This is a handmade botanical candle made of a beeswax paraffin blend by Rosy Rings, Inc. of Denver, CO. I am offering pillar candles in several fragrances. This is LEMONGRASS. It will burn down the middle leaving a combination of lime slices and bamboo shoots intact. It has and exotic scent combining Sicilian lemon with a strong green top note and gives off a warm glow as it burns. The candle is 4.5" x 4.5" x 5.5" square pillar. The burn time is 150 hours; shipping weight 4 #. The botanical candles are made with a separate wax insert, or core, which is wrapped in flame retardant paper. The paper is semi-transparent and does not affect the glow or the burning attributes of the candle.
This candle will also make the perfect hostess gift. I also carry SPICY APPLE, DAMASK ROSE, OCEANIA, APPLE PEAR, HONEYSUCKLE ORANGE BLOSSOM and SWEET CITRON pillars. Votives also come in LAVENDER. When the pillar burns down, use it as a candle holder for a votive.
Here are the burn instructions for the pillar candles directly from the company:
We receive many questions from our Reps and customers regarding how long a botanical candle should be first burned to develop a nice well. Basically, the candle well should be 2 1/2" in diameter. When we burn our botanical candles in our test lab, this takes around 8 hours. Please note that there are no outside factors that influence the burn in our test lab such as air conditioning or an open window. If a candle is being burned in a drafty room, the burn time to develop this well will be faster. This first burn is very vital in ensuring a long lasting candle. If the well is not developed, the candle will not have enough oxygen to stay lit and will have a small, narrow opening.
After the well has been established, the candle should be burned for no more than 2-3 hours at a time.
Out of Tennessee purchasers will not pay sales tax.
Shipping of one OR two of these candles will cost the same, so buy one for yourself and one as a gift! You can mix and match with the other candles! You will need to email me, though, for the checkout system does not reflect other than a straight purchase with no discounts. If you want to purchase more than 2, I can ship 2 for the price of one.
