Hiems - Winter Candle

Hiems - Winter Candle


Seeds buried beneath the earth waiting for spring.

The Hiems (Winter) wood-wick candle beautifully captures the quintessential spirit of winter. The traditional aromas of clove studded oranges scented with warming nutmeg and cardamon with a hint of ancient myrrh makes this the perfect scent for the festive season.

Inspired by the ceramic ‘melting pots’ used by ancient alchemists to mix their healing potions and old alchemy texts documenting the influence of the seasons on alchemical process, this seasonal candle is hand poured into a reusable glazed porcelain laboratory vessel with a lid.

Makes a perfect tea-light holder or trinket jar after the candle has burned away.

Size - 100ml / 3.5oz Wax / 25 hours
