Nanohana candles

Regular price $30 Unit price  per 

Description:
Responsible for their yellow hue and delicate scent, these traditional Japanese candles are made with oil from Nanohana flowers - a small, yellow blossom found on Noto Island. One box includes 40 Nanohana candles, and each one has a burn time of 55 minutes. Their 16th century candle design with a hollow center results in bright, clean, and long flames. Takazawa intends these candles to be used as a way to create a special time for yourself in everyday life - whether that is through yoga, meditation, or a dinner shared with loved ones.

History: 
Takazawa Candles was established in 1892 in the port city of Nanao, Ishikawa Prefecture. Known for designing candles that call to mind the local plant life of Nanao, Takazawa Candles are made with entirely natural materials.
