Japanese Rice Wax Small Candles, White
A box of 10 45mm dip-dyed Wa-rosoku (hand rolled candles), renowned for their steady burning and even flame. Made of rice bran wax, a hard yellow wax extracted from the otherwise wasted husk and germ of rice. The wicks are made of washi paper, rolled around a rush skewer, and the body is built up by rotating this in the right hand whilst the hot wax is smoothed about the shaft with the left. Presented in a box depicting a cat and mouse — candles made from natural wax attract mice, so Japanese candle makers traditionally keep cats. Each candle last around 15 minutes, recommended for use during a rest break or meditation. 1 box supplied.
