Shoresh is thrilled to bring you these gorgeous, Canadian beeswax, 12-inch, hand-braided Havdalah candles. Each order comes with one candle.
Lovingly formed and twisted by human hands at the Mile-End Soap & Candle Supply in Montreal, our havdallah candles are traditionally used to mark the end of Shabbat and the welcoming in of a new week.
If you’ve never made Havdalah or want a refresher, check out this helpful video which outlines all the details for this beautiful ritual.
The purest and most natural of all waxes, beeswax burns cleanly, giving off a beautiful warm glow. Unlike petroleum-based paraffin candles that produce toxins, soot and black smoke when burned, beeswax emits negative ions, pulling pollutants such as dust, odours, toxins, and mould out of the air. Burning beeswax candles actually improves air quality and therefore improves your health, sleep, and overall well-being.
And by purchasing our candles, you are helping to protect our pollinators! 100% of proceeds go directly to growing and maintaining Shoresh's 4-acre Bee Sanctuary at Bela Farm.
