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, there is little odor and soot when the candle light is put out, and the flame tends to be larger in size and has a distinct 'tremor'.

For over 200 years, Omori Warosoku Workshop has been protecting the tradition of candlemaking using techniques passed down from Japan's Edo period (1603 - 1867). Based in the small mountain town of Uchiko, Japan, the 7th generation craftsmaster Ryotaro Omori continues to train candlemakers, who generally have to study for at least 10 years under his tutelage before being considered a fully qualified candle craftsman.
