Turn any hotel room or temporary space into a spa haven with the mini versions of two classic products. The 30ml Idan oil is just enough to use daily on a mini break and can replace a lot of products in your case: hair oil, massage oil, shaving cream, body oil, after-sun. The glass packaging also makes it perfect to use as a refill next time round. The mini candles has a 15 hour burn-time and will add calm and romance to any space.
Queen Idia, African Moss Candle;
Our candle is made from clean burning sustainable coconut wax with base notes of Geranium and Frankincense, top notes of Lavender and hibiscus invoking the fragrance of soft African Moss. We use cotton wicks and recyclable and reusable container.
The famous Queen Idia, forever immortalised as a Benin Bronze. Queen Idia is a symbol of female empowerment and proof of ancient matriarchal societies. The myth tells of two medicine-filled incisions on her forehead that were the source of her metaphysical power.
How To Use: The burn time for the 90g is 15 hours
Ritual: You need the Queen Idia candle on the side of your bath at all times in case of emergency! Light the candle and sit back on relax.
Idan is the Yoruba word for magic, which is the only word to describe our sublime moisturising oil. Made with natural, cold pressed coconut oil into which a Tuberose flower has been immersed, ensuring the wonderful scent of this night blooming flower is absorbed naturally into the oil by a traditional African process of enfleurage.
As well as smelling divine, Tuberose has naturally warming and aphrodisiac qualities.We love to use this for absolutely everything from facial oil to leave in hair conditioner, or if we are feeling really indulgent, slathering it head to toe before bed and rinsing off in the morning for truly silky fragranced skin. Some customers have even been known to decant it and use as a solid perfume. Let us know what you new uses you discover!
Both of these products are fantastic, the candle is beautiful and burns more cleanly and evenly than any other candle I’ve come across (and I’m pretty candle-obsessed!) The oil was already an absolute favourite of mine and my husband’s; we can’t live without the Idan magic now!
The smell is fantastic!!!
I can’t really understand why an oil that is solid would be packed in a bottle it would be easier if you could get a bit out and warm in your hands a jar would seem to suit this product better. Personally I didn’t like the smell of it at all it is very overpowering. The packaging is lovely and I haven’t used the candle yet I got it for travelling.
I really like the smell of the candle, very subtle yet powerful. The scented body oil is simply sweet magic, leaving your skin feeling silky and smooth. Loved both products!
I bought this as a gift for my sister and she absolutely loved it! It's always nice to support a brand that believes in ethical values, promotes heritage and self care.
