For centuries, tapered candles have been formed by meticulously hand-dipping. Root takes this traditional process to another level by continuously dipping our tapers to create up to 35 individual layers of wax. The result is a satin-like finish with solid, consistently colored, unscented wax throughout. Our timeless observation: You can't rush perfection. Hand-dipped taper candles are 12-inch tall and have a burn time of approximately 12-hour each. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two on your backyard patio or a formal dinner party with your best china and linens, set the mood and illuminate the occasion with the understated elegance of Root Dinner candles.
