Brass candle holders are bound to get wax on them. Properly removing the wax buildup will ensure that you don't damage the finish. This is a guide about cleaning candle wax from brass.
How do I clean wax from a 9 stemmed brass candelabra?
Not at all difficult, mizmac, but perhaps a bit time consuming. A sink full of hot water, as hot as you can make it (or a hair dryer or heat gun if you have) and alternate by putting the thing in your deepfreeze. Back a forth a few times, chipping bits of wax off after removing from freezer, scrubbing bits off after removing from hot water ....
The freezer will usually work. Just freeze the holder for a couple of hours and the wax will become brittle and pop right off. Or we use a heat gun and carefully heat the wax and catch the melted wax with paper towels as it loosens. It is, of course best top use bobeches, or spray the candle holder first with Pam or another non stick spray before use.

Stick the brass in the freezer for about 2 hours and the wax will come off super easy. Hope that helps!

How do I remove candle wax from my 9 hand brass candelabra?
Charline from Freehold, NJ
I worked at a home rental store and we used WD-40.
Put it in the freezer for a while.. The wax will just pop right off!
I don't know if a hair dryer would hurt the candleabra but I would try it a little at a time. Hope this helps.
Heat the hard wax on the candelabra with a hair dryer. Then keep mopping up the wax as it melts.

What is the best way to clean brass? I think I have candle wax on the bottom of the stand. What is the best way to remove it?
Any wax left in a freezer for just 30 minutes crumbles off like it was never there. Hope that helps.
