Does adding salt to a candle make it burn longer?

I recently saw a survival blog article stating that adding salt to a candle makes it last longer.


I had to pause my morning scroll and investigate this further. Could the words, “last longer” be used in reference to something other than a pill?


Turns out yes. And as someone who has made a few candles, I was intrigued. But that led to other questions.


Does adding salt to a candle really make it burn longer? And if so, can I just add it to all my candles to make them burn forever?
