All of our hero products housed in a gorgeous handmade bag, in our second exclusive collaboration with AAKS. Akousa set up AAKS after studying fashion in London and returning to Ghana. There she had a lightbulb moment that empowered local cooperatives of women weavers and introduced the world to her beautiful and unique creations. A very limited number of these ultra-special bags are available containing full size versions of all our most popular product offerings.

Idan is the Yoruba word for magic, which is the only word to describe our sublime moisturising oil. Made with natural, cold-pressed coconut oil into which a Tuberose flower has been immersed, ensuring the wonderful scent of this night-blooming flower is absorbed naturally into the oil by a traditional African process of enfleurage.

QUEEN IDIA, African Moss - 30cl
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 containers.
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: 30cl is approximately 60-65 hours burn time.
Ritual: You need the Queen Idia candle on the side of your bath at all times in case of an emergency! Light the candle and sit back on relax.
