The sisters have been making hand-dipped candles for over 25 years.  We use only pure beeswax produced by local beekeepers.  The purity of our beeswax candles allows for a clean burning candle which is especially suitable in frescoed churches.  The natural sweet honey fragrance of the candles is especially pleasant when used at home during private prayer. The candles are hand dipped and are available in our standard sizes listed below. We accept orders for private use as well as for church parishes, no order is too small or too large.  We will also make custom sized candles according to your special needs.  

Price of our beeswax candles is $15.00 per pound.

Parishes, please call the skete to place your candle order.   (315) 858-2208 

As our candles are hand dipped, the sizes may vary slightly.  

Please allow an extra week before candles are shipped.

Tips for burning soy candles 

 Wicks need to be trimmed to 1/4 inch before the candle is burned. Also, trim it after burning the candle for several hours and re-light candle. Soy Candles require larger wicks and need to be trimmed more often.

 You can burn your soy candle too long. The maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours per burn. Burning longer than the recommended burn time is also dangerous, especially when combined with improper wick trimming!

 Make sure while burning a candle it is not in any draft. A draft will distort the burning function of the candle.
