About bústaður

This candle diffuses a bouquet of fresh and vibrant fragrances. It is composed of vegetable- and beeswax to burn cleanly in your home and spread a lovely scent.

The Icelandic poem, printed on the glass jar, is by Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir.


bústaður
ég eignast kannski einhvern tíma hús
í grafarvogi raðhús með sléttu númeri
eða íbúð með sérmerktu bílastæði þá
skiptir mig engu hvort sími sé í svefn-
herberginu stutt níður í þvottahús eða
hvort koma megi ryksugu í forstofuskápinn
ég geri þá kröfu eina að gólfefnin verði
borgfirskur mosi útveggir jökulsárgljúfur
og loftþiljur himinninn yfir herðurbreið - Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir

Residence
Perhaps one day I’ll have a house
in Grafarvogur an even numbered townhouse or
an apartment with private parking then
I don’t care if there is a telephone in the
bedroom a shortcut to the laundry
or if the vacuum cleaner fits into the hall closet
my only demand is that the flooring be moss
from Borgarfjörður the outwalls Jökulsárgljúfur
and the ceiling panel the Herðubreið mountain sky - Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir

(Translation by Halla Helgadóttir)

How to use

To ensure a clean and even burning of your candle: if possible, let the top layer become liquid wax after use, trim the wick before relighting (to minimise smoke), and keep the candle out of draught. Avoid placing the candle directly on a glass or marble surface.

This candle has a burning time of 60 hours.

Never leave the candle unattended. Keep out of reach of children. Do not move the candle when the wax is liquid.

Ingredients

Vegetable and beeswax. Fragrance of pomegranate, rhubarb and patchouli
