Candle by the Hour
Beehive Coil Candle

Set the burn time · Cotton wick burns 20 minutes per every inch · Inspired by 1600's tradition



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. Candle by the Hour did away with the outdated ritual, but kept the beautiful design.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.

  • 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

Candle by the Hour

The innovation behind these eye-catching coiled beeswax candles dates back to the 1600’s, proving that sometimes the old way is still the best way. A candle's cotton wick can burn 20 minutes per every inch that you pull through the clip. Once the flame reaches the clip, it will put itself out. The coiled design is based on stories of "Courting Candles" in the 1600's. It is said protective parents would light such a candle to mark how long a suitor could spend with their daughter. While our culture may not need that ritual, Candles by the Hour has preserved the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
