Omori Warosoku Haze Wax Candles (Iron holder not included)
While many candles on the market today are made from petroleum, Omori Warosoku candles only use ingredients that come directly from nature. Made from 100% natural sumac "haze" (pronounced hah-zay), a type of scarce wax found only in East Asia, Omori craftsmen make each candle by hand, scooping 115°F degree wax without any protective gloves to layer them around a solid rush fiber wick. The wider the candle becomes, the larger the flame it produces. Omori's process of building these candles layer by layer liken them to the rings on a tree. Due to the natural material used, they are non-toxic with little odor and soot when the candle light is put out. Enjoy the larger in size flame with its distinct and hypnotizing 'tremor'.

For more than two centuries, the Omori Warosoku Workshop has been dedicated to upholding the time-honored art of candlemaking through methods handed down from Japan's Edo period (1603 - 1867). Nestled in the tranquil mountain village of Uchiko, Japan, Ryotaro Omori, the seventh-generation master craftsman, carries forward this legacy. He diligently imparts his expertise to aspiring candlemakers, who typically undergo a rigorous apprenticeship under his guidance for a minimum of ten years before attaining the status of a certified candle artisan.

Do not leave a lit candle unattended. Keep away from children. Be careful not to cover the candle light or knock it over.
