“Self-Timed” Beeswax Candles

This coiled beeswax candle lets you set how long it burns. The wick burns 20 minutes per every inch that you pull through the clip, then it’ll put itself out. Its beeswax and cotton wick is eco-friendly, too. The design was part of the 1600s dating scene. Known as a “courting candle”, protective parents would light one to limit the time prospective suiters could spend with their daughters. Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
