NEW PRICES FOR OUR DIPPED CANDLES:
Although the price of beeswax has steadily increased in the past ten years, we have endeavored to keep our prices down and have maintained the same prices since 2008. We are no longer able to absorb this extra cost and thus for the first time in over a decade, we have been forced to raise our candle prices. The new prices are:
Per pound $12
Church discount for pounds $11
Bulk discount $10
Although the price of the wax has increased 55%, the price increase for the candles is only about 10%.
We will continue to do our best to keep supplying you with the finest pure beeswax candles at the most economical price we can.
Our candles are made from 100% pure beeswax, the traditional substance for candles used in Orthodox churches. Pure beeswax candles burn with an aromatic fragrance like that of honey. They are crafted by repeated dipping until the desired thickness has been achieved. By such dipping we obtain slender candles which nevertheless burn for a considerable time. These candles are also less apt to drip than candles cast in molds and, unlike paraffin candles, beeswax candles do not produce a smoky film. Our candles are therefore especially recommended to churches with extensive mural icons or frescos.
For churches wishing to order in quantity, we offer candles T001 through T005 in bulk boxes at a discounted price. Please inquire.
We also can make custom sized candles for churches who can order in quantity. Please inquire.
