Ciergerie des Prémontrés
Find us on the Route of EPV:
The company makes candles and church candles. The workshop uses 20 tonnes of wax each year. The workshop uses ladling techniques to make its church candles (to make candles that have the same diameter from top to bottom. One by one, the wicks, which are attached to a metal hoop, are coated in hot wax using a ladle) and "plunge" techniques (to get cone-shaped candles which are narrower at the top. The cotton wicks are laid out in a U shape on wooden rods attached to frames and are then plunged into the wax together).
To get even colours, colour pigments are sprinkled into the melted wax and rotated several times. The company meets a few specific orders, notably for churches. The candles church candles are sold in France and abroad, through the workshop and via Internet.
