Swedish Candles are becoming very popular for those of us who like to entertain outdoors - they attract a huge amount of interest and intrigue at our trade fairs so we have now added them to our website...
Swedish Candles are traditional camp or cooking fires used in Scandanavia where standard camp fires are not possible due to snow on the ground. The gaps are stuffed with woodchip and bark (or paper and a firelighter!) leaving some gaps at the bottom to allow the fire to draw. An average seasoned pine log will last around 4-5 hours.
Creating an attractive star shaped glow and flame they became popular as the 'segments' would burn down equally with the heat in the centre allowing a pan to be placed on top.
We sell Swedish Candles with a handmade base which has a spike that inserts into a hole drilled into the base of the log which ensures the log remains sturdy when lit.
They are perfect for using on patios or in city gardens. Groups of candles look outstanding lining a pathway at a wedding or at any other large outdoor function.
One kit (for £35) includes one handmade base and 1 pre-sawn and drilled seasoned pine log.
***We now offer PERSONALISED Swedish Candle Bases with up to 2 initials of your choice for only £50 - a perfect Wedding Present!***
