Our candle is made from clean burning sustainable coconut wax blend 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.
Our inspiration was the famous Yoruba Queen Idia, 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 and the 220g is approximately 40 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.
I would love to rate the candle, but I have not received my order!! This has taken far too long!
This is sweeter than I would usually go for, but it’s so gorgeous and burns so smoothly. I got one as a Christmas present, and it’s quickly become one of my staples!
I got a smaller version of this candle in a subscription box and as soon as I burned it I knew I had to get the full version. It smells incredible and the scent is so unique. It also fills the room up with the scent after a few minutes of burning. It’s also the perfect scent for this time of year ❤️
It is the most beautiful smell
What a gorgeous candle. It arrived quickly in lovely sustainable packaging and the smell is absolutely divine! Plus Queen Idia's story is a cool one. Highly recommend.
