The smallest of our three pillars at 50 mm wide x 75 - 80 mm tall, this beautiful beeswax pillar candle is great value and looks wonderful in a group display.
Pillars are designed for long-burning sessions. The beauty of this pillar is that you don't need to commit to burning it for hours and hours at a time - with its narrower diameter you can burn it as often as you like.
To get the very best out of your pillar, it needs to burn until the melt pool reaches close to the edge of the candle. Burning for shorter periods of time can result in a narrow tunnel burning down the middle of the candle and the wax on the outside of the candle not being consumed.
To extinguish your candle without smoking. use the wood end of a matchstick to push the wick into the melted wax pool, and then stand the wick back up before the wax solidifies, ready to light again.
If your candle has a rim of wax at the top edge when you extinguish it, gently "hug" the candle and push the rim inwards towards the wick while the wax is still warm and pliable. DO NOT attempt to hug your candle while the wick is lit.
Handmade in Hawke's Bay from 100% pure New Zealand beeswax with a cotton wick.
