Product Description:

Unique, unusual and beautiful – Perfect for the perfect Christmas table.

Add some unique festive cheer to your Christmas table this year with these gorgeous and ethical Christmas candles with a beautiful Holly pattern. As they burn they gently glow through the patterns and bring some beautiful festive light to the room.

Each of these Christmas candles with a Holly pattern has been expertly crafted by professional candle-makers in the mountain kingdom of Eswatini, so you can be sure of exceptional quality. And as they’re handmade, no two Elephant Candles will be exactly the same.

The artisans shape these candles using the ancient ‘millefiori’ technique, which was perfected in Italy to create the finest glass sculptures. This technique was then translated into use with wax.  

Did you know? The link between holly and Christmas can be traced back to Roman times. It was the sacred plant of Saturn, the god of agriculture. The Romans sent boughs of holly to friends to mark the Saturnalia Festival, celebrated between 17 and 23 December—the darkest time of the year. After the Romans adopted Christianity, holly became a symbol of Christmas instead.  

Also, druids wore it in Northern Europe to ward off evil. Anyway… we got completely side-tracked when looking into holly! 

Aside from these interesting facts, the candles look incredible when lit. If there was a glowing competition, they would surely win. And, do you want to know something else amazing? Thes larger patterned pillar candles are reusable! Just pop in a tea light after they’ve burned down in the middle and keep using them forever.

Size

Mini Pillar: 6cm high by 7cm wide
Burn time: Approx. 15 hours

Mini Cube: 5cm high by 5cm wide
Burn time: Approx. 15 hours

9cm Pillar: 9cm x 9cm
Burn time: Approx. 45 hours each (These sizes are reusable due to the hard outer wax maintaining its shape – therefore you could add a tea light and keep using the candle forever!)

Double Pillar: Approx. 18cm x 9cm
Burn time: Approx. 80 hours. (also reusable!)

Care Instructions:

  • Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch (0.6 cm).

  • Remove all packaging before use and place your lovely candle in a suitable container capable of containing any wax spillage.

  • Although the candle is generally self-contained, we advise using a heat resistant coaster or similar.

  • Burn your candle away from drafts and for no more than a couple of hours at a time (this prevents the hard outer wax from melting).

  • Extinguish your candle with a snuffer or the back of a metal spoon. Take care not to damage the wick.

  • Pour off any molten wax, if necessary, to enhance the flame.

  • Lean back, relax and enjoy! 😊
