That's really difficult, because you can't exactly push it through or pull it from the end. It's probably not meant for use as a candle, but more for, other reasons.

I'm not able to pay for it, my parents offered. It's a family tradition to go there every 2 or 3 years, so they supported me for it. I really love them. And it sucks if you have nobody to go with. I want to keep the tradition in my family and take my future kids there as well, because it's my most favourite place in the world. I get lost there and my worries just wash away for a while. It's truly perfect.
