The son of our parish priest is a novice at St. Tikhon and recently started making candles for them to sell.

Go to "shop online" and then to "candles."

The quality of the small tapers is very nice. They are thicker than the ones our parish previously bought. These ones don't bend/warp as easily.

Eastern Orthodox Monasteries that raise Bee's and sell honey......You Best bet...

You can buy Them In Church as well and take them  Home thats how i get mine,...I use Them when dangeous weather threatens My Area,  i light them before a Ikona or Cross for protection and it works.......

You can Buy them in bulk Thur Monasteries or convents....I believe aLot of Eastern orthodox churches may also buy them this way.....Never thought to ask the monastery that i attend, where they got there candle from........Try Greek Orthodox religious business that sell everything ...Incense ,candles ikons ect ...ect...

They do a good job and are good monks worthy of our support.
