Keep your altar candles burning cleanly and efficiently by utilizing our candle followers and lighting tapers. Our followers (or sometimes called candle caps) are available in polished brass or heat resistant glass. Combined with using our lighting tapers for lighting, you can be rest assured of getting the maximum results with your altar candle.
- Candle followers, also referred to as candle burners, caps or wax savers, are available in all sizes to fit the largest paschal to the smallest altar candle. Candles properly fitted with followers will ensure maximum burning time, and minimize the potential for problems. A correct size follower is determined bt the diameter of the candle to be used. We can assist you in selecting a correctly sized follower for your candles. A clean, glistening follower looks and performs better. To remove any accumulated wax from the follower, immerse in warm water and wipe clean with a soft cloth or use wax remover in combination with a soft plastic scraper. Use of abrasives may affect the finish of the follower.
- Wax lighting tapers are essential for the lighting of altar candles. Lighting tapers are made mainly from wax and will not impart any ash or foreign material such as when using matches. Any unwanted matter in the wax can cause the candle to burn improperly. Lighting tapers with a high quality candle lighter as shown below, will prevent these issues.
- Prevent Altar Candles from leaning due to oversized candleholders. These "sticky" tabs are placed at the bottom of candles and adhere to the bottom of a candlestick/stand. Pack of 24.
