 Product Description:

Amazing rhino candles that give back in more ways than one. Not only are they fair trade but for each candle sold a donation is made to stop the poaching of these majestic animals. These Rhino candles are all handmade in the beautiful mountain kingdom of eSwatini (formerly Swaziland).
Unique, unusual and beautiful. If you know someone who loves rhinos then this is the perfect gift. As all candles are handmade, please expect some differences in sizing and patterns.

How the candles are made: 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. The wax is coloured by mixing pigments with hot wax, which is then poured into flat sheets. Sheets are marked, cut and then carefully layered according to the chosen design. The resulting slabs are compressed, extruded and re-extruded and then sliced into thin veneers. These veneers are then taken by the candle makers and skilfully stretched over a core of pure white wax and hand made into the desired shapes.

Sizing:
Small - approx. 8 cm high and 11 cm in length
Large - 14cm high and 16cm in length

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! 😊
