Our 100% pure beeswax cylinders are amazingly long lasting and have a naturally beautiful color with the slight scent of honey. These refulgent cylinders make excellent emergency lighting with the 9 inch burning over 6 days long! Please keep burning cylinders away from pets and young children for safety reasons. Check them every 1–2 hours and trim the wick to 3/8 inches for maximum burn time. Use caution when trimming a “cap” from the end of the wick since it is a hot ember and may leave a burn mark if it falls on a flammable surface. Let the cylinder burn until the wax pool is close to the edge (5-6 hours) to avoid burning a hole down the center of the cylinder. To extinguish, push the wick into the wax pool with a non-flammable object, then straighten the wick. Blowing out the candle may splatter the wax and leave it smoking.
