Love these!

I initially received one of these as a gift and liked it so much I purchased the ‘one of each’ pack. They smell great without being overpowering, last a long time, and the wood wick is such a nice touch. Will definitely order more as these run out.

We are so excited to hear that you love your candles! This is such a special collection to us too! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoy them.

The best candle made with such love and devotion

These candles are just amazing. Beside smelling great, lasting forever and made with the highest quality of material and ingredient what inspired me to buy from them is the fact there is a story behind each of the women who hand make these candles. It's inspiring and gives me gratitude knowing we're recognizing the devotion, love, care and story behind each of these lovely women!

Thank you very much, Gautam! Your support truly means so much to our entire team, especially our artisans whose home inspired this collection. We hope you continue to enjoy your Burmese candle!
