Mithras Halcyon - hand dripped Byzantine Beeswax Candles. 3.2" base
The Halcyon series represents our platonic ideal of a candle with regard to both form and function. They're wide with a robust wick and cast a golden light. The Halcyon I is the stout entry to this series, preferred by scribes and dwarves of the mountain with a 100-120 hour burn time. The Halcyon II is one our most beautiful candles and has enough bee-produced energy to last an entire season with a burn time of 160-180 hours. The Halcyon III is a tall marvel at 8.5”
The ancient god Mithras was of Persian/Zoroastrian origin, a protector of truth and a god of illumination who was later incorporated into a mystery cult in ancient Rome. It is thought that beeswax candles first made an appearance in the west during Roman Mithraic mystery rituals. Today Mithras candles creates Ancestral lighting for the Body, Mind & Spirit using locally-sourced beeswax.
