The Sedona Candle Magic company was founded upon the notion of "Building Community Through the Art of Gift Giving." The founder and artists alike believe that while their candles make unique items for display, they also make fantastic, one-of-a-kind gifts that people can give to friends and family.
Each candle is 100% pure paraffin wax and hand carved by a local artisan. The artisan dips a paraffin cores into dyed layers of paraffin wax. The cores are dipped in special sequences to ensure a bright, impeccable glow effect. The artists, trained in candle specific color theory, utilize translucent shades and a variety of dipping techniques create color gradients, rainbow spectrum's, and color changes--all with simple wax. After building up the layers of hot wax, the candle is immediately carved before losing essential temperate pliability. It is not possible to reheat the layers, and depending on the size of the candle, the artist will have anywhere from 5-15 minutes to cut and sculpt the entire design.
The Sedona Candle Magic special connection with Sedona also means that the candles are more than just souvenirs of your visit. Souvenir, in French and Latin, refers to memory, or to "recur to the mind." Thus the Sedona Candle Magic team feels the same way about their candles. When you find the perfect candle, their hope is that you will take it home as a good reminder of your visit to Sedona, and as a keepsake with a real emotional attachment to it.
