The advent wreath represents eternity and the 4 candles are a sign of hope. Traditionally, the wreath has 3 violet candles and 1 rose candle. Each candle has its own symbolic meaning: hope, faith, joy and peace. Some people add a 5th candle in the centre of the wreath. This 5th candle, known as the Christ candle, is traditionally white and represents love in its purest form.
Our candles are pure beeswax with 100% cotton (no lead or zinc) wicks. They are not only beautiful but they also clean your air - especially important in the depths of winter when our windows are all closed. You may notice a "bloom" on your candle. This bloom is a sign of purity - only 100% beeswax candles will develop a bloom. If you wish, you can wipe away the bloom if you prefer a more polished appearance.
You can purchase advent candles as singles - in your choice of pearl, rose or violet. Advent candles are also available in sets: 4 pearl candles or 3 violet and 1 rose candle.
