St John’s Cemetery / GPS 22’ 41”E Candle by Haeckels
Ingredients were picked on 6th August 2014, rainy day.
St John’s Cemetery soy wax candle evokes past and present combined; with a fragrance of clean pine to envelop the senses, giving way to bright, green moss that covers the cemetery and closes with a dark musk, sombre and subdued.
Burn time: approx 40 hours
Notes: Top: intense, clean and resinous pine
Heart: green and moist
Base: dark musk
Packaging: Mycelium is the root system of mushrooms (fungi) and is usually found underground. Within the packaging, the Mycelium intertwines with agricultural waste such as sawdust, flax and hemp husks and are left to grow into a mould for a period of time. After use, it can be reused, composted or planted in your garden to improve soil quality.
Seed Paper: The seed paper is made from recycled paper pulp mixed with wild-flower seeds. For the green-fingered, place the paper on top of a pot of compost and water well.
How to use: For the first time that you burn your Haeckels 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.
