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 anticipate 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 wrote, “everything . . . in worship should bear the mark of human hands.”
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.
There are 16 candles per case and 4 candles per carton with the exception of the following two groups of sizes:
