Ore Mi Handmade Scented Candle 180ml Honey & Tobacco
Our Honey & Tobacco candle has top notes of sweet honey. At the heart there is a blend of cinnamon & nutmeg, while the base note contains amber, patchouli and musk to complete the profile.
Our small candles are hand-poured into our 180ml amber jars with our signature Oré mi label and a black gloss lid.
This candle burns for up to 40 hours.
When I was younger, my dad would bring my siblings and I pure dark honey from his trips home to Nigeria. I was mesmerised by it – its rich, dark colour, its sweetness – and I wanted to make a candle that would represent that wonder.
I combined the sweet, floral honey with earthy tobacco, to bring a deeper note to the profile, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, amber, patchouli and musk. I would like to think that one day my dad might keep bees on his farm in Nigeria; I need more honey!
We use soya wax, fine fragrance oils, and cotton-core wicks in our candles. All of our candles are vegan friendly and cruelty free.
Trim that wick! Before lighting, trim your candle wick so its no longer than 6mm.
Safety first: never leave a candle burning unattended. Ideally burn candle for at least 1 hour but no more 2 hours at a time.
Stop burning your candle when only 7mm of wax remains.
Once the candle's gone, you can reuse the jar!
Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar each burn to prevent pooling.
