The intensely floral note of the jasmine mixed will the sweet green and herbal note of the bergamot essential oil reminded me of my travel in South India, from the fresh-cut scent of jasmine garland flower tied up on the front porch of the tea houses. This is one of my favourite scent in my candle range and makes my house smell so good and welcoming, like a fresh bouquet of flower on display.
A lot of goodness in one little candle jar…
All Kalyana candles are vegan and handmade in London.
This candle is made of soy wax and a blend of naturally mood-enhancing essential oils. The wooden wick gives a lovely crackling sound when lit and a steadier burn, too.
We’ve put a lot of care and attention into making sure the packaging is as friendly to the environment as possible. All packaging can be re-used and repurposed and is 100% recyclable.
The benefit of soy wax
We choose to work with soy wax from renewable sources. This is a much better alternative to traditional paraffin wax – a byproduct of crude oil – because vegetable wax like soy burns more cleanly and much longer than paraffin. So no oily-black marks on your walls!
The other advantage of soy wax is that it washes away easily with soapy hot water, making it easy to repurpose the vessel once the candle has burned down.
Re-purposing your candle jar
Once washed, your candle pot can then be re-used for storing jewellery, cosmetics or even a little pot for a small succulent plant! Soak the jar first with boiling water to loosen the residue and then clean with soap and water.
The burning time of this candle is between 20 and 25 hours.
