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 9cl is 22 hours and the 30cl is approximately 60-65 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.
We create beauty products that are, like us, a mixture of natural African roots and a quintessentially British attitude.
Like the diaspora that we take inspiration from, our community is rooted in Yoruba culture and spreads throughout the world to share the power of Asé, wellness, slow-living and self care.
LIHA was born from the desire to create an innovative, luxe natural, organic and vegan skincare brand that blends the rich botanical life of West Africa with traditional English aromatherapy and folk remedies.
