Energize your senses with our beautiful, authentic Santa Rosa church candles, handmade in Mexico. Stamped in gold with the name of the patron saint of the workshop, they are hand poured and tinted with amber for a luxurious amber jaune glow. Unscented, practical, useful, handmade and well-made. Our candles are wrapped and never handled in a retail shop setting.
Cottage Catalog's Santa Rosa Candles have been featured in Martha Stewart Living.
Santa Rosa Candles are made in the timeless, labor-intensive tradition of hand pouring the wax over wicks hooked on a large circular candle wheel. If you look at the bottom of a large candle, you will see circles like a tree trunk. This is how many times the wax was poured around the wick to create the desired diameter. The candles are completely made by hand, not dipped by a machine. They have American wicks for cleaner burning.
Santa Rosa Candles are a blend of paraffin and beeswax, handmade with natural ingredients, and vary in color with each batch. They will darken with age and exposure to light and air. Sizing is approximate. Dimensions may vary 1/8" - 1/4". Call us if you need an exact size and we will try to find just what you are looking for. We have many more sizes available than offered here - please ask us. We are happy to order custom sizes. Reminder: Never leave a burning candle unattended.
