So unique

10/5/2018 by Nina

I bought the horizontal candle (48 hr) because it looked so unique. It's on my dining table to light when I partake in my meals. It is usually the first thing that draws my guests's attention who find it as fascinating as myself. At first I was worried that the beeswax candle itself would break as you pry it lose from the holder and then up through. But it is very malleable. I love this candle and think that it is priced very reasonably for it's uniqueness. I ordered the spare coil at the same time. I hope they will still be available when I need to reorder.


Very unique

I have been looking for bees wax type candles for a long time. When I saw this candle I was impressed not only by the unique design but that you can set the burn time as well.
The antique copper finish gives a great designers flare to the piece too.


Great and beautiful

This candle burns without dripping or smoking, and it puts itself out. You can set it where you want it to extinguish and it does. I love it. I had one like it many tears ago in Sweden where I grew up.

I purchased that as a gift for my daughter-in-law for a house warming gift. Beautiful and very unique candle that will add to any décor.


Finally, a "safe" candle

I absolutely love this candle. My Granddaughter loved it too. She and her husband have a 15 month old boy and I felt very comfortable lighting it with him around. You can light it, determine how long it will burn and it extinguishes itself. I got one for her too..she loves to burn candles. Now she has a new "safe" candle that she can light and forget.


Great gift

Stylish and smart

As a new mom,I’m extremely forgetful. This offers piece of mind because it puts itself out after about an hour. It’s also very good-looking.


Love these!

attractive and pragmatic

I bought this as a surprise gift for my wife and she loves it. The attractive metal holder makes it a nice mantel piece and the candle can be used for a romantic candlelit dinner without worrying about blowing it out.

The Candle by the Hour Story

Candle by the Hour | The Grommet

“Self-Timed” Beeswax Candles

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.
