I already own this candle and absolutely love it! I bought this for my son in law because every time he comes to my house he threatens to take it with him. I thought he would love to have his own!!
Had high hopes.

Looks good in the picture, but the real thing is, unfortunately, very cheap looking.
Cool Candle

Love shopping on Grommet! Unique and awesome gifts! Don’t know what to gift someone, shop at Grommet! Bought these for Christmas presents for family members that are “hard to buy for”! Can’t wait to see their reaction when they open them!

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 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 We did away with the outdated ritual, but kept the beautiful design.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.

Candle by the Hour

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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
