Rolled beeswax candle (Ave Maria)
These hand rolled candles are made at a little candle shop in San Diego from which my mother always used to buy her advent candles. They specialize in beeswax and these are 100% beeswax.
Directions for Use
(Handle with Care)
To preserve the artwork on the candle burn no longer than 30 minutes to 1 hour at a time. The wax will burn down the center, also called “tunneling” and the outer rim will be preserved. Begin by burning candle 45 minutes and no longer than 1 hour making sure there is a solid rim ranging ½” - ¾”. Burn time will vary. Blow candle out and let wax harden. Keep wick trimmed at ¼”. When the candle becomes difficult to light you can use a wooden skewer or long match to reach the wick. When the candle is successfully tunneled a small tea light can be placed inside.
The image is created with non-toxic ink but should still not be melted into the pool of wax. Always put candle on a candle holder or proper surface.
(~burn candle 30 mins to 1 hr~)

I give my heart to Yours and Your mother’s most immaculate heart this very moment and pray for my intention. That You will look upon this need which I so yearn to take to You and leave in Your hands. Please hear my prayer and grant it if it be Your most holy will. Amen.
