Candle with Channels Made of Stearin
Article Number 15819
Northern Lights – Candlelight Without Dripping.
The "Kanalljus" (i. e. channel candle) comes from the house of Liljeholmens, in Sweden, where quality candles have been produced since 1839. The candle is made exclusively from stearin of animal origin and is therefore produced without palm oil. Four channels are arranged around the wick, into which surplus wax drains. The effect: the candle burns with a majestic calm, while its large bright flame gives an almost regal light, producing hardly any soot.
These candles were originally developed for use in churches, where the flow of air would cause smaller candles to drip incessantly until they melted away. The "Kanalljus", meanwhile, would hardly flicker or drip. The relatively high melting point of stearin makes the candle burn with a sharp, even edge, rather than one that tilts and begins to drip. An additional benefit of the high melting point of stearin: even high ambient temperatures do not cause the candle to bend - its shape remains stable. After being extinguished, the liquid wax solidifies very quickly, and there is no afterglow of the wick.
