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.
This candle smells INCREDIBLE! I have gotten my sisters, mom, friends hooked on this candle. And the customer service was absolutely incredible. 100% recommend!
I love the Queen Idia candle! The label is beautiful (and love the meaning behind the name- the story of Queen Idia), the wick burns really well and the scent is perfect! Ordered the candle twice now and I'm ready to do a standing monthly order!
The Queen Ida candle smells lovely and burns well. It also looks really good and makes a nice birthday gift.
There was a delay on shipping this item due to an unprecedented issue but it was well worth the wait. The scent throw of this candle is amazing - it fills my large living room with a warm floral scent that I can’t describe but even my husband said wow what is that lovely scent! Thank you Liha and Abi! I love it.
Beautiful design and it burns really well and the fragrance lasts a long time.
Very well presented, it would also make a nice gift. Highly recommend.
