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 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.
QUEEN IDIA CANDLE (Large 220g)
Absolutely lovely as I have ordered these before. As these were gifts, I would have paid a bit extra for a box so that I could nicely present them. All the same, fab.
I absolutely love the scent of these candles, its not like anything I've found elsewhere, clean, fresh and beautiful. Also, when one had broken in transit LIHA sent me two as replacements. Cannot recommend this brand highly enough.
i loved the candle but i was hoping a little of the story of the brand might be with it as this what inspired me to buy it and it was a gift so i would have liked to share the inspiration behind the candle with my sister.
I think I'm at the beginning of an addiction to these candles. I spotted them originally on Space NK but glad to have found the direct source. They are so unusual and rich smelling. And long lasting. Bought two for Christmas presents. One may make it into the stocking. One is already lit in my living room.
