The candles from St. Andrew’s are all hand-poured and hand-dipped by students, monks and nuns, and other staff. They are 100% Beeswax and though some products have color, most are either natural beeswax or ivory colored (from a process of extreme straining).
The candles burn clean and bright and are long lasting. They are crafted with an absolute commitment to quality and beauty, and we believe will contribute true beauty to worship services and homes alike. Remember, the candles are crafted by hand, in the “old world” method. We do not use machines. This means a remarkable amount of control over our product and also causes slight variation in the end product, giving our candles that “hand made” quality and character.
We regularly produce many of the standard sizes of candles used liturgically. We also have a handful of sizes and shapes most often used at home. We have, however, built many types of candles to fit particular candle sticks. As mentioned above, please call for custom work.
