Self-Extinguishing Coil Candle

By Candle by the Hour

Starting at $27.95 More on the way

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 suiters 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 We did away with the outdated ritual, but kept the beautiful design.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
  • Dimensions: 48 Hour Vertical: 8.8" x 3.3" x 3.3" diameter; 48 Hour Horizontal: 6.9" x 6.9" x 3.5" diameter; 80 Hour Vertical: 10.6" x 5" x 5" diameter; 80 Hour Horizontal: 7.8" x 8" x 4.6" diameter

Classic, Interesting and Smells Great

by

This product was a gift for my wife. She loved the look, scent and concept. It is not accurate to the minute and threading the candle without damaging it can be done if you are not fast and furiously doing so.
It will add interest wherever you place it and is perfect for colonial or antique decor.

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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
