Pure Beeswax Candles
All of our candles are made of 100% pure beeswax. They are all strung, dipped, and packaged by hand. We also haul, melt, and strain all the wax ourselves. All our work is dedicated to God through obedience and prayer. The proceeds from your order go to the sustenance of our monastic community and the building of our new monastery enclosure.
Please contact us if you have any questions. We thank you for your support, and may God save and bless you.
We now sell Thee Kings Charcoal! Three Kings is the world’s best known, highest quality quick-lighting charcoal. The tablets ignite immediately and burn evenly for a long time, without giving off any odor or smoke.
