A candle blended with subtle citronella, hand poured by the affectionately known Candle Lady of Kathmandu, Sita. Much like many women in Nepal Sita didn’t go to school, so she turned to craft to help support her family. With a small donation from a local NGO and borrowed equipment, Sita developed her business and now creates candles for people all over her neighbourhood, rents her own studio as well as hosting her own candle making classes for other women in her community. The Mana Candle is made from a unique blend of essential oils and Himalayan beeswax; encased in an ornate, hand beaten brass candle holder, made from a Newari rice cup in the ancient city of Bhaktapur. Paraffin-free, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. Handmade only from natural ingredients. Over 50 hours burn time. Handcrafted Nepalese Lokta paper packaging. Dimensions L 9.2cm x W 9.2cm x H 11.5cm.
