48 Hour Beeswax Candle
A neat spin on and old concept. News to me, many people were calling it a curfew candle. The story behind them reads:
The candle was developed in the 1600's. America had and abundance of beeswax which they twisted into rope candles. These candles were called courting candles. The courting candle became a parents way of timing how long a young gentleman suitor spent with their daughter. The candle burn time would be set by placing a cut into the candle. The long rope went to a choice suitor, all others got the "short" rope.
Approximately 48 hour burn time, about 20 minutes per inch. The candle extinguishes when it reaches the clip.
