For thousands of years, candles have played important roles in religious ceremonies around the world. HJ Boerboom & Associates has risen to meet the needs of modern churches by offering a diverse selection of devotional lights in Minneapolis, MN, along with sacramental candles, altar candles, and sanctuary lights. We’ve carefully chosen the candles in our catalog for their longevity, purity, and ambiance.

Liturgical Candles

In modern times, the use of liturgical candles in churches is very symbolic. As such, many denominations require that these candles consist of pure beeswax. Unfortunately, in the past, beeswax candles were known to melt and sag when exposed to ambient heat. Some candle manufacturers tried to combat this phenomenon using additives, but HJ Boerboom & Associates is committed to offering pure beeswax liturgical candles that won’t buckle as they burn. Read on to learn more about our candle manufacturing partners.

A.I. Root Company: A long time ago, A.I. Root’s son Huber was asked to create a beeswax candle that could survive sweltering summer days inside a church. The candles Huber created incorporated hand-rolled strips of beeswax from his very own hive, and sure enough, they burned clearer and longer than other candles. Today, though the manufacturing process has changed, A.I. Root Company’s liturgical candles are widely considered “the best candles in America.”
