1803 Candles


In her 27-year history of writing, Martha Moore Ballard recorded over nine thousand daily entries in her diary. She was a midwife, medical recorder, and candle maker in late 18th-century America. Martha’s cryptic log of daily events included the making of tallow candles; often dozens every day. At the time, Martha’s candles provided light during the long winter nights of Maine. Today, they can brighten your home with the memory of a simple time and a woman whose care for others made her a hero to friends and family.


  • Each candle burns for 80-90 hours.
  • 100% soy, biodegradable and safe for the environment.

Martha would probably recommend that you put your feet up today and enjoy the warm glow and unique scents of one of our best-selling 1803 candles.
