Christmas gift
Poor packaging.

I like the candle and it was as I expected, however, the packaging was poor. The styrofoam to hold the candle in place was in pieces and had to be vacuumed out before gifting it. It was quite a mess.
AMAZING

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 We did away with the outdated ritual, but kept the beautiful design.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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
