Candle by the hour

So unique I love them


We Love them

We got them to give for Christmas Presents and from what we have seen, we think they will be a big hit. I always strive to find something Unique. and I think I found it this year, from The Grommet.
Shopping The Grommet was easy and wonderful, and there shipping was on time. Good job.


fun new 'take' on antie

I just saw an 1800's version of this in an apartment I rented in Italy. I absolutely fell in love with it. The day after I returned, there it was....all updated...for the happiest candle around. All our guests love it and it is a real conversation piece.


And I'm not nuts about candles.

I'm not nuts about candles, but this one is unique. I love it when my "kids" (40's) come in to the house and find something that is unique and this fills that requirement very well. It is not wildly practicle but it is unique and that's what I like.


Always looking for something uinique

I love something in my home that is unique and I'm not going to find everywhere I look and here it is! There are candles that will burn for hours without being fiddled with, but this one starts conversations it is so different from any other.
Service was prompt and it arrived in great condition. I'm happy!

Illuminating physically and spiritually

I was on the fence I thought it was more of a novelty piece boy was I wrong. I’m a tarot card reader in Houston Texas and depending on the read either a 30min reading or 1 hour reading I use just the right amount of candle wax, my clients know when the candle goes out the reading is over. It’s really a wonderful design and conversation piece. Thank you

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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
