Haeckels Botany Bay / GPS 26’ 3”E Candle
GPS 26’ 3”E / Cloudy Day - 270ml
This soy wax candle evokes the scent of rain as it hits the chalk cliffs, a fresh and clear fragrance coming off the rock and giving way to the scent of cliff grasses, annual sea-blite and sea orache.
Botany Bay; a picturesque bay which is a natural area of outstanding beauty but one that is used a lot by tourists and for film locations. In the winter its true elegance comes through with less people and more wildlife able to take advantage of the chalk reef, chalk cliffs and cliff hedgerows.
This beauty is perhaps shown best on days when it rains, as the rain hits the chalk a fresh and clear fragrance comes off the rock to give way to the freshness of cliff grasses, annual sea-blite and sea orache.
Top: light, elegent citrus Heart: fresh ozone Base: subtle green green floral
This candle gives an approx. burn time of 40 hours.
For the first time that you burn your Haeckels rain candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, or until the whole top is liquid with wax. This allows for an even burn the next time it is used.
Mycelium: Mycelium is the root system of mushrooms (fungi) and is usually found underground where its tiny white threads weave together. Within our packaging, these threads intertwine with agricultural waste such as sawdust, flax and hemp husks and are left to grow around a mould for a period of time. Once the whole mould has turned white it means that the Mycelium has fully encompassed the form and is acting like glue. It is then removed from the mould and left to grow for an additional short period of time, so it takes on the lovely velvety texture. Once it has been dried, the final product is lightweight, yet fire and impact resistant. After being used for its intended purpose, it can be reused, composted or planted in your garden to improve soil quality.
Seed Paper: Haeckels seed paper is made from recycled paper pulp mixed with wild flower seeds. When feeling green-fingered, place the paper on top of a pot of compost and water well. Make sure the paper has access to light and warmth and keep the soil moist. Once the seedlings have grown big enough, you can transfer them to your garden for the birds and bees to enjoy!
