					                                              Q   What are Liquid Wax Candles?

                                              A   Liquid Wax Candles are lamps made to look like traditional solid wax candles.
                                                  They burn a liquid fuel, typically liquid paraffin. Almy’s Liquid Wax Candles are
                                                  formed from a beeswax-colored nylon material that is extremely durable and nat-
                                                  ural looking. Each contains a reservoir for Liquid Candle Wax in which a long last-
                                                  ing fiberglass wick is suspended. The wick holder and all other metal fittings are
                                                  made of solid brass. Liquid Wax Candles which are carefully designed more than
                                                  match the beauty of solid wax candles.

                                              Q   What is the main advantage of Liquid Wax Candles over the
                                                  solid wax candles we use today?

                                              A   Cleanliness. Liquid Wax Candles eliminate forever the hours of work and the dam-
                                                  age caused by drippings from solid wax candles. Liquid Wax easily washes out of
                                                  linens and other textiles and it never stains. Finally, Liquid Wax burns cleaner, pro-
                                                  ducing less soot and smoke than solid wax candles.

                                              Q   Are Liquid Wax Candles as safe as solid wax candles?

                                              A   Liquid Wax Candles are the safest natural flame candles obtainable. Because they
                                                  don’t “burn down” Liquid Wax Candles avoid the common hazards posed by solid

       Questions                                  wax candles: splitting and breaking, and throwing burning wick cinders. Like solid
                                                  wax, liquid wax burns “on the wick” but is difficult to set aflame otherwise. And its
                                                  high flash point makes liquid wax safe to store on the church premises.

       & Answers                              Q   We spend a lot of money on candles now. Can Liquid Wax
                                                  Candles help with our budget?

                                              A   Yes! The Liquid Wax Candles are an investment which will pay dividends, because
                                                  the liquid wax they burn is less expensive than solid wax candles. Also, the bottom
                                                  third or half of the solid wax candle that most churches throw away represents waste
                                                  which will be eliminated by Liquid Wax Candles. Add the savings from no longer
                                                  having to clean, repair or replace soiled or damaged linens, hangings and fixtures,
                                                  and Liquid Wax Candles make great economic sense.

                                              Q   Our church has burned wax candles ever since I can remember.
                                                  Aren’t they the traditionally correct thing for the altar?

                                              A   No, not really. As traditionalists ourselves, we at Almy gave considerable thought
                                                  and research to this question. In fact, the earliest devices for lighting the altar area
                                                  were not candles at all, but metal or ceramic lamps fueled by liquid vegetable oils.
Liquid Wax Candles & Pure Liquid Candle Wax       Candles were a later innovation. You might think of our Liquid Wax Candles as
                                                  lamps in the original tradition.
Q   We like to think of the burning of candles at worship as an
    offering to God. Do Liquid Wax Candles violate that tradition?                         Q   Can I expect to pay more for Almy Candles and Liquid Wax
                                                                                               than I would with another supplier?

A   We don’t think so. In Liquid Wax Candles, the liquid wax serves the same function
    as the solid wax in old-style candles. It is the fuel which is consumed by the flame,   A   Absolutely not. The Almy Liquid Wax Candle is intended to be less expensive to
                                                                                               own than any other brand available. The candles themselves are priced lower
    and is as fitting an offering as the solid wax.
                                                                                               than brands of similar quality and competitively with some that are not made to
                                                                                               Almy standards. And Almy’s Liquid Candle Wax is less expensive than any sim-

Q   Doesn’t church law require the use of beeswax candles?                                     phy of selling directly to customers without relying on retail stores or dealers,
                                                                                               and by packaging the wax in efficient 32 ounce (.946 liter) containers rather

A   No. In the various liturgical churches of Western Christianity there is no current
    rubric or canon requiring the use of beeswax candles. The custom of burning
                                                                                               than expensive disposable cans.

    beeswax candles has given way, in many places, to more convenient and economi-
    cal forms of liturgical lighting. Many churches have had to give up the use of
    beeswax candles (or even 51% beeswax candles) because they have become so              Q   What other advantage does Almy offer?
    expensive and, quite frankly, difficult to maintain. Liquid Wax offers an acceptable,
    practical and, above all, beautiful alternative.                                       A   Service, backed up by the Almy Guarantee. Since its founding in 1892, our com-

Q   What are the special advantages offered by Almy’s Liquid
    Wax Candles?

A   INCOMPARABLE BEAUTY Almy candles are designed and proportioned to replicate
    the classic beauty of solid wax candles. Most liquid wax candle makers offer styles
    and sizes which are not consistent with traditional solid wax candle dimensions. As
    a result, they are not well matched to existing candlesticks and represent a real
    aesthetic compromise. Almy provides the widest range of traditional sizes and styles

    EASY USE Because they are proportioned to match popular sizes of traditional solid
    wax candles, Almy Liquid Wax Candles will fit most existing candlestick fixtures.
    You avoid the difficulty of having to tinker with your fixtures to adapt them to
    improperly dimensioned candles. Almy Liquid Wax Candles are easy to refill, and
    they require virtually no maintenance.

    LASTING QUALITY Almy Liquid Wax Candles are made with fine materials to exact-
    ing standards in our own workrooms by the same craftsmen who create Almy altar
    appointments and sacred vessels.
