Candle No. 12 - Fig (Figuier)
Fig is the earthing scent of the fig tree, a symbol of the Mediterranean culture. In summer, the fig tree quickly grows its beautiful leaves, offering well-appreciated shadow and a certain coolness. A national sport in Provence is the famous afternoon-nap under the fig tree ("la sieste sous le figuier") From mid-summer, it will produce generous amounts of figs, arguably the best fruit in the world. The fig trees scent is a stress-relieving anchoring at any difficult time.
Hand-poured in Provence into our apothecary amber glass jar. Thanks to the lid, you can keep the scent of your candle longer.
Hand-cast in Provence, these candles are made from 100% natural plant wax, an organic soy wax made in Europe and certified GMO-free. Soy wax is environmentally friendly because it is 100% vegetable and biodegradable. It does not release soot, unlike mineral waxes like paraffin, making it a very healthy candle for frequent use.
To improve the beneficial effects of these candles, untreated cotton wicks that are pre-soaked in wax for better combustion, labeled oeko-tex are used. Since vegetable wax is extremely easy to clean with soap and hot water, you can wash your pot once the candle is completely burned, and recover it for a small plant or for other decorative and domestic uses.
