THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Prosperity Candle
Inspired by the Burmese women who hand-pour candles here in our studio, this scent evokes a cherished memory of their Southeast Asian homeland. The rich fragrance is paired with the incredible qualities they have brought with them as refugees seeking to create a brighter future for their families in peace and harmony.
The symbol atop each label is candle's name handwritten in Burmese, the official language spoken in Burma (Myanmar). The wood wick creates a beautiful light that will transport you to a beautiful land far away. Elegant black glass completes this 8.5 oz soy blend candle which burns about 40 hours.
