Details

This innovative, coiled beeswax candle used to be known as a “courting candle.” Back in the 1600’s, protective parents used coiled candles to limit the amount of time prospective suitors could spend with their daughters. We did away with the outdated ritual, but kept the beautiful design. The cotton wick burns 20 minutes per every inch that you pull through the clip. You set the time, and then it’ll actually go out by itself.

  • Materials: Beeswax candle, cotton wick, metal base
  • Care: Trim wax in between use, wipe dust with damp rag when not in use
  • Includes: One candle, metal base with self-extinguishing clip
  • Instructions: Feed the end of the pliable candle into the clip, candle will burn for 20 minutes per inch of candle above the clip, up to three inches at a time. When the candle burns down to the wick, it will self-extinguish
  • Burns 20 minutes per inch
  • Orders of multiple candles or refills may ship separately with no additional charge

Packaging Nightmare

11/30/2018 by Karen

Though I love the product, the packaging left a lot to be desired. I had written before requesting a new box and have not yet received one. I am disappointed. As I stated before, it looked like it had been returned and just thrown in a box. There was styrofoam everywhere, including inside the product. I needed to bring it outside to clean it off. Please send me a new box so I can get this wrapped by Christmas. Thank you.More > < Less

Doesn't live up to its looks

10/28/2018 by Greg

So I have to say I'm not really happy with my purchase. It looks pretty cool and I thought I would try one out and maybe buy some as holiday gifts if I liked it. But the candle needs to be adjusted quite frequently and burns for only minutes at a time before you need to lengthen the candle or let it extinguish. Yes its a cool idea but it burns far too quickly for me to recommend it.More > < Less

Looks better in the pictures

2/24/2018 by Joseph

I found that once I received this, it looked better in the pictures than I did in person. Also, the packaging was not great. The candle was able to shake and move around inside the box. I sent it back for a refund.More > < Less

About Candle by the Hour

“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 suitors could spend with their daughters.

Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
