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 We did away with the outdated ritual, but kept the beautiful design.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
  • Made in Vietnam

I love this candle. Everyone who sees it asks about it. If it's not lit, they don't realize it's a candle. It works exactly as it is supposed to...extinguishes by itself.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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
