Premium Candle Crafting Since 1855

Altar Brand 51% beeswax candles perform with consistency


Altar candles are candles set on or near altars for religious ceremonies. Altar candles may be placed directly on the altar or in tall stands to the side of or behind the altar.

The Church prescribes that the candles used at Mass and at other liturgical functions be made of beeswax. Our Altar Brand 51% beeswax candles are made from beeswax, one of nature�s resources. The pure candle wax, extracted by bees from flowers, symbolizes the pure flesh of Christ, while the candle wick itself signifies the soul of Christ, and the flame represents His divinity.

Will & Baumer provides small-diameter altar candles in the following sizes: 3/4 x 10-5/18", 7/8 x 8", 7/8 x 12", 7/8 x 16-1/2", 7/8 x 24-1/2, 1 x 12-7/8", 1 x 19-3/8", 1-1/16 x 16-1/2", 1-1/16 x 33-1/4", 1-1/8 x 10-1/2", and 1-1/8 x 14-7/8" and large-diameter altar candles in sizes 1-1/4 x 12", 1-1/4 x 16", 1-1/4 x 24", 1-1/2 x 9", 1-1/2 x 12", 1-1/2 x 16", 1-1/2 x 24", 1-1/2 x 33", 1-3/4 x 9", 1-3/4 x 12", 1-3/4 x 16", 1-3/4 x 24",1-15/16 x 12", 1-15/16 x 16", 1-15/16 x 24", 2 x 9", 2 x 12", 2 x 16", 2 x 24", 2-1/4 x 9" and 2 1/2 x 12", 2 1/2 x 24".
