Rated 4 out of 5 by Daniel1994 Good a Havdalah candles; the best I've found yet.
Most candles are either made from dead animals, or GMO based soy/vegetable oils. According to the Aloha Bay website, this palm oil is made organically and is non-GMO. Of course, until they are verified by some organisation, such as the Non-GMO Project, I would not guarantee that it is non-GMO, but it is still the best candle I've found. At least this company states their stance against genetically-modified organisms on their website, which is more than any other candlestick maker I've found.
I bought them as a fulfillment for Havdalah candles which I light before and after the sabbath day; I would bet that all such candles bought at Jewish stores are genetically-modified, which is a shame because such things are flagrant violations of the Torah yet they're called Kosher! This goes to show that, for the most part, the Kosher-certifying bodies are only in it for the money: proof, read any Little Debbie's package; do you think any of that is clean?
Two candles last me about two weeks; when I light them before the sabbath they are burning for about 3-4 hours, and after the sabbath they are only burning for maybe 15 minutes. Therefore, I would conclude that each candle lasts for approximately 7-8 hours, exactly what the candlestick makers claim.
