Homework say: Think of Metal as strength: taking shape and holding its form, it’s something magnetic, gravitational and structured. It’s the element that symbolises the essence of life and its value. Helping to make us feel certain in our choices; to see past ourselves; to let go. Remember the city at sunset? Golden shards of light shimmering against buildings, the air peppered with heat, a night full of promise laid ahead of you.

Made from a rapeseed and coconut wax blend manufactured in the UK: the rapeseed crop is grown in the EU on existing agricultural land and the coconut crop is grown by smallholder farmers in Asia. 

How to use
Burn the candle for 3 hours the first time you use it: you want the melt pool to reach the edge of the jar. And remember to trim the wick to 5mm before relighting. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
