Mirth Pillar

$34.00

Featuring embossed imagery of angelic children (also known as putti) who represent high spirits, inner peace, and leisure, the Mirth Pillar candle beholds the beauty of being and the gift of time. Play, storytell, sing, dance! Harvest the fruits of life. 

Created with a custom in-house candle mold replicated from an antique vessel (so you won’t find this design anywhere else) and hand poured and hand finished in small batches in upstate New York using sustainably-sourced beeswax from local apiaries.
Beeswax is perfect by nature. It is the slowest and cleanest burning wax on earth.

Created by the brilliant honeybee, beeswax naturally boasts a pollen-infused color and a floral-sweet scent. And beeswax candles cleanse the air on a molecular level. Burning beeswax candles emits negative ions, which neutralize positive ions (airborne allergens like dust, dander, pollen, smoke). In nature, negative ions are found at beach fronts and at the top of mountains, where there is little to no air pollution. This medicinal property contributes to why we feel good after lighting a beeswax candle. And the long burning, warm glow radiates the same spectrum of light as the sun. Amazing.

Candle measures approx 3’’ x 2.25’’ with a 40-hour burn time. Comes in a reusable tin.

100% sustainably sourced beeswax. Cotton wick.

Place on a plate before lighting. Standalone pillar candles have minimum burn times, each time they are lit. The Mirth Pillar is 3” wide, therefore is suggested a minimum of 3hrs each burn. Especially during the first burning, allow the wax pool to expand toward the outer edge of the candle. This is to correctly set the memory of a candle, so it does not tunnel and waste beeswax. Once extinguished, the upper wall of the candle will be warm. It is suggested to “hug” the Mirth Pillar candle (see the video on this page for guidance). Gently press the upper wall of the candle inward, toward the wax pool. This will keep an even burn all the way through.

Consider this: the candle flame is a living entity. Respect the candle. Mind the fire. Burn candles within sight and on an even surface. Never light a candle near or on anything that can catch fire. Never leave a candle unattended. Keep candles away from children and animals.

100% beeswax sometimes “blooms”– this is when a powdery coating appears. This naturally occurs due to temperature changes. Beeswax bloom is safe to burn or can be removed with a soft and dry cloth.

Founded in 2017, Beeswax Candles by Alysia Mazzella began as a personal practice of burning tapers daily and collecting brass candlesticks…and grew to offer hundreds of slow-made candles within the first year. Today, Alysia studies and teaches the ancient relationship of humans and honeybees, while her collection nods to traditional candles for function and spirit.

Alysia makes each beeswax candle by hand. No added scents. No added dyes. Just beeswax and a cotton wick. Handcrafted with integrity and intention in upstate New York using sustainably-sourced beeswax from local apiaries.

And because beeswax is a precious resource (you need about 9lbs of honey to harvest 1lb of beeswax from a hive), Alysia offers the Beeswax Exchange. The Beeswax Exchange allows you to recycle any amount of 100% beeswax in exchange for hand-dipped tapers. Find out more about this incredible program here.  

In addition to candle making, Alysia is the co-founder of Backland Gardens.
