A scent that invokes the smell of African Moss


Inspired by Queen Mother Idia, a woman who embodied courage, intelligence, and leadership.

From her rise as the beloved queen to her pivotal role in securing her son's ascension to power during turmoil. Idia shattered conventions to prove herself.

This luxurious candle is designed with Idia's iconic pendant mask and homage is paid with a fragrance that captures her essence.

Made with a clean burning coconut and soy wax blend, with luxurious base notes of Geranium and Frankincense, intertwined with the delicate top notes of Lavender and Hibiscus, this scent transports you to a tranquil oasis where the earth scent of soft damp African Moss envelops your senses. Woody, refreshingly crisp, sweet and deeply profound.

Every inhale will take you into a journey of indulgence. Made with a cotton wick. Recyclable and reusable jar.

Intimate diffusion.

40-hour burn time. 220g.

For a better burning experience, trim candle wick before each use. 

The burn time for the 90g is 15 hours and the 220g is approximately 40 hours.

Try flame gazing if you find you are too restless for straightforward silent meditation. Play some high vibrational music or frequencies (852 hz is a personal fave, look on youtube). Sit comfortably, light the candle and take some deep breaths. Focus all your attention on the flame moving and your breath. When you become distracted just watch the flame, and watch your thoughts go by with it. Distance yourself from ‘monkey mind’ and come back to the present.

The scent is not only magical it’s PURE; not a hint of artificiality. High quality, and true luxury. I’ll never be without this in my home.

Christine Bland
Not the size I expected

I love the smell of this candle but for the price I was expecting a three wick size.
I was very surprised at how small it is. Gone within a week.
