100% natural mullein torches, made from just beeswax and foraged mullein tops, which were hand picked and sun dried. Also called "hag's tapers" or "corpse candles," and used traditionally as altar candles and ritual torches, particularly for works involving spirits of the dead and ancestor veneration. These pillars are free-standing and produce a wide, bright, torch-like flame. 


Best burned on a heat-proof ceramic dish or candle holder, but the flame is not overwhelming. Burns faster than conventional candles, and produces a cozy crackling sound as the seeds within the dried flowers burn. 


Two sizes available, large and small. Small candles are slim and around 4-5", and large candles are thicker and 6-7" in height.
