The world renowned Santa Rosa Candles, handcrafted in the same way for 100 years, are still used in Mexico to grace altars in churches and homes, illuminate fiestas, and to light homes.
The Santa Rosa Candles are handmade by bathing layer after layer of high-grade paraffin over a central wick using centuries-old methods. The warm color of the Santa Rosa Candles is achieved by melting actual amber (crystallized tree sap) into the wax. Each candle comes with a stamp of “Santa Rosa” in gold, denoting the patron saint of the candle workshop. The candles are unscented, and are traditionally used in churches and cathedrals throughout Mexico.
