Advent Beeswax Candles
We will start to make our Advent candles in October.
To mark the passage of the four weeks of Advent, we have made two special sets of candles.
A tradition that was thought to have started in 1839 by a pastor in Germany. He put out 24 red candles and 5 white candles on a old cart wheel. Each day a small red candle was lit and a white candle each Sunday, counting down the Advent season.
Over time, the tradition was changed within different religions to include a wreath and the violet and pink colours, which we make.
The set of three violet/purple and one rose candle is available in our long burn set, (30 hours each). You can also add a natural beeswax candle as the fifth “Christ” candle to burn on Christmas Day/Sundays to celebrate.
All the candles are made from our local bees wax which we then colour with natural based dyes. You will love the bright, “happy” flame and the subtle, honey, aroma. A lovely way to mark Advent.
