Beeswax Advent Pillar Candles from The Cottage Stillroom
Since the Middle Ages, beeswax candles have been treasured for their clear flame and honey-sweet smell. Let this gracious light bless your home or church this Advent with a set of Beeswax Advent Pillar Candles from The Cottage Stillroom.
Hand-poured in the Virginia workshop of Aline Bowles, these candles will illuminate a beautiful, hopeful Advent. These handsome pillars would make a gorgeous display a table, hearth, or altar Advent wreath.
Each set include five taper candles (three purple, one rose, and one cream). Pillars are available in 6" or 12" heights. All pillars are 1.5" in diameter.
Note: Over time, pure beeswax products may develop a whitish "bloom." This bloom does not affect the way a candle burns and is simply a natural process of the softer oils of the beeswax rising to the outside surface. Many people like the appearance of the bloom, but if you prefer, you can clean it from your candle with hosiery or a soft cloth.
Dimensions: 1.5 x 6 inches or 1.5 x 12 inches
6-inch Set (5 candles) 1.87 pounds
12-inch Set (5 candles) 3.75 pounds
ABOUT THE CREATOR
The Cottage Stillroom began in 1981 when Aline Bowles was introduced to the centuries-old craft of hand-pouring beeswax into tin "tube and funnel" molds. There was an immediate bonding with the art form of the age-old French processes and the use of that wonderful substance. Aline felt heart-ties with this art form that soon resulted in the formation of the business she now owns and operates. The kindly affection she had for the old techniques experienced early in her exploration has not been diminished over the years. It is her conviction that there is much to be preserved and shared with others of the quality found in hand-producing a product of quality using completely natural raw materials. That is the driving force behind much of what goes on at The Cottage Stillroom today.
