 Product Description:

Unique, unusual and beautiful – these handmade elephant candles are almost too stunning to light.

These striking, multi-coloured elephant candles are the perfect gift for animal lovers as well as for art collectors. 

If you do decide to light them, these fairtrade candles will look stunning when lit, as the candlelight shines through the colourful exterior wax pattern. Vegan-friendly and unscented, they’re perfect in any home. 

Will you light yours or will you cherish these candles as pieces of art and good-luck charms in your home?

Hours of enjoyment: Did you know that these fair-trade elephant candles last between 10 and 25 hours, depending on size?

A unique and beautiful pattern: Each candle in our collection 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 animal 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.

Beautiful things should belong to beautiful souls.” Muriel Barbery 

Our Elephant Candles certainly are beautiful, ethical and perfect for those who appreciate art. So, make sure to buy one (or more!) if you would like something special in your home or a charming gift for your loved ones. As all candles are handmade, please expect some differences in sizing and patterns.

Symbolism: In African culture, elephants symbolise strength, power, wisdom and loyalty. In Feng Shui, an elephant with a lifted trunk will bring good luck to your house.

Swazi Candles believe strongly in the principles of Fair Trade and are founding members of SWIFT (Swaziland Fair Trade Association).

Sizing:

Small – approx. 8 cm high and 10 cm in length (burn time: approx 10 hours)

Large – approx. 15cm high and 16cm in length including tusks (burn time: approx 25 hours)

All candles are hand made so please expect some differences in sizing and patterns.

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! 😊
