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.
My favourite scented candle. And that is all I need to say ❤️
Reqlly lovely candle leaves a long lasting fragrance too. Have bought for myself and so many loved ones who feel the same.
This was a gift to myself for Christmas 🎄
It’s got the most amazing fragrance and I love it. I only burn it for an hour or so and it fills my room with its delicious scent.
The only thing I’d say is it doesn’t burn evenly
And it’s wasted quite a lot of one side of the candle which is a shame.
Having researched the ultimate candle for some time, I’d heard some excellent reviews about the Queen Idia and needed no encouragement to buy from such an ethical, sustainable brand. I took the plunge and opted for the subscription without trying it first - how delighted I am! It arrived really quickly and the scent is truly the best I’ve ever had. I will possibly be adjusting my subscription to a monthly one as I can see me burning this every day. It’s not overpowering but utterly delicious - even my husband approves! Thank you, Liha, for making such incredible products and being such a brilliant brand. I will be using you all the time now. The free coconut oil was also a lovely touch. Really happy customer!
This candle is gorgeous, smells fantastic and is very relaxing.
