Every now and then we come across a stunning cup that cries out to be made into a candle.
Rising Sun is definitely one of these and it looks as fresh today as when it was fired over 100 years ago. Timelessly elegant, smells wonderful, it is the perfect gift or treat.
- 150ml coconut, rapeseed and extra virgin beeswax
- ylang ylang, petitgrain and lime essential oils
- hand decorated with rose petals
- pure cotton/linen blend wick
- burn time 30+ hours
- plate is 10cm square
To get the most out of your candle burn it for at least 2 hours each time you light it or until the wax turns to liquid right across the top.
Try not to burn your candle for longer than 4 hours at a time and trim the wick to 5mm when it has cooled to prevent sooting.
When you finish one of the candles you can put the cup upside down in a low heat oven on a piece of old newspaper and melt out the 10mm of wax left at the bottom. When your candle has cooled, remove the wick holder and you’ll have a lovely piece of china to use and admire!
