Scented Candles for Christmas
Frankincense and myrrh are the original Christmas scents, given to the infant Jesus by wise men who had traveled long distances to worship him.
These aromatic resins are obtained from the sap of trees grown near where Jesus was born.
Today we are happy to offer scented votive candles that will light up your Christmas with the ancient aroma of frankincense and myrrh.
Let the spiritual and meditative scent transport you back in time to remember Jesus' birth, the central event of the Christmas season.
A little background...
Our candles are made in the USA with highly refined paraffin wax.
Paraffin wax is a product of the oil refining process and an important commodity with many uses: skin care and therapy, food industry, crayon manufacture, ski and snowboard industry, among many others.
Artisan candlemakers pour liquid paraffin wax into molds to create a solid candle, which lasts longer and burns cleaner than one made with shaved and compressed wax.
The fragrances used are specifically made for wax. They are designed to blend with the wax and "throw" the fragrance throughout a room.
Paraffin was developed in the 1850s and it was a major advance in candlemaking. It burned more cleanly and was less expensive than other candle fuels.
Paraffin wax is non-toxic, and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in food, cosmetics, and medical applications. Food-grade paraffin is commonly used for manufacturing high quality candles.
