Beautifully quaint

I had never seen a self-extinguishing candle, so that alone made it special. The look of it with copper hardware is just beautiful - a look of yesteryear so popular today. It truly is a conversation piece as well!


Very creative gift.

A very fun gift as well as a great conversation piece. Excellent customer service in ordering and shipping. Needed this gift for Mother’s Day and was shipped in plenty of time.


I love these

After I bought two for myself I bought two more 4 gifts. I'm so glad I saw these. They will make great gifts. Plus we can get refills. They are a conversation peace. I love the backstory that came with the product smart idea.

I love this candle. Everyone who sees it asks about it. If it's not lit, they don't realize it's a candle. It works exactly as it is supposed to...extinguishes by itself.

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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
