  • Low Stock


This ceramic coil candle is known as a “courting candle.” Back in the 1600’s, protective parents supposedly used it to limit the amount of time prospective suitors could spend with their daughters. The ritual is gone but a modern, bamboo-and-ceramic interpretation remains. The cotton wick burns 20 minutes per every inch that you pull through the clip. You set the time, and it will go out by itself.

  • Burns for 20 minutes per inch of candle with a total burn time of 60 hours
  • Self extinguishes
  • Includes a ceramic base and sturdy bamboo stand
  • Please note: Keep out of reach of children
