A candle which provides not only light but aesthetic warmth, and a soothing sense of calm. Burning with a tall, dripless flame, the wa-rosoku candle is found in homes and altars, made with wax from the nuts of sumac lacquer trees- a process that draws on 300 years of Japanese candle making traditions.

These are original vintage candles, bearing the gentle patina of age. Presented in beautiful and authentic packaging, each box contains 20 candles, each with a burn time of well over an hour.
