This candle diffuses a melange of sweet fragrances. It is composed of vegetable wax and beeswax to burn cleanly in your home and spread a lovely, evocative scent. The Icelandic poem, printed on the glass jar, is by Vigidís Grímsdóttir.
gaman, gaman, gaman, ég hef gert þetta
áður, þó aldrei, ég hef hoppað og skoppað
milli orðanna þeirra, stiklað é velgrónum
þúfum, lagst til hvíldar í gróðursælum
lautum, runnið í vænghaf og hlýju og
sofíð og sofíð og sofíð, hoppað og elskað
og sofíð og sofíð og sofíð - Vigdís Grímsdóttir
fun, fun fun, I have done this
before, yet never, I have jumped and bounced
among their words, leaped on well grown
tussocks, lain down to sleep on fertile
grassy spots, slid into a wingspan and warmth and
slept and slept and slept, jumped and loved
and slept, and slept and slept - Vigdís Grímsdóttir
(Translation by Halla Helgadóttir)
To ensure a clean and even burning of your candle: 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.
Vegetable and beeswax. Fragrance of bamboo, green tea, violets and figs.
Sóley candles are made in France.
