"...feels like a power circle in the middle of the woods!"
These candles represents our platonic ideal of a candle with regard to both form and function. They're wide with a robust wick and cast a golden light. The 4.5 inch is the stout entry to this series, preferred by scribes and dwarves of the mountain with a 100-120 hour burn time. The 6.5 inch is not only one of our most beautiful candles, it has enough bee-produced energy to last an entire season with a burn time of 160-180 hours. The 8.5 inch is a tall marvel and when coupled with the other pillars makes a gorgeous triple-tiered formation.

WHY BUY/BURN BEESWAX?
Beeswax burns longer than other waxes. It cleans and purifies the air and leaves a pleasant scent. It has a beautiful glow with a kind of halo around the flame. By buying beeswax candles you are supporting the welfare of bees, a critical pollinator for the human food supply.
The ancient god Mithras was of Persian/Zoroastrian origin, a protector of truth and a god of illumination who was later incorporated into a mystery cult in ancient Rome. It is thought that beeswax candles first made an appearance in the west during Roman Mithraic mystery rituals. His symbol frequently involves a lion, sometimes with a bee in its mouth, which we have adopted.
