    About our Burmese candles
    We've paired rich fragrances with the incredible qualities our candle makers brought with them as refugees seeking to create a brighter future for their families in peace and harmony.

    The symbol atop each label is candle's name handwritten in Burmese, the official language spoken in Burma (Myanmar). The wood wick creates a beautiful, gentle light with a soft crackling sound.

    Elegant black glass completes this 8.5 oz soy blend candle which burns about 40 hours. Click on the Product Details tab above for more information.
