I bought this candle for a Christmas gift. I really like it so will probably end up getting myself one after Christmas. Liked it so well I have already bought another self-extinguishing candle for a Christmas gift.

Another great purchase from "The Grommet" and looks great in the home all year through! Have not been dissatisfied with any of the many purchases I've made with "The Grommet" website!


Cool and different.

I think this is a special little item. I love the story behind it, it looks great when it's lit and as a decoration on our fireplace mantle when it's not being used. My teenager uses it to make her homework area more inviting.

I wanted to purchase this item for Christmas for my daughter-in-law. Then I forgot what magazine I had seen the self-extinguishing coil candle in. Silly me, it was my favorite magazine, "The Grommet." When her birthday rolled around, there was no question about what I going to give her. She received the candle and immediately called me to rave about it. She said she has received one as a gift many years ago and would have loved to find another but did not know where to look. Now, we will both be ordering a red one for Christmas. Thank you for a most beautiful gift for me to give to my beautiful daughter-in-law.

The Candle by the Hour Story

Candle by the Hour | The Grommet

Self-Timed Candles

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 candles 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. Read More Read Less
