Marklin Candle Design offers candles of unbleached beeswax, especially suitable for Lent. Stripped of pretense, these hand-dipped altar candles mirror the sacrifices that Christians make through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. These 51% beeswax candles provide a clean and aromatic burn that will fill your church with the light and aroma that anticipates the resurrection.
Each and every Marklin candle is molded by hand and then over-dipped for a blemish-free appearance. Every step of our process — from pouring the molds to tying a knot in the wick to decorating—echoes the words of the American Bishops when they write in Built of Living Stones that everything used in worship should "bear the stamp of the artist".
We have long believed that a candle produced from a mold provides a better burning candle than one extruded from a press. Therefore, we have developed a process by which we could mold a beeswax candle, a technique not commercially used because of its inherent difficulties.
Our altar candles are intended to be burned with a follower. Candles are shipped plain end unless otherwise requested.
