This all natural vegan candle is made with sustainable Colza Wax for a clean burn and longer lasting effect. Blended with natural fragrances that diffuses the sweetest, fruity aroma with reminisce of longing and desire. The Rhubarb gives sour tonalities with a juicy, watery diffusion. The Pomegranate promotes a fantasy fruity note and sweet and sour effect with a fresh diffusion. Together they remind of grapefruit and strawberry scent along with a citrus note. The subtle woody base of Patchouli gives a subtle hint of humid tones and earthy aroma. The scent of the candle the a refreshing harmony of the sweetest care of aromas and embracing emotions.
The Icelandic poem, printed on the glass jar, is by Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir.
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
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.
