Funeral Candles

Beeswax burns slower than all other waxes and it stores much better than other candle materials, allowing you to burn the candles overall several years of light use.

The cost of candles can usually be a good indicator of the type of quality that you will receive.  We pride ourselves on being able to offer the best quality candles available on the market.  These are made by chandlers with over 150 years of candle making experience so you can be sure of a quality product, clean burn with less smoke and also an accurate burning time in optimum conditions.

We are able to offer you a superior range of high quality Beeswax, unbleached candles.  These are suitable and used by many for Funeral and Reqiuem Masses.  Top quality and long burning.

The special symbolic significance of beeswax, which represents the body of Christ, is reflected in our unbleached beeswax candle range. These candles are made using a traditional hand-dipping method, producing a candle with a strong characteristic colour. These candles are used in traditional services and those reflecting more sombre occasions.  These Beeswax, unbleached candles are produced using only the finest pure natural Beeswax for longer, cleaner, and more dependable burning.

 

These are also long symbolic of penitential preparation so are ideal to be used throughout the Lenten Season and during Holy Week.

 

The employment on occasions of sorrow (the Tenebrae, funerals, etc.) of unbleached rather than bleached candles is evidently fitting, since the sombre tones of unbleached wax harmonize with the mournful ceremony, while bleached wax, being far higher in the tone scale, would intrude a note of joy.

In short, it is a traditional manifestation which is consonant with other similarly sombre elements and there is an internal consistency that can be found in these signs and symbols.
