Both compact and easy to carry, our handmade mini tapers can be used during meditation, on an altar for remembrance, as a call to prayer or simply to grace a dinner table. Every one of these pieces is individually poured by hand, using unbleached Mexican beeswax and pure cotton wicks. Burn time for a single candle is typically around an hour and a half. These tapers are nearly dripless, smokeless and virtually scent-free. They’re sold in bundles of six and are packed in corn husk with natural string.

Artisan
The master artisans that produce these candles have been doing so for three generations in their family workshop. Famed for their ornate traditional beeswax candles with natural dyes, this family also constantly strives to develop new designs that speak to a contemporary audience on a worldwide basis. They dip every one of these beeswax candles by hand. In addition to their candles, this family also also produces handwoven wool rugs and other vibrant tapestries.

Dimensions
Each candle is approximately 10cm long x 1cm on the bottom

Care
Store these pieces in a cool, dry location. Do not leave candles unattended while they are burning. As these mini tapers are hand-poured, the bottoms may be slightly larger than our candle holders. In this case, you can simply cut a small bit of the edge with a knife to fit, in order to fit the candles into the piece. It is also recommended to melt the wax at the base of the candle for a moment before inserting into candle holder, to ensure a secure fit.
