Slender, 1/2" diameter beeswax tapers are an elegant alternative to the standard candle size. This listing is for 8" tall tapers. These candles also come in 12" length.

Handmade, one at a time, by me in my Hudson Valley NY studio. Beautiful beeswax candles have a natural honey scent, burn longer and brighter than other types of wax candles, and are considered “dripless,” if burned correctly, undisturbed, away from any drafts, and in a properly sized holder appropriate for burning candles. There is no guarantee that beeswax candles will not drip or run, so appropriate precautions should be taken to avoid melted beeswax getting on tablecloths, surfaces, etc.

This listing is for ONE pair of 8" x 1/2" candles in the color of your choice.

Tapered candles in first picture are shown in "Ivory.”

- Listing is for one pair of 8" x 1/2" taper candles.
- 100% natural beeswax from established northeast US beekeepers.
- Organic cotton wick.
- Each pair burns approximately 10 hours.
- Smokeless, relatively “dripless” when correctly burned, and non-allergenic.
- Handmade candles have naturally occurring imperfections that enhance their rustic loveliness, so please allow for some inconsistencies.
- Ivory and yellow candles are un-dyed, un-bleached, pure filtered beeswax.
- Colored candles are dyed with eco-friendly, non-toxic dyes. Note that colors may appear slightly different in person due to variations in computer monitors. Colors may also vary slightly from batch to batch.
- Handmade candles have naturally occurring imperfections that enhance their rustic loveliness. Please allow for minor inconsistencies.

After the USPS lost the first package, the second attempt arrived days earlier than expected! The candles are gorgeous, and I finally can use my lovely Carl Christensen candelabra as part of the centerpiece. Elizabeth included a sweet little heart freebie, probably due to the long wait and postal trouble (totally not her fault, tho!) I'll definitely be coming back for more when these run low.

Beautiful, as always! A perfect complement to the candle holders we bought from Elizaville Beeswax as well!

Beautiful candles! They’ve managed to work perfectly for an oddly sized vintage candleholder that it’s been impossible to source candles to fill.

The beeswax candles are the perfect size for my candle holders. Most candles are too large, so I crossed my fingers these would be the correct size, and they are. Thank you. Fast shipping and thorough packaging.
