This beautiful soy candle is a collaboration between HAPA and local candle makers Huikai Creations.
I love to light candles in our home, to bring a little warmth and magic into our environment. Ive always found it to be calming, peaceful, and affirming.
This is our Matariki candle - in honour of this special time of year, and a reminder that while loss is physical, we cherish our people through emotional and spiritual sustenance - a legacy of memory, pūrakau, storytelling , ritual and aroha.
Each candle has 9 agate crystals in it - one to represent each of the Matariki whetu in the star cluster - Matariki,Tupuārangi, Waipuna-ā-Rangi, Waitī, Tupuānuku, Ururangi, Waitā, Pōhutukawa and Hiwa-i-te-Rangi
We designed a simple label, printed here in Aotearoa and featuring whetu, stars, and the phases of te marama, the moon.
We put a lot of heart and soul into this candle - I hope it brings you some reflective joy and peace, the way it does for me.
Ngā mihi aroha to Ngaire from Huikai Candles for creating this candle especially for us.
Details: 12cm tall, 200gm, burn time 40+ hours
Fragrance: Citrus, pine, woodsmoke, berry and cinnamon spice essential oils (we wanted a scent that smelled like being outside looking at the stars, while wrapped in love and your Nannys blanket)
Please recycle or reuse once the candle has burned down (drop a tealight candle in it to use over and over again!)
