Bluecorn tapers are classic candles that are hand dipped into pure molten beeswax at just the right temperature by a steady hand and a keen eye. They are dipped and cooled over twenty times each before a pair can be cut free from the oak rack. When finished and hung, they carry the rich scent of honey and seem to hold light in their bellies. Kept out of drafts and away from fans these tapers will burn virtually dripless for about one hour per inch of length. We recommend stocking up on all the lengths in raw to start, or opting for a single length across a variety of colors.
These beeswax tapers burn for one hour per inch. Base diameter = 7/8" or 2.2cm
Trim wick to 1/4" before first lighting only. Average burn time is one hour per inch. To prevent dripping, burn tapers away from open windows, fans or excessive airflow of any kind. Place hand behind the flame when blowing out. To minimize smoking, use a snuffer to extinguish flame. Another trick to prevent dripping is to not trim the wick before re-lightening. Please note that tapers are the only candle type whose wick should not be trimmed before re-lighting.
